That is because this season feels like one of the biggest the team has ever had.

Williamson was all smiles in the photo released and you can’t blame him: he might be on the verge of one of the most stunning comeback seasons in NBA history.
The Pels With Zion
Before an injury sidelined him for more than a year, Williamson was one of the most intense and powerful young basketball players in the league.
There were many who felt he could transform the team into a serious playoff contender all by himself.
But during his time away, the group powered forward without him and were able to put something special together, thanks to the hard work of the other men in that photo.
They were able to fight back from a losing record and make the playoffs last season.
Yes, they were taken out early in the postseason but they showed a whole lot of heart and made an impression on many NBA fans.
Now, with Williamson back on board, the team’s star power will shine even brighter in 2022-23.
Fans have been waiting a long time for a healthy and fired-up Williamson and they hope this photo is the beginning of a stellar season.
