Since they have the 3 of the top 5 prospects of the upcoming draft, we should probably dedicate a thread to watching them

118-84 win vs 2 ranked Kentucky tonight


Duke is legit and their players are ballers


Zions build looks like a football player.

If they’re projected that high, Sacramento has to get lucky in the lottery... might not be worth the time

Barkley 2.0 would look nice in green.

Only playing Army, but Zion looking dominant.  He made his first 9 shots.  His only miss of the first half was a buzzer beating 3.

That’s a ridiculous stat line.

Zion had 21 points on 10-12 shooting tonight.  Through 3 games, he's averaging 25.3 points on 82% shooting.  Not bad.

There was one dunk early on - an alleyoop - where Zion's head was slightly ABOVE the rim...

Just crazy talent and athleticism from this dude.

Unicorn in the making...kid is what? 280 pounds?? 6'6"....who in the world is going to be crazy enough to take a charge from him?

He's going to put some poor soul in the 3rd row..

You'd probably stand a better shot at standing in front of a train.

Big time gifts with Zion.

We somehow get this kid and we'll have Little Mountain and Mount Zion.

Zion is a legit freak.

The alley had absolutely ridiculous height.

And his “LeBron” dunk....was cocked back even further than the LeBron comp they showed.

When he reaches his athletic prime, he’s gonna be a marvel.

Any team who doesn’t take him first is insane. Not a knock on his teammates Barrett and Reddish, but he’s too special an athlete to pass up.

We may have to wait awhile for that since Stevens is reluctant to give rookies much playing time.   ;)

Isn't this the case with all rookies?

People keep saying these things about Zion, and he keeps dominating.

Meh, his athleticism is generational. Look at guys like Giannis and Westbrook, two other athletic freaks. They aren’t the most talented basketball players, they are just so athletic they can still dominate. And I think his athleticism clearly trumps theirs, along with seemingly unparalleled power.

His floor is very, very high imo. If he puts in the work and wants to be great, he’s going to be special.
