Re: Zion Williamson

I think a Duke player might have done it before but it's hard to remember pointless tournament games.

Zion does not crush Wilt, who was taller and faster, and who is widely thought of as the strongest man ever to play in the NBA.

I think Zion is once in a generation, and has a great chance to have a Barkley-like career and end up in the HOF. Heís great fun to watch. But Wiltís skills were, and are, hard to believe.

Re: Zion Williamson

Agreed that Zion would crush Wilt. In fact, scientists believe that any object that comes within Zion's event horizon will be subject to a gravitational collapse.

Re: Zion Williamson

Wilt played before Einstein, so Iím not sure those physics rules would apply to such a contest. But no, there is no universe in which Zion crushes Wilt.

You're going to have a hard time convincing me that Wilt was stronger than Shaq.

Wilt and Shaq shake hands at the 0:30 mark. Wilt was 36 years older than Shaq

Thatís probably the closest. Schwarzenegger relates a story about Wilt, in his forties, picking up Schwarzenegger one-handed and throwing him over his shoulder. Or benching 500 pounds in his fifties.

Zion Williamson

Wilt the Stilt

vs.

Zion the Lion Zion Williamson

Basically Victor is right again (I mean when is he not right? #KnightsOfTheSkypeZilla). If Zion played college ball when Wilt did he would be even more dominant to the point where the discussion would be ridiculously close.
