    Default Zion is the next Charles Barkley

    He might not quite be the rebounder that Charles is, but he could be even more dynamic scoring the ball.

    He probably won't develop the post game and the touch around the basket Sir Charles had.

    21.6 PPG on 58.13% FG on only 12.9 FGAs PG for 16 seasons (including those passed his prime in Houston as 3rd option)

    22.5 PPG on 55.13% FG on only 14.5 FGAs PG for Play-Off Runs (including those passed his prime in Houston as 3rd option)

    Can the dude play a single regular season game before proclaiming him a top 20 player all time

    On the transition maybe. But Sir Charles dominated in the post. Top 5 low post player of all-time. Zion is closer to Lebron as a scorer. Or at least closer on a spectrum.

    Chuck was something else.

    Here are some numbers to illustrate this. Playoffs only. 3pt era only. Q = 100 games played.

    Top 5 offensive boards per game.
    1. Barkley
    2. Shaq
    3. Rodman
    4. Wallace
    5. Oakley

    Top 5 defensive boards per game.
    1. Barkley
    2. Garnett
    3. Duncan
    4. Malone
    5. Bird

    Top 5 total boards per game.
    1. Barkley - 12.9
    2. Shaq - 11.6
    3. Duncan - 11.4
    4. Hakeem - 11.2
    5. Wallace - 11.2

    ^^^ look at that gap between Barkley and the rest!

    Top 5 assists per game for bigs (C/PF)
    1. Draymond
    2. Barkley
    3. Horford
    4. Garnett
    5. Diaw

    Top 5 points per game for bigs (C/PF)
    1. Hakeem
    2. Dirk
    3. Malone
    4. Shaq
    5. Barkley

    Top 5 scoring efficiency (ts%) for 20+ ppg bigs (C/PF)
    1. Barkley
    2. Kareem
    3. Dirk
    3. Hakeem
    5. Shaq

    Based on playoff performance he is in the conversation for
    1. GOAT rebounder of 3pt era
    2. GOAT play making big of 3pt era
    3. GOAT scoring big of 3pt era

    I dunno why people are acting like comparing an unproven rookie to an NBA legend is some sort of insult now Peak Chuck was an offensive monster - much more versatile player than Zion anyway

    I dont get how people like you even root for players. How many people have won something Barkley didnt in your life? As a teams best player I mean. 14 maybe?

    If all the rest are losers.....who are you even repping? The Blazers franchise has not done anything Barkley didnt in the last century 40+ years. Dame a loser who never wins anything?

    If Zion is 80% of Barkley hes in the HOF.

    Yeah, it's as close as we've seen anyone be to Chuck tbh. A bit taller and more athletic, looks like he's trying to add the 3 to his game as well.

    He doesn't look to have the appetite for rebounding like Chuck did.

    He is more like a rich man's Oliver Miller.

    The ultimate small ball center.

    Barkley was a freak athlete, but he also had GOAT skills around the basket.

    Zion is obviously a freak athlete, but that alone won't make him a top tier ATG.
