    Now that I’ve finally seen some of these Zion videos I can tell he’s not just hype. His power, handles and foot work is ridiculous.

      I'm excited for Zion's career. I get nervous about players so dependent on their athleticism (it can be taken away by injury whereas skill is less likely to do so IMO)

        I understand the hype around Zion but this footage here shows you Zion not a PF. If Zion had a jump shot he probably would be drafted at the SG or SF. He has a decent handle because HE'S NOT A PF. He's post game needs work because HE'S NOT A PF. His game based on all athleticism. The pelicans gotta realize HE'S NOT A PF.

                      Zion's ballhandling and passing is very underrated.

                              This team will be a force in transition and on defense, but with lonzo, zion and hayes on the floor, shooting and spacing will be a major problem. I worry that it will hurt zion's ability to be effective in the halfcourt offense.

                                                  David Chiu  4 weeks back

                                                  Interesting to see him against great quick defenders playing the SF/PF position like Giannis, Draymond green, Siakam, Kawhi, Paul George. I beleive these players could have a big chance to stop him in or bother him during transition

                                                    What's his wingspan, hand size, and hand span. If amazing, he can start developing the game of Kawhi. 6'7'', using power to get to his spot, pull mid-range shots, and be a good perimeter defender. That will make zion move to the SF or SG, which would be good for his career.

                                                          Hoy. Could you do a video about why "dream shake" centers can't be found in the NBA since Hakeem times and answer the question if it still possible to create a modern center like that / if its still possible to be successful with that type of offense moves...

                                                            He has no sustainable advantage. Can he shoot consistently, no.

How will you let Zion and Randle combine well since they all need balls and not really good at off ball cutting ? Plus, how confident you are about the issues of Ingram's recovery and chemistry between Holiday and Ball? Don't get too excited, Coach.

That's not hate, I am amazed at the situation that agency was able to bring about at the league's marquee franchise. With that said, Jeanie Buss is really rolling the dice, essentially surrendering the franchise to lebron et al. and the abrupt departure of Magic Johnson makes me concerned about what is going on behind the scenes. The bottom line is championship(s) plural. This isn't Cleveland or Miami where being competitive and getting a championship is an oustandingly successful stint. This Showtime where Lebron's tract record of being in the Finals every year is an expectation and one championship is the minimum to avoid being viewed as a failure. ...i hopr they do it.

But AD body and offense was already light years ahead of Zion in the same year. I think Zion will be able to live up to expectations once he hits his 4th year with proper care of his body.
