Zion’s body type is one that can be a defensive beast in college but would be a weaker one in the NBA.

What he can really contribute now is efficiency on offense.

I can’t see the Mavericks getting a win against the Clippers. Blazers will likely provide the Lakers more of a challenge than the Mavs on the Clips.

Portland looks kinda scary. Hope they make it in the playoffs

I mean if he cannot solve his weight issues you would want to avoid him chasing the wings in the perimeter, which would mean having to make him your primary paint defender.

If his weight compromises his athleticism Zion doesn’t have the length to become a good rim protector. His wingspan is 6’10 at best versus the 7’3 of an average Center.

I've always said that if Zion can't develop into a wing it really limits his ceiling. Right now he's looking more and more like a small ball 5 and that would be a deeply disappointing.

Hmmmmm... Raps got a 10-0 start on the Lakers.

Is the 5-out offense really the Lakers' Achilles heel?

A couple weeks ago he was looking ripped. Now he looks fatter than ever. He might be a small ball 5 now but can’t protect the rim, so he’s kinda screwed
