On today’s edition of The Jason Smith Show, Jason and Mike Harmon discuss the debut of Pelicans F Zion Williamson. Jason says the narrative of this game changed in the 4th quarter when Zion Williamson went on a 3-minute, 17 point run; one that most of the NBA viewers missed because the game was scheduled so late. Plus, Jason says this is a huge reason the NBA and MLB continue to diminish in ratings – because they are bad at scheduling games with big headlines when it comes to compensating for the east coast time. Mike says because Zion was absent through the first 3 quarters, he doesn’t blame fans for wanting to go to sleep, and you can’t blame the NBA because it was still nationally televised. Jason says he disagrees and this should have been a prime time 8 ET tip-off because it was Zions debut, and in the NBA things can change at any instant.
