    Zion Williamson Having Historic Season In The Paint

    Over 25 points per game on better than 62% shooting.

    Nobody's ever done that.

    Wilt once had 68% and 24.1 points.

    He also has 25 straight games with 20+ points and better than 50%, tied with Shaq in shot clock era...per ESPN.

    Gianis has no shot. He has 2 mvps and nearly made it to the finals one year.

    I posted in a thread the other day, the 8 teams that took the most three point attempts in the reg season last year, not one of them even made it to the conference finals.

    Analytics ppl don't really know shit about the NBA.

    If you can't score in the paint you can't win a championship, it's that simple. Ppl think Curry is just a shooter but the guy is lethal when he attacks the rim.

    You can't win a championship shooting jump shots. GS is the only team ever to do it and it's because the greatest shooters of all time.

    71% free throw shooting this year. He could definitely develop a shot and would be dangerous.

    But not sure he needs to, he's very efficient at what he does.

    Obviously there's a million ways to measure things but one ratio we look at is the Free Throws made divided by the Field Goal Attempts per game.

    Zion comes in at .377 while the league averages .192.

    Zion is specialist and hack a Zion might not pay off for the other team lol.

    My point from the example really being that he's already a specialist.

    But yeah, there should always be growth in the game.

    If shaq or any other ball of Game Center played in this era they’d be better than that, he goes against small players almost every night. He plays no defense can can’t shoot which is a big part of the reason his team sucks dumb shit.

    Their is nothing historic about his season.

    He's one in a long line of NBA guys that would struggle with real basketball. But in the NBA put your head down and take it hard to the basket and if you're quick/ strong enough you'll get a dunk or FTs.

    I can understand the league bending to it. Money is the bottom line so when a player goes barrelling into the lane and knocking opponents over like bowling pins they call a block every fuckin' time.

    Question is why don't the WNBA change their rims to 10ft high? More dunks, more money for everyone. I know the answer: too proud/ too stupid.

    FIBA. They don't play with the rules every odd year for the benefit of aesthetics.

    Antetokumpo has played in FIBA and he struggled mightily. Williamson would struggle the same -though for team USA as opposed to the Greek NT.

    He got shut down by Alex Garcia. I don't suppose you've heard of him? He's not an NBA guy or even a top Euro club guy.

    Zion will never be anything close to Kobe or Jordan, he can’t shoot a 12 foot shot with consistency dumb shit.

    Greece sucks, and frankly Giannis is not as strong and physical as Zion. Zion could certainly dominate.

    FIBA? Are you referring to the international players that come to the NBA and can't even beat out a bench player for a 15th man slot? If the world was so great at basketball they wouldn't get dick smacked by the USA constantly.

    His second best player was Khris Middleton bro. The guy is nothing more than a rip hamilton, probably worse. Give Giannis a legit superstar to play next to like Lebron has had for all of his prime career years.
