      Zion is simply not LeBron, it's not even his style, I love the comparisons to Barkley and Malone

              There is a fantastic comparison of this player. LeBron is not the one only in Hype is where this should be compared. The player is Larry Johnson 100.

                  Its weird hearing Skip say it's not fair to compare them when skip literally made his career off of comparing Lebron to MJ.. lol wasn't too concerned with what's fair when it was making you millions huh Skkkiiiiipppp?

                        I bet even zion himself won't compare himself to lebron. Lebron is the only lebron i'm not a lebron fan but imagine if there was social media back then ?

                          Mannnnn I’m still of the opinion that we’ve had a Jordon, we’ve had a Kobe, we’ve got a Lebron still rn... let’s just give it time and let Zion be Zion. If Zion becomes one of the greats... awesome. But he doesn’t need to be anyone else. He’s Zion. Let’s leave it as that aye.

                                I hate how every Rookie that’s an Athletic Forward always gets compared to Lebron. Like for real. Wiggins was supposed to be the “Next LeBron” or the “Next Jordan” and look where he is now.

                                Let these guys make a name for themselves. There will never be a “Next (Insert HoF level Player)” ever.

                                    Skip likes Lebron he just don’t like Lebron mentioned with MJ.

                                      Skip is a secret Lebron apologist. Very few people actually criticize Lebron for what he is - an overrated, statpadding ballhog.

                                            Zion is much skilled than Lebron right now in my opinion!! His footwork is better, shot is better, handles are better and overall skills are better.

                                                Zion is looking a lot like a future most unstoppable player in the NBA. For him scoring against Gobert isn’t a big deal and Gobert is one of the best if not the best defensive big in the game. That says something. Also his balance, decisions, movement is already at a pretty good level. If he stays healthy - he is top 10 in the league in like 3 years. He will be better than almost anybody in the history if he continues to grow as a player and avoids injuries.

                                                      Who cares whether Zion is a passer or not. That is not the measuring stick for greatness. LeBron is no magic Johnson as a passer either

                                                                                • mixio hili

                                                                                  Why do we always gotta compare Zion to an nba player? It’s his rookie season. Let him be Zion Williamson instead of Shawn Kemp Or Lebron.

                                                                                  • Cold Bizzness

                                                                                      I was actually at Zion's debut against the Hawks. The guy's a monster. If he stays healthy he's gonna be at the top of the league really fast.

                                                                                      • mixio hili

                                                                                    • sha broussard
