    He's right y'all. Charles Barkley or really more like Karl Malone with 'Nique's bounce. Tell me that wouldn't scare you.

    When u look at the height and weight factors, he's like an evolved version of Barkley. At Auburn, Chuck's weight was around the 270 mark at times. Chuck was a freak athlete in that 6'5 to 6'6 area. He was so athletic he played bigger than his height at the PF. BUT at the same time he could play the SF spot because his had the handles, passing, athletic ability, etc. of the great wing players. So for me, its EASY TO SEE Zion is more in that Barkley mold. I see the Larry Johnson comparisons as well. By LJ NEVER hovered around the 300 pound mark like Zion and Barkley. LF was always a chiseled 250 pounds. Barkley was like a PF, SF, and point forward all in one package. At one time, Barkley LEGIT was arguably the best scoring, passing, and rebounding PF in the league at the same time. Only guys like MJ, Bird, Bron, Magic, etc. dominate their position in the same type of fashion. It will be interesting to see IF Zion is the total package like those guys in terms of scoring-passing-rebounding their position.

    @Jay Williams. I was discussing this with my son who is 13, about Zion being a combination of 3 players. I showed him highlights of Charles Barkley, Dominique Wilkins and also included some of James Harden's game. Could be the left-handed playing a factor, but he does similiar moves when he side steps defenders to get to the rim, and also has used the Euro Step to avoid the defenders while driving. Let me know your thoughts.

    On the money (i.e. Zillions).

  • Jake McCoy is right but I am going to add this

    That combo is about right. However, after Zion gets a consistent outside jumper, we are going to have to say Barkley and somebody else.

    Why yall talking about cam or RJ. Yes they good but Zion is just different. You know that and they know that. Why u think they talk about him more than the other players. Keep in mind he was in foul trouble in the game so he had to come out and still had 28. Cmon now Zion is just a once in a generation talent. U got to pick that guy #1DraftPick

    Zion is better player. Duke was 28 + when Zion was on the floor, only five plus when he wasn't on the floor. Barrett played 10 more minutes put up 20 more shots to make 5 more points. Zion is the better pick the better player

    • powerboatguy
      powerboatguy Il y a 5 mois

      Dominique never could jump on the run, all of his dunks were where he stopped, then jumped off of both legs., Charles is 2 or three inches shorter. Barkley listed at 6'6" is about 6'4" in real life. Barkley cannot get that high on the run, but had some serious hop jumping straight up-vertical.

    Awesome comparison and spot on about Zion. Agility and powerful hips of Barkley with explosiveness of Dominique. Zion has higher potential, Top 20 MVP talent. RJB is all star but I don't see MVP level. If Zion learns some moves and counter moves, and improves mid range jumper he would be unstoppable like Benard King.

    Don't forget to include KD in comparisons for Williamson with that long reach and strong drive toward the basket, but I still think it is fair to not draw any comparisons yet for him as he seems to be something else entirely, so I am very intrigued by his seemingly limitless potential as a player.

He should just work on his jump shot and play making while in college and save the real physical play for Oct 2019
