Last but definitely not least, LeBron James. The only player who can match Zion Williamson in terms of the hype. These two players have completely different playing style. However, the hype train that never stopped with LeBron since he was in high school is very similar to the potential hype that Zion, the number one overall pick, has. At the same age, LeBron was way ahead of Zion in terms of his passing abilities. Zion and LeBron is the least comparable amongst the other four but in terms of hype, LeBron is the only player to compare.
Enough comparison, let’s take a look at Zion’s first season in the NBA. In the 19 games that he played, he averaged 29.7 minutes, 23.6 points, 6.8 rebounds, 2,2 assists and 0.5 blocks per game. These numbers are actually amazing despite the fact that he was ruled out for 6 to 8 weeks due to a torn right meniscus. On his return game after injury, Zion scored 22 points (8-11), 4 three-pointers, 7 rebounds and 3 assists in just 18 minutes on the court. This made him the first player in the NBA history to have 20+ points, 7+ rebounds and 4+ threes made in under 20 minutes of game time in any regular-season game. This is definitely one of the many records he would set in the NBA history. Make sure to keep your eyes on this rookie as he is a force to be reckoned with.
