Default Pelicans are constantly on national TV

The NBA needs to figure out how to adjust TV schedules so that when a team that's on national TV a lot has a major injury, or isn't that good, etc. they can swap the game out for another game without having to adjust much of anything else.

Anyway, Zion Williamson should be back in action sometime in early/mid December.

I'm pretty sure they can flex schedule a replacement game any time they want and on pretty short notice. My guess is the opposing teams have been pretty big draws. Then there's Thursday nights, when there are only like 3 games scheduled and one of them usually starts an hour early at the 6pm slot instead of the 7, so they're screwed on those.

Oh, and did you see that pic of Zion showing up to the arena in a giant sweatsuit with skinny pants and a grease stain on them? Looked like a bored housewife you're embarrassed you married because she blew up into a blimp within a year of the vows.

Pels vs Warriors was the worst of all, everyone thought they'd be seeing Curry vs Zion but instead it was Eric Paschall vs Jrue Holiday

Yeah they should plan for at least a backup game every televised game. That and not put all their eggs in the same basket. Between Clippers, Lakers, Bucks, Sixers, Rockets and Warriors, there were plenty of other intriguing teams to watch. Balance out the games with all of those teams plus the Pelicans if Zion is so compelling and then when one or two of those teams suffers a season altering injury, there are still plenty of matchups that are unaffected.

Meanwhile the Suns are actually playing good ball and have almost 0 national coverage. Oh well.

Sad to see Zion as a rookie have to deal with the destructive record Ball and Ingram plagued Pelicans with when he returns
