    Zion is the best prospect I’ve seen since Lebron honestly, I’ve never seen a player that’s 270 with this quickness, handle, passing or hops ever, and he has a decent jumper. Oh my lord. How is RJ Barrett ranked higher than him?

    Rj is on another level. I mean zion is great man but rj is something more than great

      Miguel Garcia LoveYourz I’m a Zion fanboy but you are 100% right. Zion’s Star shines so bright it’s hard to be objective sometimes, but if you can look past that it’s obvious that RJ is just the clear, run-away #1 pick. Zion is the clear, run-away #2 pick also, but RJ is just by far the best prospect available next year.

    duke vs hawks, who’s gonna win? lol

    • Common Sense says:

      If Duke is at home Duke wins, Don’t listen to people who say a good college basketball team can’t beat a NBA team this is not football, The best HIGH SCHOOL players use to get drafted and could compete but it’s out the realm of a great college team like Duke beating the Atlanta Hawks?

  5. Sports Sidelined says:

    Lol Duke literally has the Best 3 players in the Class, a top 5 PG in the NCAA, and arguably the best coach ever. Don’t act like Kentucky isn’t a good team, Duke is just unstoppable

  6. J Alves says:

    Zion will be a Celtic and that’s the scariest thing ever for the NBA

  7. kingdomdominionalc says:

    Zion = Dominique Wilkins + Larry Johnson

    • Fuck Politics says:

      +Daniel B They play Nov. 13. The state farm classic is a double header. MSU and UK play Nov. 13 and Duke and KU play after. Y’all don’t understand how the beginning of college basketball season work do y’all? Only come around in March and now that Zion is in college y’all are gonna be paying attention all year. Enjoy it college basketball is amazing. The refs actually let them play hard.

  12. taha Siddiqui says:

    Comparing RJ Barret to Jalen Rose is an insult to RJ

  13. Todd Michaelsen says:

    RJ reminds me of D. Wade (but taller and lefty) and Zion reminds me of……The Hulk. 😳

  14. mack diddy says:

  17. Josh Lampani says:

  18. Jordan Davis says:
