                Zion is simply not LeBron, it's not even his style, I love the comparisons to Barkley and Malone

                        There is a fantastic comparison of this player. LeBron is not the one only in Hype is where this should be compared. The player is Larry Johnson 100.

                            Its weird hearing Skip say it's not fair to compare them when skip literally made his career off of comparing Lebron to MJ.. lol wasn't too concerned with what's fair when it was making you millions huh Skkkiiiiipppp?

                                  I bet even zion himself won't compare himself to lebron. Lebron is the only lebron i'm not a lebron fan but imagine if there was social media back then ?

                                    Mannnnn I’m still of the opinion that we’ve had a Jordon, we’ve had a Kobe, we’ve got a Lebron still rn... let’s just give it time and let Zion be Zion. If Zion becomes one of the greats... awesome. But he doesn’t need to be anyone else. He’s Zion. Let’s leave it as that aye.

                                          I hate how every Rookie that’s an Athletic Forward always gets compared to Lebron. Like for real. Wiggins was supposed to be the “Next LeBron” or the “Next Jordan” and look where he is now.

                                          Let these guys make a name for themselves. There will never be a “Next (Insert HoF level Player)” ever.

                                              Skip likes Lebron he just don’t like Lebron mentioned with MJ.

                                                @Miroslav Sunjkic The Pencil Maestro a little dramatic, if you've ever watched him you know he actually can pass on an elite level. HE scores however he wants and rebounding just comes he's big so it'd be surprising if he didn't. stat padding is what volume scorers do like westbrook and harden because they don't have the skill to make passes lebron does but they have to have the bal so they're going to be the one to make the passes even if they aren't the best to do it.

                                                Skip is a secret Lebron apologist. Very few people actually criticize Lebron for what he is - an overrated, statpadding ballhog.

                                                      Zion is much skilled than Lebron right now in my opinion!! His footwork is better, shot is better, handles are better and overall skills are better.

                                                          Zion is looking a lot like a future most unstoppable player in the NBA. For him scoring against Gobert isn’t a big deal and Gobert is one of the best if not the best defensive big in the game. That says something. Also his balance, decisions, movement is already at a pretty good level. If he stays healthy - he is top 10 in the league in like 3 years. He will be better than almost anybody in the history if he continues to grow as a player and avoids injuries.
