Obviously an athletic freak.

But go watch Justice Winslow in highschool as a junior, was doing freakish things.

Need to see overall game against good competition. Also position may depend on his further height increase.

Lebron's highlights were the same when he was in High School.

Lol. LBJ is one of the highest IQ players in the league. Athleticism isn't everything.

I'm not buying the HS highlight hype. Kid hasn't shown much of a jumper or handles vs legitimate talent. He really doesnt stand out when he plays against his top ranked peers. He's getting by off of pure athleticism and size for now vs kids who look like insidehoops posters. I need to see him in college to better assess how he will translate to the NBA. He'll make it no question just unsure how good he will be. If he can somehow become Larry Johnson the undersized PF then that could work in his favor.

Great athlete but I need to see him in a full game. The form on his jumper looks pretty bad which doesn't bode well. I think he'll clearly make an impact due to physical gifts but he could be limited in a league that values shooting so much.

The first thing he needs to do is hire a conditioning coach.

Kinda seems like a shorter Julius Randle from what I saw vs. the big ballers

Exactly my thoughts, man amongst boys. If you watch Wiggins vs randle from a few years ago the similarities are uncanny

a year ago his highlights were great after the injury i think randle is better based on the fact that Randle can handle the ball much better . as for Zion he is all hype for now i've seen him against other top power forwards hell even a small forward was able to take the ball away from him . so Gobb is right if he turns out to be Larry johnson part 2 then good for him...

He reminds me of Maxiel (Maxiel from Pistons for those who can't remember)

I love watching this kid play but have not seen him get tested on the defensive end.

Athleticism will only get you so far in today's NBA.

Do you guys know that....Zion was built by the machines to ensure that
the freed humans would all gather in one place, and The One was created
to be their religious figure, helping to distract them from renewed war
with the machines. Both forms of control.
