But Zion is a substantially more dominant player.

Seen & unseen.
Zion like Young has a 30% usage rate to Morants 25%, both do "look" more dominant. It's more than likely if Morant had a higher usage rate he'd look more dominant too but it would most likely work against his team game & winning. Reason Memphis have the 8th seed in the West with a roster expected to finish last & Young, not so much in the East.
Isaiah Thomas said it on the jump, I believe it was. He said, In todays NBA, if he were to take 30 shots a night, his game would be more dominant too but it was his job to get his teammates engaged & involved. Morant's control over the game & leadership. is a dominance, unseen. Where Zion is a clear physical force to anyone watching. How someone would weight the 2, IDK. What I can make claim to, is that Morant seems to be doing more with less, as I mentioned recently. He's a drive first PG, with less than ideal spacing around him, 160lbs soaking wet that has a team expected to finish last, sitting 8th seed.
Hawk fans making claim that his teammates are better than Youngs, is a testament to that unseen dominance.
