    Zion is 6”7’ and 285. Only 1 player in the NBA weighs more than Zion. He’s the same size as Aaron Judge. Oh, and he has a 45-inch vertical and feet of a dancer... to compliment his solid court vision and passing.

    Zion closed out to prevent a 3... Nailed a deep Curry-like 3... this guy is a monster.

    RJ Barrett is a beast as well.

    If these 2 alone were the only guys in the draft it would be worth tanking.

    Anybody who would prefer to win 33 games and end up selecting 12th over getting a shot at Zion or RJ is insane.

    Duke is eating alive the #2 in the nation... effortlessly.
    Zion is a once in a generation talent. Even if we don’t get the 1st overall pick, we should trade up for this man.

    Barrett is nice too but he’s not Zion.

    I heard someone compare them to shaq and penny. Tbh that’s a perfect comparison when it comes to their dominance in the game they just played.

    We have a few chances once more to walk away with a stud this summer. How will we handle this gift?

    We’ll win 4 of our last 5, have our usual no luck in the lottery, and wind up with whichever top 10 prospect you guys hate the most.

    I remember Bagley had some great early season games last year and I was all over him as the number 1. This kid is 6'7", I agree with this guy before we go overboard and say this kid is the next Lebron.

    Kid isn’t just dunker. He has excellent court vision and good feet. He can shoot it too. He may be a tad raw but he’ll inprove. He may not be LeBron level great... but he won’t be a bust.

    Does this guy offer anything valid, as to why he thinks that? Or is he just throwing around an opinion based on nothing?

    Kentucky didn’t have people his height?

    BTW... only 1 current NBA player weighs more than Zion...

    The Cavs record are 1-10
    And the Suns & Wizards record are 2-8
    That's 3 teams in front of the Hawks, Bulls, and Mavs TANKING season !!!

    Yea I think the cavs are a lock for that first pick, they're not winning more than 10 games this year.

    Every other team you mentioned is gonna be close to the 30 win plateau (unless they trade their veteran/star players)

    I feel like our Knicks will be in the 25 - 30 win range. We'll have the 6th overall pick.

    I agree. I think 25 wins is the benchmark... win more than that and org failed in their tank mission. Of course, if this occurs bc the kids play well... then so be it.

    However, we’ll continue to see Fiz tinker with roster down stretch of games to encourage the loss.

    We would have a backcourt if Curry and Westbrook if we would’ve won 23 games (instead of 27) those seasons a decade ago.

    Anyway, the key is to finish in the 20-25 realm... after that, it’s all up to the ping pongs. Knicks have never jumped forward in the lottery since the Ewing... after 30 + years we are due.

    Remember when we got KP, we fell from 1 to 4 (bc we won last game then fell 2 slots in the lottery i think). We lost KAT but were saved from Okafir or Russell.

    Yes, CLE, ATL and others will be bad... but if we finish in the top 5 then we have a great shot to leap up to 1.... and, if not, a solid prospect will be there at 5-6.
