Gordon is an underrated player in my opinion, but he's not a player that is a first or second option on a team trying to win a championship. Zion is shorter too, and in my opinion, Aaron Gordon is the superior defender. Really a very underrated defender too. Still a good player, not a star. Might win a dunk contest.
I agree. I think the comparison to Barkley is crazy. His style of play offensively (minus the dunks and athletic plays) reminds me of Julius Randle (a poor man version). Don't get me wrong, I love the passion, attitude, and energy that Zion brings but I don't think his game will transition well mainly because he relies a lot on his athleticism and size to bully college kids around. But his teammate though, RJ Barrett, is my no. 1 choice. His athleticism, speed and ability to take the defender off the dribble has impressed me the most.
The funny thing is, of the trio of Zion, Barrett and Reddish, I think Reddish will be the better player in the long run of the three despite not getting the same hype like Zion and Barrett. This kid shows a lot of composure, better shot selection and does all the little things.
