    Is Zion really that good ? Players who can't shoot in this era aren't really that great unless you are Giannis. Zion is short also.

    Well it isn't just about if he's short or not. His speed, strength and athleticism are out of the world. His defense is fantastic as well and for him to play at that level of intensity, it's already higher than most in the NBA.

    His jumpshot isn't broken, it's something that can be worked on; however most of the qualities he has now aren't something you just teach to a kid.

    Well Simmons is a similar case and he didn't develop into anything special. And by similar case I speak of how great of a prospect he was.

    NBA finals was the 2nd round of the Western conference and Houston choked. They couldn't perform under pressure. Steph, Klay and Draymond did.

    But I do have some faith in Milwaukee to push the Warriors. They're too similar to last year's Rockets.

    In Zion's defense, he has a superior work ethic. Ben Simmons didn't even try in college because he knew he was gonna be eligible for the NBA. You saw Zion developing his 3 point shot through his college season, so he'll develop it further down the line.

    The two are not even close to similar case.

    Perhaps how they get their points are similar in that they both score in transition and inside most frequently; however the biggest difference between Zion and Simmons is Zion is far superior athletically, strength, and is far superior in defense.

    Zion's intangibles like work ethic are far superior compared to Ben Simmons. Ben Simmons "Works" on his jumpshot but never uses it whereas Zion has a jumpshot. Albeit not the most beautiful stroke, he has shown that during his offtime he will put in a lot of time and effort to better it. For instance him prior to injury and when he came back it was clear that he had worked on his jumpshot a lot and he had gained confidence during his time off.

    Ben Simmons lacks that work ethic and doesn't seem to put in much effort to improve his game.

    You look at the way he plays can you really say that he's improved drastically or added a lot of moves to his arsenal? Not really.

    Well obviously it’s a gag account. But I’m glad to know that there is a lot of activity urging Zion to do the right thing!

    The Pelicans should just trade the first round pick. I'm sure whoever they trade for will be just as excited as these guys

    Zion should be thankful it wasn't the Grizzlies or Cavs. They're even worse franchises to be brought in

    The Bucks will go on a huge run in the second half. Will Toronto be able to withstand that run or not?

    I doubt the Bucks will go on a run the Raptors can't match. It's been a lot of back and forth
