I still think Zion is a bit overhyped. I know I will get flake for this but wasn't Anthony Bennett also an athletic undersized big? However, if he does somehow become a Charles Barkley type of player I would be shocked. I think Draymond Green is a fair NBA ceiling.
Bennett wasn't even in the same universe as Zion in terms of athleticism.
There were questions about Bennett's drive in college, Zion hustles his ass off on every play (he actually cares about basketball).
And Draymond Green is still an amazing comparison. Green will probably end up in the HOF when it is all said and done.
