They will still probably be beat by RJ Barrett single handedly.

He's an intriguing prospect that i'm starting to believe will be the next generational talent., Zion is mature, quick, strong, and can handle the ball pretty well for a guy built like a tank. I'd like to see him focus on running an offense and master pick'n rolls as a point guard, if he practices his 3's to an acceptable pro%, he will change the nba. He could already get to the hoop against most nba wings at will if he leans a shoulder into them, he's going to be an unguardable monster in a couple of years when players respect his jumper.
