    Shaq actually weighed about the same as Zion when he was a freshman at LSU. 294(listed weight junior year) vs 285

    Precisely. A power player who could still be very agile.

    The closest thing to Zion was Charles Barkley except Zion is about 3 inches taller and has better court awareness, basketball IQ. Chuck had a better motor which allowed him to gobble up rebounds like no one else other than Rodman.

    If you think Barkley was 6'6" then you've never met him. He was 6'4" on his best day.

    Based on this highlight, Zion is way, way more athletic.

    Zion is pretty much more athletic(Power and Speed) than anyone that has played the game other than Lebron, Shaq, Dream and Wilt.

    Stronger than lebron and faster than wilt, shaq and hakeem. Stronger than hakeem too. But hakeem has height and pure talent and basketball instincts/iq over zion.

    Agree to an extent. The hype is getting completely out of hand.

    Zion needs to work harder on his height.

    I give credit to Zion for developing further past this highlight reel HS mixtape. Kid looks good! It's always tricky seeing how players will pan out in the NBA. Remember how dominant Michael Beasley was in college?

    Such a bs myth that flies around without question. Are you really gonna try and convince people Barkley was the same height as Dwyane Wade? Barkley was in no way, shape, or form any shorter than 6'6 for his NBA career. Just because Chuck said it doesn't mean it's true, players lie about their height all the time. KD until recently insisted he was 6'9. KG would claim he's 6'10 even though he was clearly taller. Just go look at the dream team group photographs and compare heights.

    You gotta be pretty gullible to believe Barkley was 6'4"
