    You don't kill Superman with another Superman (or Ben Affleck in an ugly-fake-ass Batman suit), you kill him with Kryptonite. This guy has flaws for the modern game but he also possesses the anti-venom to a lot of the critical strategic and schematic nuances which drive today's NBA. You can teach shooting; doesn't make it easy to learn or ensure success but you can teach it. However, you can't teach what god gave this young man WRT basketball. In the business world I'd call him a disrupter.

    Now the difference between this guy and James White - back when he and David Lee were headed to Florida to play for Billy Donovan - is that with James White's body type you need to play an excellent defender and a competent - at least - 3 pt shooter. Think right-side-of-the-bed Corey Brewer, nay, think Monopoly-walking-stick-twirling Corey Brewer. With Zion you don't have constraints on what he absolutely needs to do to be successful except for rebounding and finishing at the rim. Book it.

    With the post above in mind I'll throw out a few possible nicknames:

    The Hack
    Paradigm Shift
    Swamp-Drainer (haha, couldn't resist!)
    Clone
    Prototype
    The Drone
    Freight
    Thunderbolt
    Inflection Point
    Paradox
    The Portal
    and wait for it....
    waitttt for it....

    SKYNET. Kind of encompasses the theme of disrupting the status quo and neither "SKY" nor "NET" need any explanation after watching a few of his highlights.
