Alright, so this kid is displaying Kyrie body control in a 300 lbs body with prime Blake Griffin athleticism.
His vision is better than a lot of guards and he can get to the rim at will because he's stronger than everybody with above average ball security (this surprised me)..
Only suspect thing is his perimeter shooting but we knew that ahead of time.
What are some other critiques that you guys see that could potentially hinder him going forward ?
Oh, he's not going to be a bust, but given expectation he could underwhelm relative to them.
We know nobody is looking forward to getting in his way on the floor, and even in the regular season - we're going to see a whole lot of "ole defense"; but let's see what happens when grown men actually try and how he adapts - how they adapt.
Once upon a time it seemed LeBron was good for 12+ ppg just for showing up and being big/fast/strong/bouncy. Zion could be like that too, but if he's forced to the perimeter without proper spacing he may struggle to fill in those other points; whereas James could attack the rim relentlessly with the ball in his hands and either draw a double team, draw a foul, or get to the rim.
If so ... will Zion start working on post moves? Will the Pels get him in the ball in spots he can make a quick move and get to the rim?
