Colin Cowherd: Zion Williamson is a Top 5 Physical Specimen in NBA History


Colin Cowherd: “This is what a phenom looks like and he’s not even in great shape right now. Zion is a better shooter than Blake Griffin will ever be, he is stronger than Charles Barkley, and he’s faster than Karl Malone. There have been only five highly skilled guys who just look different – Shaq, Barkley, LeBron, Karl Malone, and Zion. He doesn’t even look like a tight end, he looks like a defensive tackle. In a league that is 3-ball centric, very finesse, can’t touch anybody, and a lot of skinny 219-pound centers, he’s going to bully his way to 24 a night. Ja Morant is going to be a star but Zion is going to be a SUPERSTAR.” (Full Video Above)
