    2K U IDIOTS ZION WITH A HIGHER CARD THEN JA WHO WON ROTY

    2

    it's Ronnie you rly can't ell what's he's doing there(still scamming)

    -2

    Zion played in like 30 games thus the reason he didn't win rookie of the year. I'd say the ratings quite accurate as his defense is weak. He's 22ppg 8rpg in like 27mpg... Hard for him to not have a higher rating than Ja who could be a bit higher overall too.

    -18

    zion is better than ja tho, ja won ROTY because he was healthy

    14

    Shut up u clown ja>zion

    -11

    i mean zion was drafted #1 overall and was considered the best in the draft class so idk

    10

    So was Anthony Bennett so...

    -1

    why they so salty zion averaged 20+ pts playing half injured in 20games played

    -1

    idk, Ja deserved ROTY tho, I was just saying zion is a better player which is why he has a higher overall

    -3

    yeh exactly If Zion plays 82 games he wins

    he cant SHOOT

    45% from three this season

    My bad 43% from three

    HES MADE 6 IN HIS CARRER IDIOT

    1

    2k was smart to make him 68 from 5hree not sure what your complaint is. Had they based it off that small sample size at 43% hed be a 90+3pt shooter....68 is below average 3pt... He's rated like a 30% 3pt shooter and his defense is below average inside and on perimeter. His FT sux. He dominates inside and on fastbreake... Like reality. You don't post a 24.1 PER in 25 games without being an all-star level talent... His winshares percentage is at that level too. He put up per36 29ppg 10+rpg 4apg 2spg...

    He is the best rookie... 22ppg 7rpg 3apg in 27minutes at 55%+FG he displayed statistically and subjectively he's already an all-star talent with the potential to be a true monster on both ends.

    We are lucky Zion isn't mad overrated in the game period. He makes the NBA so much money already he's the face of this new NBA. Had 2k just said Zion has shot effectively from three in 25 games even though he made 4/4 Trey's his first game and finishing 40% could of made justification for an 80+3pt.. and say they made him average to above average on D wee have a 90+ Zion already with his efficiency and 24 PER... luckily they based it off the 2 of 9 threes the final 24 games he played. Take away game 1 and he's a 68.... And took 0.4 threes a night... Just as his 3pt tendency is low as fawk in 2k too.

    -3

    Ok first of all, calm the fuck down, I managed to piss you off with literally the most chill thing ever. Second of all, even if he has only made 6 threes FROM WHAT WE HAVE SEEN, he is just as good as threes as Ja. You fucking idiot... LMAO.

    1

    Calm down? Who are you? I'm simply a basketball observer pointing out obvious thing. You have done nothing to "piss me off". Again I'm just presenting facts to you... It's called a rebuttle and isn't one sentence. You claim "from what we've seen he's as good as Ja" and your comment makes no sense... Zion took 13 threes in 25 games total. 6 for 13 that's 0.4 3pt FGA per game. Ja played in 67 games makes 60 of 179 3pt shots last season. He took 2.9 3pt shots a game, so per game rate he shoots the three roughly 7 times more a game to Zions 0.4 attempts.

    I'mm not angry, I'm here to present facts and hope your an educated person with reason understanding and may listen to facts.

    Ja not only took 179 threes but he made 34% of them. Basically 1 for 3 per game from three to Zions 0.15 made of 0.4 attempted. Per game rate Zion had he played 67 games would have taken roughly 31 3ptFGA compared to the 179 Ja took.

    How you can state "we saw the same amount from Ja" and not simply listen to these paragraphs of objective facts and reasoning is beyond me. how you can think how player A shooting 2.9 threes a game is similar to player B shooting 0.4 threes a night in 25 games on 13 total shots to 179 total shots is a rather different samle size and sample rate.

    ZION IS SO OVERRATED BRUH

    2

    Bust. ESPN tried so hard hyping up this fraud as the next great player.

    1

    Beware! Zion is the face of the NBA and makes them hundreds of millions each year. We have about one year I'd say, maybe 2 max, maybe 6 months, untill ZioN is GOAT in 2k.

    After one full season (or even half a season of him at 25ppg 10+rpg 4+spg 1.5spg 1.0 bpg at his high efficiency he will be the 2k BEAST like a few others have been.

    Remember Yao? Yes he was 7'4" and great when healthy, he rarely was healthy... But made the NBA hundreds of millions of dollars. Billions maybe. He was rated high quick.. but also was a video game giant inside with his shooting touch and 7'4" size. Somehow his defense was never the mediocrity it was in his career though. He couldn't move laterally... But it didn't matter. From 2005-2010 in all those 2ks I remember half the games I played online were against houston as everyone cheesed with Yao inside n midrange. He'd anchor D and block 5 shots too. Reality was Yao could never play great D, most guys 7'1 to 7'6 would block 4-8 shots a night if playing 32 minutes a game..... Of course that never mattered to 2k.... I hater it and was often the lAkers my home team, Bynum couldn't stop Yao from going for 45 and 25 in those 2k8 days, Yao would always score more than half the points of those rockets but he was unstoppable. Pick and roll with Tmac and Yao was impossible to guard.

    Then Lebron was born. He could shoot at 6'8 but was a 2 way monster... By nba 2k9 he was the best, and 2k10-15 the NBA 2K GOAT. He deserved it.. he's amazing talent. But 2k always let his rating be high, but his animations, strength, badges or skills over the years were insane. He was unstoppable. His mediocre 3pt shooting then was never a weakness in 2k. Or his mediocre FT shooting. His defense was good in reality not great to DPOY level like games made him. He was 40/15/10 glory in those 2k10s online. 40 of those 60 team points.

    Just like Yao, LEBRON made them hundreds of millions in that span and still does. Yes he's still one of the best players in the world. But I'm 2009 he wasn't a lock defensive anchor nor a 3pt shooter. Didn't matter for 2k...

    But ZION will become gOD of 2k in about a year or so, and very possibly the face of the next 2k22 game. If he plays 25 more games at the same or higher level of efficiency he will become a 90-95 overall God by 2k22, though I'm sure that 2k21 will have a huge update after the nba season starts in the fall. But we all need to brace ourselves. Zion will be a god. You take the fact he is already an all-star caliber player of quality that needs to only improve his shooting (which isn't as big a deal for a PF like himself that can jump and run out of the gym), he will improve. His nonexistent defense to not get in foil trouble will turn into above average defense that is all he needs to become. Though potentially could be a threat on both ends as he acclimated to pace. If Zion could very possibly come out a polished and game impacting 25-30ppg 12rpg 5apg 2spg 1bpg 57%FG in 33mibutrs or so a night. And he doesn't need to improve or shoot 3s to do that. If he can reliably shoot 35% or better from shooting open threes the 4-5 open looks he can take them with confidence. Anything higher than 33% is a positive shooting deep. He can easily be 40% in time. 6 months, or 2 years.

    Either way he'll be a 95 overall with his huge body and strength and athleticism with those long arms and 45" vertical. But he has high bball IQ like a veteran, he's improved rapidly already. His shots only getting better each month... Each day. This guy is the face of the NBA already after 25 games. He's already up with Lebron in terms of pure fans drawn from their likeness. Zion can jump over you, jump through you, or even hopstep floater or fade on you with finesse. His free throw will go from weakness to a strength. 75% at the least. By then he's a 96 overall with 50 badges Hof.

    Zion is a great defender. But he's also a great/elite scorer and slasher and creator for himself and others. As a #1 option from day 1 in the NBA (very few NBA stars know what it's like, KG great example), offense running through you half the time or more on the court. You only have so much energy as a human. As well as personal fouls dictating defensive aggression, when you need to score 25 a night you can't be in foul trouble. Zion has quickly learned this and will master the balance beter with time and games played. But he will always need to be on the court for 35 minutes a night thus not be the defensive anchor he could be. Jordan had Pippen to guard the best perimeter guy. Kobe n Shaq had Rick Fox. Lebron and wade even had Battier.

    By 2k22, I bet 5 months after it's release we are all on here sick of how unstoppable Zion base roster player truly is. Online verses matches will be half Pelicans ran squads. Much like the recent Ben Simmons PG Philly squad lineup being the GOAT to match Bucks. Zion will go for 40 of 60 points, grab 12-15 boards, dish 7 dimes, snag 4 steals and block 3 shots contesting another 8 to miss. Hell rebound and go full court with his handle, speed, size and strength, go behind the back at half court to attack dribble eurostep cross key to a gather and explosive dunk. When guarded well he will pump fake and then float a ball in an majority of the time. Hell jump over and through your defense as I try to charge draw but instead blocking foul and one opportunity.

    I want to come here in 18-36 months and know I was right about this. Zion will be God and goat in 2k earlier than we thought, and it's going to last year's, maybe more. If Zion plays 25 more games at a level even better than his first 25 we are doomed.

    Zion can do everything. There's no true weakness. While his 3pt shooting needs to get better, we forget he's a power forward, hell a small ball lineup he will play Center in, and has more fans than most the other NBA AllStars who are 10 year vets.

    At his freight train size and insane foot speed, agility quickness and power to compliment the skills and ball handling ability he has to match his hoops IQ and passing, he's a freak. Grabbing a defensive board with him will result in a fastbreak finish by Zion or whoever he dishes to on the attack with numbers.

    I'm actually surprised he's not more unstoppable already. I almost find it disrespectful he's an 84 and average animations n physics with him. Other 22 and 7 guys like Jay Brown, Siakam, DeRozan, Griffin, even Julius Randle I am as good with on 2k. I know it was only 22 games but I watched 20 of them and he's a stud... 22 and 6 in what always felt like 2/3 an actual game with him.

    We are lucky his PD Card from last year's myteam isn't his stock card yet. Haha.

    Also what happened to Russell Westbrook the Triple Double God, or Wilt The only player to ever hit 100 points in a game and average 50pts per game and 25.7 trb per game. Or Harden almost the most Unguardable player in the world. Or Jordan the man that changed the nba. Or Kareem/Karl Malone the top 2 points a game, plus Kareems Skyhook.
    Or Bill Russell most championships by a player/averaging 24.7 trbs per game also once averaging 18.9pts per game. Or Oscar Robertson the first Triple Double God. Or Moses Malone

    Also No Luka is a lot better than Zion and will always be better.
    Right now Luka is most likely the next GOAT but I think it could be Emoni Bates over Luka.

    I think it would be Emoni Bates because he is the first rookie since LeBron James to be allowed to go straight to the nba from High School.
    Also Emoni Bates is said to play like KD. Also the reason 2022 is going to have a super draft is because Emoni Bates is in it.

    But Luka has proven that he can't be guarded not even Zion could guard him.

    So as of right now I say Luka is the next GOAT but theres a chance Emoni Bates could be the next GOAT.

    Zion has no chance of being the next GOAT.

    Im sorry but Yao is 7'6 not 7'4

    Lol so true. He's 7'6" in my all-time roster my league.... I hate how they change players heights like KD is 6'9 and 6'10+ depending on card....
