Will Zion Williamson Be An NBA Bust?
Very few players at 6 foot 8 and 280 pounds would possess Zion Williamson's athletic gifts.
However Williamson has some real question marks that few are talking about.
At 6"8' Zion is undersized for the PF position. However you could argue his physical stature lends some compensation for this.
Zion is a terrible jumpshooter currently shooting 25% at Duke and even worse in highschool.
He lacks the advanced handle to take G's and Wing's off the dribble from the perimeter meaning his only offensive advantage is against other bigs who already have a height advantage.
Zion has a fairly basic handle lacking in advanced dribble moves. He won't be able to bully defenders at the next level.
Against Auburn and Gonzaga Zion struggled at times against NBA caliber length and pro level talent.
In the NBA Zion Williamson will struggle to live up to his physical gifts unless he shows substantial growth in skill.
I see Zion Williamson as a waste of a top 5 pick and likely only a rotational bench scorer in the NBA.
Without a high level of growth I think there is a real chance Williamson doesn't finish his rookie contract.
We are confident Zion Williamson will be a bust. Are you?
