If I could pray for any basketball player to not have an injury in their career, and it come true. My pick would be Zion. I just have to see what he becomes, at 100%.

RJ Barrett is also a sick talent. Let's not forget him either.

Why are you obsessed wth his weight? Could be fat. Itís not hard to compare him to the likes of early Larry Johnson and Julius Randle. Really simple really. Two guys who have solid handles that get most of their points closer to the rim despite a shaky jumper.

He’s not fat... he doesn’t have super defined 6 pack abs but then again he’s not a Calvin Klein model. He’s built for power. His size is what makes him interesting. We’ve never seen someone this big and bulky with this type of athleticism.

Also those comparison are just not good because he’s 35 pounds bigger and infinitely more athletic. Not even close.

Larry isnt a bad comparison though Zion gets up a bit more than he did. Larry had a lot of those barely high enough dunks that just had a lot of power. Partly because he was short though. I remember some basketball card I saw claiming he was 6'7''. Ive seen Larry Johnson. Hes like 2 inches taller than me.

How do you know itís not fat? Itís damn sure not muscle.


Comparisons arenít good based on what? Oh I predicted your response

Kids like you canít examine basketball talent and skills outside of jumping high. You never saw Larry Johnson so I understand your mind canít see it for what it is.

You know who else was kind of like this? Pre-injury Leon Powe. He was like Williamson in HS but ACL tears kept him from the career he should have had. This guy is an interesting prospect. It'd be funny if the Cs get him with that Kings pick.

What's your point? You confirm that he is overrated? Out of the 4 he is probably the worst. Cam is a monster, literally KD. And RJ is clearly the next GOAT. Zion is just a freak but has no real game.

He could just as easily be McDyess.

McDyess had comparable athleticism:

Terrible comparison. Mcdyess is taller for starters and wasn't a slasher like Zion is. The comparison starts and ends with explosiveness when dunking.
