I personally can’t wait to see this kid suit up, standing at 6’7 weighing 220 pounds Zion Williamson is built like a linebacker with athleticism and power which exceeds Lebron James
himself who is already being regarded the best player the NBA has ever seen. Zion Williamson has jaw dropping ferocity and athleticism and what really makes him special is his physicality and ability to drive and be comfortable with absorbing contact and finishing at the rim.
Now alot of people feel he only looks good because he is playing inferior high-schoolers who simply can’t match his size and athleticism but anyone believing he won’t succeed at the college level let alone the NBA are kidding themselves, Ben Simmons and Giannis Antetokoumpo are forwards who are thriving this season by utilizing their god given athleticism and length which makes them very hard to guard since they are athletic and long enough with superb ball-handling ability which makes them dynamic on both defense and offense since they could both play as point-forwards and cause mismatches.
Back to Zion Williamson who is already more physically gifted then both Ben and Giannis and judging from what I’ve seen the kid embraces physical contact and has no problem getting positioning in the post. He is projected as a top 5 pick in the 2019 NBA Draft and boy the sky is the limit, his perimeter game is not one of his strengths but he has shown the ability to take defenders off the dribble and create his own shot.
Not even Lebron James amazed crowds like Zion Williamson, I would definitely say Lebron James was a better prospect due to his surreal basketball IQ,unselfishness,athleticism, and Lebron James was the full package coming into the NBA. Zion Williamson reminds me of Charles Barkley since they both have brute strength and are both very physical on the low block, Zion Williamson could become a superstar in the NBA and be considered the best player in the game someday because he has all the physical tools,ball handling,size,post-moves, and god given athleticism.
