  1. He plays with such pose, and fierce play. He’s got a chip on his shoulder with his athleticism, shooting, defense, playmaking, scoring. This kid has it all. He’s going to be a Future All-Star and All-NBA Team Member. Memphis got a young stud but I wouldn’t be surprised if New Orleans takes him #1.

  2. His landing off of some of these dunks is concerning. I would hate to see him be plagued by injuries for most of his career because he didn't make a habit of landing properly.

  3. Anyone who says " I wish I could take the fame away from it but I can't… I just wanna play the greatest game in the 🌎 on the highest level" is our guy… Go Grizz. Him with J3, JV, Dillion Brooks, Delon Wright, & Kyle Anderson… We good. Just please sign the right coach.

  4. No disrespect but f*ck Zion!! I would trade the #1 pick if I am the Pelicans for the #2 pick and the Grizzlies first round pick next year. Now I have Holiday and this Kid in the backcourt along with AD and Randle up front. Nice!!! Julius Randle is a better pro than Zion will be for the next few years until he gets older. Zion may have all the hype and highlight dunks but when it comes to playoff basketball Randle will produce down low by scoring or getting to the line. Zion is gonna be special but in the playoffs he may be neutralized. Randle is a crafty lefty that is gonna score and rebound regardless of the defense…..the man just plays hard. The Lakers screwed up trading him…..and big Z.

  5. It seems like the NBA is shifting from shorter, stronger, bull-dog type point guards (i.e. CP, Kemba, Lillard, Russ) to longer and lankier types like Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, John Wall, Lonzo Ball, D'aaron Fox, and Malcom Brogdon.
