I don't know. What I see is a kid that is 100x more physically gifted than his competition. Zion has probably never been challenged on the basketball court so far for his entire playing life. I'm sure he's going to be good, but your MJ and Lebron comment is waaaaaaaaaayyyyyyy off base. The Grandmama one is better.......and that's still a huge maybe. But nevertheless, it is fun watching him dunk on kids

He’s so over hyped. The dude can jump out of the gym but he’s going to have a rude awakening when he plays some real competition.

Reminds me of DeAndre Jordan. Can’t do anything with the ball if he is not within an arm length of the basket. Definitely physically gifted though!

Same issue with so many players who seem to dominate in college, end up miserable in the pro league. They look great now cuz they're bigger, or as big as others. When they enter the pro league they will realize oh geez how come everyone's bigger than me. A few examples: Buddy Hield, Josh Jackson, Kris Dunn.

He’s more like a chunky version of Gerald green

I have a couple players that play high level aau and have played in the same tourneys with Zion. They say he's easily the best high school player they have seen play. He's plays very well against the top competition I'm told. I've nit seen him in person, but I trust the judgement of guys playing at a high level.

Victor Oladipo couldn't throw it in the ocean if he was standing on the beach in early years at IU. You can learn to shoot a better jumper.

I'm not impressed at all. Do I think he'll have an NBA career? Yes. Do I think he'll be an all star? Nope. I'd be very worried if my team took him in the top 5.

Hi is the most athletically gifted prospect in years. You can't teach that. You can teach him how to shoot. One famous European coach told me many years ago that he believes that until a player is 18, the only think he needs to work on and develop is their athletic abilities. Basketball skills come after.

This kid has a gift.

He's not that athletic. Look closer.
Not getting off the ground that high.

Length makes him look more athletic than he is..

Maybe a poor mans elton brand.

If by years you mean year. Just because he can dunk on high schoolers doesn’t mean he’s “the most athletically gifted prospect in years”. People overreact way too much to youtube dunk compilations
