STOP comparing Zion to any other athlete. He is his own person, comparing sets limits! Z is limitless, leave him be!

They. Are not the best shooters, but their defense is frightening! And their will to win is hypnotic.

Espn will never show Tennessee any love. It's some bull shit. Watch them play. They are grinding and balling and playing defense. Now are the number one team in the country and the only loss was an overtime loss to Kansas when they were number one. Where is the love?

Zion if you are reading this, don’t follow Lebron you already have the physicality that’s only what Lebron have, go ask Kobe for training, perfection to foot steps and shooting, work ethic, and killer instinct is what you can improve.

"like UCONN women's basketball" really? Did you see the smug look on her face when she suggested/asked the feminist comment/question? Does Rose secretly own ESPN? Who does she get screwed by to keep this job? ESPN should be rotating and cycling through moderators as do Undisputed.

As far as athleticism n physical build....zion williamson is evolution of an basketball athlete......however he def isn't the best player on duke.... but if he drops that weight ( hard on knees nba 80 game seasons) and continues to improve.....he will be the next greatest....mj...kobe...lebron....zion

NCAA biggest hypocrite organization there is. 1 and done rule is horrible. Even more deplorable is the rule that a kid cant return to his college team if he declares for the draft and then changes his mind. Who the HELL came up with that?! How on earth does that benefit the student athlete?! Oh and how bout players who have to redshirt a year if they want to transfer schools for whatever reason?! Whats the sense in that? Who makes up these rules? A small group of rich folks whose only interest is for the schools and the NCAA to maintain control over the student athletes, while keeping that money coming in. Honestly its sickening when you think about it.

+RedGotSauce 24 that makes sense. They followed him. Another strange occurrence, Cal didn't tell in the best PG. The toughest part is that I feel UK has no shot this year... And we're just getting started. Gonna be a long year knowing #9 ain't coming. 😠

Duke is not winning the national title mark my words. All I saw was a bunch of talented freshman running up and down with no defense on both sides. When they run into those so call mid majors with 4year starters that are gym rats in the tournament watch what happens

David Jackson ur spot on ! But Zion has slightly better Handles, meanwhile kemp was more chiseled (before he got fat) coming out. Great comp tho! Zion=kemp, Barkley and a little Julius Randle all rolled into one.
