      BBALLBREAKDOWN whose the better player Zion or RJ. I personally think Rj has a more complete game but Zion’s box office.

    He's a 20 10 guy day 1 just based off his athleticism and motor. Injury is the only way he will bust, he is a bigger Westbrook, with hopefully more self awareness.

        Ok hate on me, I dare you. But I don’t think Zion will be so good, I mean the only thing that he can do is dunk he’s not that good at anything else except maybe dribbling.

          What do you think is the best landing spot for Zion?

          I just read this article and it got me thinking.

          IMO, I believe the Hawks would be best. A future starting 5 of Trae Young, Kevin Huerter, Tauren Prince, Zion, and John Collins sounds really exciting!!

                      Zion is the first guy i have seen to move with the explosiveness of michael jordan. Its not just leaping ability. A lot of guys can jump. With zion it is so much more. Its the second and third jumps. Its strength, change of direction, ability to absorb contact and finish through defenders, and an insane motor. It's the kamikaze attitude that blows away more laid back types. The early years of zion are going to be magic.

                                I am so tired of saying this I want the whole world to hear me since it seems like nobody never hears me or when they do they wanted to debate bogus comparisons Zion Williamson is the goat he is the single most unstoppable force in all of basketball I don't care on any level in Europe in the NBA in the G league in college it does not matter Zion Williamson will go down as one of the greatest players to ever play the game this man has a motor this man has heart this man has power this man has skill . And he will not be Detoured. . Comparing him to Charles Barkley comparing him to Larry bum Johnson Or how about jalen rose saying the dumbest thing I ever heard on TV he said and that Zion would not start for the fab 5 dude you should be fired for that bs coming out the side of your neck ....Zion would destroy you Chris Webber and juwan Howard at the same time Zion the greatest prospect I ever seen in 30 years of watching basketball. He is the king of Kings.

                                              I like the Charles Barkley comp. he is no lebron. The only thing that Zion has that’s similar to lebron is size and athleticism.

                                              That said, there should be a lot of concern over Zion. Is he really the best player on a championship team or is he going to need a supporting cast like he has at duke to be competing

                                                  Dont think he will be nr1 pick. That will go to his teammate RJ Barret.

                                                            I really love Zion's game but RJ has me more excited. A lot more developed in terms of Basketball IQ. He is prone to making a few head-scratching turnovers and often takes a lot of contested shots but as a 19-year-old, Zion's huge frame may make him a lot more prone to a lot of injuries than maybe someone like RJ.

                                                              How is Zion Williamson an NBA prospect at all, let alone a #1 overall prospect? Think about it. He's 6-7. If he was 6-10 or 6-11, then he would be an awesome prospect for a NBA center. But he's 6-7. His style of game reminds me of Bismack Biyombo who is 6-9. Zion Williamson is a similar type of super-athletic, dominating interior player who lacks a shooting game, and therefore, how would he project to a NBA Power Forward since today's NBA is looking for a Stretch 4's? The only position I can see him playing in the NBA is Center, and while he can dominate college Centers, how is he going to match up against NBA seven footers who have similar athletic skills? I just don't see the translation here, *unless* scouts project that he will develop into a shooter or think he's going to grow taller. Charles Barkley developed into a fine shooter, and if that's the projection, then I'd get it.

He will definitely not be a bust but he might be overhyped. The Julius Randle comparison is a bit harsh though, Randle is a good player but Zion can be more, he will be at least on Simmons level.
