    Let him grow. He can’t pass, shoot free throws, 3 pointers, use his right hand, no mid range game...he plays in the post and dunks and is short for his style of play in the nba. Huge upside, body is ready. Let Zion prove himself and establish. Its still potential. He can be ruined like most players that never reach their potential.

    How do they just skip over what larry Johnson was, 6'5 250lbs power, explosion and highly skilled, and also "undersized" for the position but was so strong and powerful he dominated most guys at his position, that's who Zion reminds me of, not saying those other comparisons are wrong at all, just his body type is almost identical to LJ's

    He will not live up to the Lebron hype, the dude is good, but it is almost impossible to live up to the LeBron hype, just my opinion. Lebron has been to the finals 8 years in a row, how can he live up to the hype if R.J. Barrett is a better player, c,mon Stephen A.

    ESPN should stop hyping these guys up. Just let things flow & let his game do the talking. These analysts are the same one who's going to say they're disappointed if he doesn't play as well as they expect him to. Just let things flow. His game will tell us everything

    I made a mistake Kobe won two championships without Shaq but he still deserved and MVP more than just one time and also how come when James Harden shoots the ball and doesn't pass it he's not cold a ball hog he attempts more shots per game than Kobe ever did on average and Kobe was considered a ball hog double standard kind of funny anyway Wilt Wilt Wilt greatest of all-time nothing's going to change my mind second greatest of all time Kareem Abdul-Jabbar nothing's going to change that third greatest of all time Michael Jordan followed by Kobe Bryant then LeBron James

    He has lacks the height. No where near the skill set Barkley possessed either. His height will be his Achilles heel in the NBA. He cannot compete against the much taller 4 & 5’s in the NBA. He’s the next Corliss Williamson, lol. He has a future of being the greatest Harlem Globetrotter ever though, once he fizzles out the NBA.

    A phenomenal talent indeed. Both Zion, and Barrett are generational Talent. One thing Zion is good at but not great is his outside shot. My only concern would be is Zion taking too many hard fouls because he is so Big and Strong. I remember Shaq taking so many hard fouls because you had to prevent the and 1. Great thing is Zion unlike Shaq is a very good free throw shooter, so teams might think twice about fouling if he's almost automatic at the line. In today's NBA you have to be at least a good outside shooter, so that will force him to adapt. Once he develops that outside shot consistently he will be practically unstoppable.

    What I love is that Zion doesn’t buy into all this bullshit. He just goes out and stays playing hard the whole time he’s out there on the court. He’s not a dumbass, he’ll have a nutrition, chef, and personal trainer at the next level that will get him to where he needs to be so he can be at his best physically. He was raised by athletes and was trained from an early age. He’s not the dude to start eating like complete shit in the offseason and get totally out of shape.
