Hmm, those numbers have Zion destroying Ja. Ja shows up as a pretty average player in the stats--17/4/7 on average efficiency and weak defensive numbers (plus an assist:TO that's barely above 2:1)--while Zion's strengths are way above average. 23/7/2 on terrific efficiency is the much better stat line, especially because there are a few things that are elite or near it--which by definition are rare commodities and thus much more valuable than anything average. And all the advanced stats are in Zion's favor, sometimes drastically: he crushes him in BPM, showing up as a top-30 guy while Ja is down around 100, his net rating is 6 pts higher, like 70% better in win shares per minute. The only thing than Ja wins here is the stats that count on how many games+total minutes you've played, otherwise this is a straight flush for Zion.
