    more weight does not mean more problems. UNLESS you're too big for your body type. is that the case for him? we dont know.

    what we do know is, he's built like a tank from top to bottom. aint like he has stick figure legs with a giant upper body. that would be an easy top heavy guy that we could say needs to lose weight.

    if you're legs are tree trunks like karl malone or lebron. your legs can hold that weight.

    The problem may be that shoe busting injury. that may have made that leg so unstable when he came back(too early). now he's having wheel problems period. that can happen. you hurt one leg or one knee or one foot/one hip on one side of your body. then all of a sudden you start having minor injuries to other parts all due to that initial injury making everything else have to over compensate. which places to much pressure on those other body parts down low. its like you having a flat tire then you put a donut on it and try to drive 5 hours straight. you will eventually mess up your cars alignment even after you get new tires.

    this zion hate is on another level and i dont know why. the kid is a humble cool dude. he does what we wanted bron to do when he came in with that crazy size and athleticism. just dunk on erry body and erry thang. now people are mad at him for doing that. "bu bu bu he cant shoot 5 threes a game." as if thats necessary to be efficient and to help your team. it aint. its a nice icing, but it aint the cake in his case.

    if he was lazy on the boards. i would agree. if his defense sucked. i would agree. if he never moved the ball and was a blackhole . i would agree.
    but non of those things are the case.

    ZW comes from the same freaks planet of Durant, KG, Shaq, Bron. all freaks in their own right. why is a guy at that height and or that height and weight or that weight. moving like that? why is that guy that big, that heavy. able to move that quickly from left to right and that fast straight ahead and why is he jumping so da... high? thats who he is. love it basketball fans. we got another one. hate his team once they start getting really good and assuming you never liked that team he's on. wait til he starts getting arrogant and becoming the next one up before the hate starts. enjoy this ride. we've been weight for another charles barkley and we got him. we thought it was julius randle. it was to a certain degree. but this is julius on HGH.

    This is Julius Hulk Randle . Zion Smash...Zion Smash everything and everybody. and us basketball fans should love it.

    Can y'all muh'fukkas stop saying this nonsense?

    The amount of actual hate Zion receives is minuscule in comparison to the hype; y'all need to stop conflating hate with actual discussions around his skillset. Since when the fukk did concerns over his weight and skillset = hate? Are we really at a point when anything that isn't dikkriding is classified as hate? What the fukk does him being a "humble cool dude" have to do with anything? That shouldn't even come into it if you're speaking about his game.

    And let's be honest here, the amount of hate is NOT on "another level", it's not even remotely close to someone like LeBron. And also, having a jumpshot is not just "icing", it's the cake.

    NO its not. I'm hearing hate from random people outside of online talk. the hate is real. And the hate comes from No where. People have this disdain for people who are hyped up before they reach their peak. especially after being let down by a few people. so they would rather hate first, and love you 2nd after you reached your peak. vs taking an educated guess and saying "yeah, this dude might be next up as the one or one of the ones."

    being humble means a lot to explain why he has no real reason to be hated on. there's a difference between saying "he should get a jumper to expand his game and prolong his career. then add he should probably lose 20 or lbs to get lighter , even quicker, while still maintaining his strength for his game and his longetivity. vs people using that as a "he aint all dat...he aint going to be all dat... he aint no bron. he aint no..... he aint..... he aint..."


    Then the excuses... well... it was just preseason vs the bulls. that man was in the paint with other fully grown men that he was shorter than. jumped off vet and did a 180 dunk in Traffic. WHO DOES DAT? stars...thats who. there's been a lot of high jumpers in the league. only a select few were stars and only a select few had that kind of uncanny ability and thought process to even try that. there are many more hyper athletes in the nba than we know. they are afraid to use their ability or dont know how to properly use it in that manner to be super effective.

    the truth is this. This dude is an alien. and assuming he aint a lazy a... dude. and he isnt injury prone(Jury is out to lunch still debating this). he will become a superstar. now will he become THE ONE...maybe. with all the things i never liked about brons game i knew he was the next one in high school. he was so much bigger than everyone and his size was the size of 28 year old seasoned vets playing power forward and center at the nba level already. he could handle the ball very well and he could finish with either hand. sure his jumper was suspect. but it didnt matter because he was that big, that fast, that quick, that agile, and with a handle and finishing ability with either hand meaning he will get to the cup regardless of your defense ..MOST TIMES. This is similar to Zw. i'm not sure if he can go both ways as well as bron, bron is one of the best at it. and no he does not have the same court vision of bron even though Zw has pretty darn good vision for a true scorer by nature as well as an athletic guy. usually guys like him are tunnel vision guys looking for that next lob pass.
    Zw is not bron because bron is a pass first alien who cant be stopped going to the rack. Zion is a score first alien who can pass. he may end up being the scorer we always wanted bron to be but that was never in brons nature to be. i said MAY.

    as of now just be happy we're about to watch him dunk all over everybody.snag a lot of O-boards go right back up strong and get them and 1s as a kid basically. that and his desire to play defense is more than enough to not just get rookie of the year. but he can easily become an allstar in the league doing nothing else outside of that. due to his alien abilities/weight/strength.
