This was a cold blooded comparison right here.
Just in case you couldn’t tell by his coverage in high school, the coverage from his one year at Duke, and the coverage throughout the NBA Draft — Zion Williamson is a pretty big deal. He is already being crowned as the next LeBron James to takeover the league with his sheer size and athleticism he displays nightly.
On Wednesday’s edition of ‘The Herd,’ Portland Trail Blazers big man Enes Kanter was asked about the hyped rookie and he did not mince any words when he compared Zion to Julius Randle and the only thing separating them is Zion having better jumping ability.
“I kind of feel like Zion is over-hyped. I feel like he is Julius Randle with ‘hops’. That’s what I believe. Some players are scared to say it but you know me I’m not scared to say anything.”
The first time Zion meets Enes at the rim will be epic.
