Pretty insulting. Hes already passed lebron because he plays defense AND dominates the stat sheet. Lebron put all his effort into offense and turned out to be a bust in the playoffs. Zions already a better player on intensity and effort alone.

Anybody can be great if every single player master the jump shot in the n.ba . today game is about jump shot because the. game is extended out to the perimeter for the three point shot. The game is not played so much close together, like before. Plus with no hand check rule . With Zion explosive to the basket he will do well we all will see he's playing with the big boys

I currently watch mostly SPURS content. Cause: i didn't have knowledge about basketball until i caught an SA game while underway with the Navy. Fellin love with them because i could watch, and learn. Watching his highlights...
He is not just BIG but he uses it the right way. And.. AND! , things WILL begin to change for the NCAA.
Please make the sacrifice by setting the example. Netflix is upping there price to compete with there competitor, HULU, NCAA take care of your employees! Please.
[ I apologize; but we say that "if the product is free, we are the product" but if people are paying to enjoy the viewings of these games some way, some how ... How much money we talking?!? ] .
+ Change should come don't hold out *be the example
Please -CHUTNEY :)

Game & players have evolved. Big & strong, but quick, dribbles like PGs and can shoot behind arc. That's why bygone players can't compete with the LBJ, Durant, Greek Freak, AD, KAT, Simmons of the modern era.

To me he's everything and more with the body, handles, hype and "The Box Cutt" of Larry Johnson to go with those crazy hops.... without a doubt He's LJ2.0... or GrandMaMa 10.0. 😂😂😂😂😂

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.

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

I'm going to tell you something right now number one LeBron didn't go to college but at the same time now LeBron was an amazing player coming out of high school from St Vincent St Mary I was in Akron when he started playing ball but then at the same time y'all Zion is not LeBron or Jordan in any type of capacity but he is a player to be reckoned with and that man and a body of his I don't know who's going to be able to stop them when he gets in the fast break
