Word on the Street

Zone (zohn) noun. To Be In A Zone A mental state when you’re untouchable to other players. To be in a zone, means you aren’t effected by outside interference, you just play.

Usage example: “Man! Did you see Parker whoop some on Detroit’s ass. He was in a zone last night.”

Word history: Coined and perfected in the movie White Men Can’t Jump (1992). When lead character Billy Hoyle (Woody Harrelson) with every means necessary tries to get his team mate Sidney Deane (Wesley Snipes) into the zone he has worked himself into. Deane responds with a big question mark. Ahh, it’s better if I just let you see by yourself what I mean by being in a zone.
