So on a break by himself in a blowout, he brings out the tricks.  the crowd obviously loved it, but on some level isn't disrespectful to Clemson to do that.  I'm torn as I really don't know what to think. 

Thoughts?

He's going to hurt some poor souls that try to block his dunks in the NBA.

Physicality-wise not many Bigs will be able to stop his drives.

Dunk stoppers? Embiid...Jerome Allen from BKN...maybe Whiteside? Steve Adams?

Gobert and Capela - while great shot blockers - lack the strength to stop his dunks.

Showboat dunk. Donít like it. Hope the next one he tries clangs off the back of the rim.

Iím with Tommy Heinsohn. (Yeah, I know, Zion will be better than Davis. Still.)

 Come on Moranis. What do you think of Beethoven showing off? Or Einstein Or Tesla. Or Jordan what a show off.

 If you had that ability would you lay it up soft. I hope not.

How does he compare to Julius Randle?

Did not watch a lot of Julius in college. Zion is coming in with a LOT of hype, though.

Haven't we seen Brown and Tatum do some stuff on breakaway dunks? Who cares. Dunk away. You don't like it and think it disrespectful, then stop it from happening.

Sports are supposed to also be fun, in addition to being competitive.

People are talking about the dunk. It adds to Zionís hype, which in turn will increase his endorsement deals.

Now all the kid needs to do is break a backboard.

My opinion?

2 points and some street cred.

Moving on. :)

Basketball is entertainment.  It doesn't get a whole lot more entertaining on a basketball floor than watching him do the things he does athletically.

Is that a hard dunk to do? I mean itís rare but is it athletically difficult for nba players? It doesnít seem that hard but maybe itís decievingly hard
