  • ESPN NBA Draft analyst Mike Schmitz reflects on Zion Williamson’s shooting game, in which he said being a non-shooter in high school is his “biggest weakness.” Schmitz also says Zion shooting 3-of-4 3-pointers in Tuesday's game vs. Wake Forest is "a step in the right direction."

    We shit on all these players that can’t shoot Ben Simmons etc why are we acting like he isn’t going to be liability in all that space with no shoot. Literally all the baskets getting scored now are at the rim and at the three. With no post moves or shoot I don’t see him being the LBJ lol

    He's a shorter Blake Griffin. Look up their college stats and playing style they're practically the same. Explosive highlight reel dunkers that can't shoot. Blake obviously was the better rebounder due to height advantage. The ppl comparing him to GOATs just cus of his vertical need to chill

    The greek cant shoot either and some not so smart people think hes the mvp.
    But if you look at zion shooting its not like he has that lonzo crap form. His shot isnt broken and could/should be able to improve it if he puts the work in. I dont think thats out of the realm of possibility

      Daniel Beales not just that giannis has an extremely long wingspan along with hops. 3 inches is also a big difference.

    • Daniel Beales
      Daniel Beales 4 months ago

      TYuri So your saying the 3 extra inches makes Giannis exempt from the same criticism. As opposed to both their abilities to get to the basket at will making high percentage shots?

    • Yu3ri
      Yu3ri 4 months ago +3

      Zion is 6’7 and Giannis is 7’0. If you are 7’0 you kinda don’t need to have a great jumper you can just be deadly in the post game and slash to the basket. Even if Zion has great hops, he isn’t that tall. 6’7 isn’t tall enough to grab boards over centers and power forwards. Also Zion’s shooting form is literal eye cancer and it’s too slow.

  • Robert Stanley

  • Recency Bias Radio
    Recency Bias Radio 4 months ago +2

    I think Zion will be a bust & I don't care if im in the minority on this. Zion has to play PF on the next level to reach his potential...but he can't shoot & his IQ is leaps & bounds behind Draymond Green's in college.
    But we'll see. I just hope the Bulls don't draft him. Markannen isnt a Center & Wendell Carter needs minutes next year. Go get Barrett. He's more of a sure thing.

      Cameron 777 3 months ago +1

      Recency Bias Radio exactly. I dont get all the Zion hype. He’s athletic and he can dunk, but thats it. He’s barely 6’7 so he isnt tall enough to match up with other PFs and centers. He’s almost 300 pounds as a teenager, so he has to lose a ton of weight if he wants to last long in the nba. He also needs a jumpshot. There’s no way he can live up to the hype if he’s only shooting 25% from 3.

But your right he plays defense but that point is completely irrelevant to the topic.

  • Event Horizon Productions

    Percentages for college players doesn't mean anything, they're given a solid 3 to 5 years to develop into very adequate shooters from the time they're drafted. What matters is the technique, and Zion does not have a good stroke so he's in bigger trouble in that area than would be preferable for such a hyped up player.

RJ isn't superstar material either, but his skills transfer a lot easier to the NBA than Zion, who won't be able to drive to the hoop so easily.

    Zion reminds me of a more explosive young charles barkley when he 1st came into the league. CB34 was 6'4" 250-260 with a 37-38" vertical..which was unheard of for a guy of his size. Zion is in that same similar build area but more explosive. CB34 had solid handle for a big man and could hit jumpers and expanded it to the 3 point line in the middle of his career. Zion is something special.

      Charles Barkley was closer if not at 300 pounds though. When he got to the Sixers Moses Malone and Dr. Jay made him get in shape. He dropped down to 265 - 270 which was what he played at for the rest of his career. Zion way more explosive and just as powerful as Chuck was. Once Zion goes pro, he should play around 265.

      1000? So like if Ben Simmons averages a double double Zion is gonna average a 10,000 10,000th? Coool! U must be an NBA analyst.

      Lonzo is a lot better than Zion, and so is Ben Simmons. Ben Simmons is a Zion that can rebound and is 6’10

      Completely different players.

      JULIUS RANDLE (Typical NBA PF):

      Exclusively left-handed.

      Limited handles.

      Often has tunnel vision.

      Volume scorer.

      Poor defensive instincts

      Only a +2 wingspan.


      ZION WILLIAMSON (Atypical BB player):

      Outlier athlete; insanely explosive leaping ability, Pops off the ground quickly off one or two feet ... Doesn’t need a gather to jump, can explode from a standstill

      Quick first step

      Shoots efficiently from the floor.

      Unselfish and can pass on the move

      Good tools, athleticism, and anticipation/timing as a defender on and off the ball.

      An underrated BB IQ.

      a +5 wingspan

      The value of ZION cannot be filled by anyone. He impacts the GMAE not in the box score.

      +Sleazy Cleve I ain't no damn NBA scout nigga 😂😂😂. On the real tho zion is overrated he's a third option at best he's not a player that can lead a franchise period. He's just another Blake Griffin nothing more nothing less. " Zion will win multiple championships and be a HOF player one day
      ." 😭😭😭 Can the nigga at least when the NCCA championship? lmao.

      +SK we're all making money, homie, not just you so quit trying to stunt like you're someone special. And no, no you're not a Scout. Sorry, nobody here is buying that. You're a liar, straight up. I agree Doncic will probably be the better overall player, but Zion will for sure be right there with him. They have two totally different play styles but they could be the next magic n bird. One is just as good as the other. But Zion will win multiple championships and be a HOF player one day

      +CPGoat #3 CPGoat #3 bruh, idk why you're talking about. I don't know you and vice versa, so idk why you say I'm a hype beast or year after year I hype kids up. Zion isn't like the rest of these kids that have come out (Wiggins, Lonzo, Fultz, Jabari, KAT), Hes already light-years better than all those kids and is a once in a lifetime talent like magic, bird, MJ, Kareem, Hakeem, Shaq, Kobe, and the goat LeBron. and yes, he has the rare gift of great court vision like Magic, Bron, and Doncic. Sure he's not as good as magic in his prime yet, but he will be when it's all said n done. The dude is a phenomenal passer, maybe if you watched him more instead of hating you'd see that

      Ben Simmons is running point so having a 3 ball isn't necessary, but he does need to get a jumpshot down. Magic only made 16 3's in his first 4 years combined but he had his hook and a decent jumper. Two completely different players filling completely different roles.
