Funny, that's exactly what I thought of Barrett and felt Zion was the one more often in control.

LMAO I find it funny that both of you have this out of control thing in your heads lol. When your driving to the basketball **** is going to happen.

To me it's about finishing the play. Whether its a pass or layup.

And if we're talking NBA. Yeah these guys are going to be even better. In a iso heavy league.

via GIPHY



And this pass. I can't tell you how many times I've seen young guys get charges in this situation becaus they feel the need to jump to make this pass.

Re: NBA Draft 2019

I don't have time to find the clips but there were several plays where Barrett drove into traffic and threw up an awkward shot that had no chance of going in.

I'll find them for you. I've broken their whole games last night. Every shot and turnover. Give me a few.

Re: NBA Draft 2019

I haven't even had a chance to really collect my thoughts on Barrett and Reddish because I was so blown away by Zion. He looked better against Kentucky than he did against the midgets he faced in high school. I don't think I could have been more impressed with his debut.

Kentucky's bigs looked terrified of him though. Maybe with good reason lol. I still need to see him against someone who doesn't care that he's a man amongst boys because they are also men. I'm not going to have a good feel on him until there is more to go by. Athletically speaking, he's one of a kind. Could you imagine if he was maybe 3 inches taller.

I can't help but think that he's just going to absolutely feast on college competition. Anyone that can come close to matching his strength will probably be at a severe speed/quickness disadvantage and anybody that can keep up with him will likely be weak enough that he can overpower them. I'll be curious to see how this team does against the Syracuse zone, but this feels like a team that has the potential to pretty much run through the competition this year, and Zion will be the biggest reason why IMO.

To be honest there aren't that many players in the NBA who'll fit the bill. Draymond, who's 50 lbs lighter, bullies plenty of people. Julius Randle is 30 lbs lighter and a bully. NBA guys may not be afraid of him (I don't necessarily that UK's bigs were afraid of him, especially Reid Travis) but not many modern NBA guys have the physical profile to deal with Zion.
