Zion looks awesome
Definitely looks like the freak we all saw at Duke. I still have concerns about his weight, but who knows.

League pass might be a solid option this year with so many up & coming teams, and some semblance of competitive balance.

The Nets have a squad. This is without KD and Wilson Chandler too.

Hot Take:
Zion is the most unstoppable force we have ever seen.
Top 10 of all time barring injuries.

I never liked RJ Barrett

Oh, was it Reddish that you liked over Zion? can't remember.

You have to be crazy either way.

RJ Barrett may end up putting numbers, but he is such a boring, inefficient player. He may get the benefit of the whistle though to help his percentages because it's the NBA. Happy that we didn't get a chance to draft him over Darius. What a trap. De'Andre Hunter is going to be better than him too.

I expect Barrett to follow a similar career trajectory as Evan Turner.

Zion predictions:

ROTY
All-Star in 1st season
Face of NBA when Bron retires (Though I can see Bron playing until 40)
Ends up in NY after his rookie contract ala Shaq to LAL.

I’d definitely be worried about his weight. He’s listed at 6’7” 284. With the way he plays, that’s a lot of impact on the joints on a nightly basis. He could stand to drop 15 pounds and would probably be more explosive.

It wouldn’t shock me to see him have an incredible first few years only to have his weight and injuries drag him down.
