CE, who the heck is zion williamson, why should folks on cb care, what is "ig", and why is pierce speaking out on him?

if you would provide some more substance the thread would be better off and generate more discussion.

Thanks.

He is the #2 ranked senior in the HS class. And I agree with Pierce because in the one game I saw it was all attack and never a thought to shoot it.

#1 or 2 ranked player in 2019 draft
 Very overhyped player for his explosive dunks. Zion Doesn't seem to have any jumper. He mostly plays bullyball (like Julius Randle did in high school)

Celtics might take a closer look  if the laker pick becomes a 2019 kings/sixer pick.

I am reserving all judgements on Williamson til I can see about 4 more games. Plus I need to see some things change with his body before I make any type of real statement about him potentially at the next level. That was not the case for Brown or Tatum.

I've been unimpressed with what I've seen. He's a freak athlete and has one of the most ridiculous frames I've ever seen, but he can't dribble or shoot, which is not ideal.

So, he is the second coming of Kendrick brown?

Yeah, his jumper is awful. Looks like no one has ever worked with him on it. Still 2 years from being drafted, he might come along. He's a phenomenal athlete for a kid being that big.

I don't have the belief that he can develop one in 2 years. Maybe but I seriously doubt it. Especially with his obsession to dunk every posession
