Zion’s explosiveness and motor make him an unparalleled prospect | 2019 NBA Draft Scouting Report
- Published: 15 May 2019
- ESPN NBA draft analyst Mike Schmitz analyzes the strengths and weaknesses of Zion Williamson, whom he calls the most-hyped prospect of the one-and-done era. Schmitz says we’ve never seen a physical specimen quite like Williamson, but the former Duke Blue Devils superstar does share similar qualities to former NBA All-Stars Charles Barkley and Larry Johnson. In his scouting report, Schmitz points out that Zion’s skills, motor and basketball IQ make him an ultra-skilled shot creator and electric mismatch maker. Schmitz also points out that Zion may be known for his explosive high-flying dunks, but he has the makeup to be an equally devastating defender as he gains experience.
