      No. We can start rating him once he actually plays a game in the NBA.

                Does Draymond Green also not have a set shot? He’s 6’7 and he’s not really a 2 but if draymond can lock up these superstars at the 3 and 4 I’m pretty sure Zion can do the same, Zion is on another level in athleticism and he’s bigger

                                Lol it’s so obvious why Shannon Sharpe hates on Zion and keeps on doubting him. He clearly feels threatened by him, since he’s the president of the LeBron fan club. He knows Zion is the next LeBron but might be tougher mentally

                                    See this is way I agree with Kanter that Zion is overhyped, and cause I know Dame people might not know the different I’m not saying Overrated, Overhyped two different things.

                                        Remember 18 months ago Jalen Brown ...."Is Coming" on the verge ...Celtics still waiting he dunked on Greek Freak 2x that was the only thing he did that series.

                                          No Jump shot is a problem can't dunk \layup all baskets when it really matters just ask Greek Freak.

                                            In this segment Skip has obviously lost his understanding the basics of English...and of reality for that matter. How can a player who has not played in the NBA be rated ANYWHERE in the NBA hierarchy?

                                                  I take you skip over Stephen a Smith...Oh and if skip bayless was the starting point guard of the knicks....they be in the playoffs 😂😂

                                                      First time I agree with Skip lol

                                                        Seven years from now, Skip is going to hate Zion ,just like he did with LeBron, for leaving the Pelicans after failing to achieve something noteable, other than destroying rims.

                                                            Umm he actually did good his rookie season. 10 pts. 7 assts 7rebs 1blks 2stl. U know who else did that.... Jason Kidd 94-95 and he got rookie of the year.

                                                            @LeVelle Coley work ethic vs talent and skills is a difference. Embiid diet and work ethic had been questioned this series also. LeBron didn't make the playoffs his 1st year in a weaker east in 2004. Btw Kobe 1st two seasons was decent. Bruh kd now? How about kd season 2 vs ben Simmons season 2. Besides shooting Simmons is better......hey I see u dodging that point about magic Johnson shooting on film 🤔😲🙄😏

                                                            stoic romulan make the playoffs?? Lmao it’s the east, put KD on the Knicks they will make 5-6 seed easy. And Embiid is their most important player get it right. Simmons is lazy dude. He played lazy in the Toronto series. The only great game he had the entire playoffs is the nets game he dropped 31 😂 and Dudley has to set him off for that. Just stop. Zion is going to be good but not great I can assure u that cuz his ego is too big. He’s going to be another loyalist. U can tell he wanted the Knicks.

U tripping.....u can't find a 5 career highlight of magic shooting a jumper. Not a baby hook a real jump shot beyond 20 ft. And he turned out find. Remember 76ers ain't make the playoffs without him. 🤔

Shaq like power with Shawn Kemp hops with LeBron type speed. He likes contact. Dude ain't soft. He gets boards. Plus he plays defense
