    I'm not gay but I want to live in a log cabin in the woods with Zion. We won't ever have sex, but there will be a simmering erotic undercurrent as I stand in the kitchen window watching him tighten his ass as he chops wood, shirtless, sweat pouring off his body.I'll run upstairs and masturbate, the entire time forcing myself to think of women while my thoughts drift back to Zion I won't be able to climax and I'll eventually go back downstairs, angry.Sometimes we will look across the table and catch each other's eyes, and in that second, anything is possible, but we both deny ourselves and go back to what we were doing.One day one of us will die, and the other will bury him outside the log cabin.Then he'll go inside, pen a brief missive to his departed friend, and commit suicide, never able to deal with life without his one true platonic love.

    He reminds me of Grandmama (Larry Johnson). He is undersized, but has a wide strong frame with tons of explosion at the rim. If he can work on his shooting, he will be a NBA star for sure.

    He has a great attitude and a presence that has all competitors thinking twice about driving the lane. I've never seen a players block or dunk just take the steam out of other teams. One thing other teams are starting to do is foul him before he can get down the court and dunk ’because it is such a game changing play I know that sounds weird but I go to every Duke game and when he dunks the team gets revived and the other team gets very disheartened. Almost like what the hell do we do with this guy another thing is he gets fouled but you can’t tell due to his upper body strength he fight through it Which drives Coach K crazy because a foul is a foul truly never seen anything like this kid all the haters saying if he’s going to be a flop or this or that he’s 18 let them enjoy playing at Duke and let them enjoy playing at the next level keep your opinions to yourself

    Lebron had a more reliable jump-shot as a rookie than this guy will ever have in his career. Not a fair comparison

      +Pangruel This doesn't mean he had a reliable jumpshot. Lol

    • Pangruel
      Pangruel 9 days ago

      +Geo Rockmann lol yes. Lebron was making threes of the dribble in his rookie season. I don't see Zion doing that EVER

  • Imopanemo
    Imopanemo 11 days ago

    I am not convinced yet in him being a franchise player. If he drops 40-60 pounds than by all means yes, but until then... Still probably worth the no 1 pick because of what he might become.

  • Killion Weaver
    Killion Weaver 11 days ago

    I dont think he would still continue to get taller cause his body is already developed. I mean when you still young and lift weights early it affects your growth spurth.

    Watched Lebron in high school. He was 6’5-6’6 at 17 and around 220 pds. Zion is 6’6 now and 280 pds with a high vertical. Uh freaking believable.

    KARLPAGLIACCI 22 days ago

    Zion has a wealth of athletic ability and talent. But the NBA has the greatest players night after night. One night he's going against KD, the next Lebron, the next Paul George, then next James Harden. This is night after night. These professionals have proven themselves and still put in the work to get better. Zion has the talent, but does he want to get better without putting in the work. This is not a knock on Zion, but those guys are great!

    He's kinda boring to watch. He's a beast of course, but aside from powering over guys, he doesn't have much game. He's basically a bully player.. the nba is more skill based then power style like when shaq played. He'll end up like a boring version of Dwight Howard.

    Zion would just need to get a jump shot and get lean. I would think loosing as much weight as he can while being stronger and fitter will help his body. Would be best on the Bulls.

  • Raw Powerlifting Strength

    looks soft... he should get a nutritionist.. get down to 265-270... improve conditioning/running... practice shooting 2-3 hours everyday xtra... and hopp on the steroids like lebron and the others in nba.. than he can actually be a great player and get a 20k contract in the years to follow... if he does not do this.. he will win the dunk contest and end up playing some years with a 1-2m contract and end up in europe. But the potential is there... to bad the coaches are ignorant and dont actually tell him to shoot more in practice or show more effort. its all about the "whoooohh" from the crown in the dunks/blocks.. that cant work in nba.. the players are to big, to strong, toooo fastttt and zion is about 1-2 inches to short... however if he can put up work ethic he will be a mini lebron
