New Orleans Pelicans star Zion Williamson is yet to make his season debut, and his weight has been the hottest topic since the pre-season.

Hall-of-Famer and one of the Inside the NBA hosts, Charles Barkley, also chipped in, saying that Williamson should lose weight. Furthermore, Barkley even gave diet advice.

“I would put Zion on a diet I was at one point: if it tastes good, spit it out. If it tastes good, spit it out,” Barkley said, laughing.

Although Barkley was making a joke, he knows what it’s like to deal with weight problems. The former player had weight problems in high school and college.

However, after being drafted by the Philadelphia 76ers, Barkley learned how to prepare and condition his body in a professional manner.

Meanwhile, about a month ago, ESPN’s Tim MacMahon reported that 21-year-old Williamson came to pre-season camp weighing nearly 150 kilograms (330 pounds). Currently, New Orleans Pelicans star continues his right foot rehabilitation in Portland.

“They think they don’t have food in Portland,” Barkley made another funny remark.

However, at the end of the conversation, Barkley let everyone know that he wishes nothing but the best for Williamson. 

“Zion, we love you, man. We want you to get healthy,” Barkley ended the segment.
