  • Zion ever be the best player in the world?

  • The answer is yes.

  • I mean, we're asking, What is his ceiling right?

  • What's his potential?

  • Yeah, he like a lot of players.

  • You could look at that.

  • That player will never be the best player in the world.

  • You can eliminate that even after a season, even when they're 19 years old.

  • You can't do that with Zion Williamson.

  • The man average.

  • What was it?

  • 22 8?

  • Something that is a 19 year old in the N B A.

  • You know, like he has a little wiggle to his game to for a dude that size and a little touch in terms of his shooting for a guy that size and his age.

  • The only question was I in his health, The floor for Zion.

  • The floor is high level all star.

  • So if that's the floor, you tell me the ceiling is an M.

  • V.

  • P isn't best player on earth.

  • Look, here's the problem.

  • When people look at Zion, there's never been anyone like him, so he doesn't look like what's come before.

  • And we have a tendency to typecast in our mind, right?

  • This guy like, what do we look for?

  • A lanky to weigh wing?

  • That guy could be the best player in the world, just like once upon a time, a back to the basket center who protected the rim and could score and grab rebounds.

  • That guy used to be the best player in the world.

  • Jordan.

  • So then we look for Kobe and LeBron is like a hybrid between Magic and Jordan, and that's the guy we're looking for.

  • But the next guy might not look like the last guy.

  • Zion's not built like a long, lanky defender.

  • He doesn't have the height of, ah, back to the basket, center shot blocker.

  • But what can't he do?

  • The two just turned 20 30 years old, and he's already all star level.

  • Yes, he could be the best player in the world one day.

  • Well, Max, I have to respectfully disagree, because I like Zion.

  • I think he's box office.

  • And just because your box office doesn't mean that you have that you're gonna be the best player in the world are that you are the best player in the world, just that you're exciting to watch.

  • And here's the reason why It's a lot of guys out there that are under the age of 30 even under the age of 25 that that is in heavy competition for being the face of the N B A and being the best player in the world.

  • You have guys like Tom Moran, who is in science class, who want Rookie of the Year, who just dropped 40 plus last night.

  • You have guys like guy like Joe L and B.

  • Yokich.

  • You have.

  • You have So Tatum, you have So you honest, you have Anthony Davis.

  • You have so many other guys out there that are ahead of Zion, in my opinion.

  • And to be honest, Zion is not even the best player on the Pelicans right now is Brandon Ingram.

  • Brandon Ingram Last night, 24 points, 11 rebounds and nine assists, just dominating.

  • Just stop it.

  • First time All Star.

  • Most improved.

  • The sky's the limit for him.

  • For him.

  • I heard it from multiple guys that played with him.

  • You talk to LeBron James, Ray, John Rondo, all these guys raised on how good Brandon Ingram is and how great he could be.

  • So Zion is not even the best player on this team right now, let alone talk about being the best player in the league, and I get it right.

  • He's something that we've never seen before.

  • He don't have the long lengthy, you know.

  • He's not 6 10, He's not cut up.

  • He's sort.

  • He's kind of stubby.

  • He has a He has a different type of bill, but he gets the job done.

  • But four is being the best player in the league.

  • No, I don't see it, Max.

  • Not at all.

  • Not the problem.

  • What you're saying is, you know the problem with what you're saying is you're sleeping on his age.

  • It's not.

  • It's not in terms of like right.

  • It's not a but first of all, you're talking.

  • He doesn't bomb from three.

  • He doesn't.

  • He's not 7 ft tall.

  • He's not a point guard.

  • He's not.

  • Ah, Wing.

  • That looks like Kobe or Jordan or something like that.

  • He's not a point forward like LeBron right, like all those things were true.

  • So it's hard to think of.

  • How does that guy become the best in the league?
