Chris Broussard gave his opinion on Zion’s mania in the media and his comparison to Shaquille O’Neal.
“I love him, I am a Zion fan, I am impressed wildly, but what he’s doing, but there are some things that are going too far. NO [Zion is not the new Shaq]! First of all, Shaq was 7”0 tall, I know Zion is huge, but he’s 6″6. Shaquille O’Neal’s game would be dominant in any era. I do think he [Zion] could have been as Larry Johnson, like Charles Barkley, but I also think he would have to evolve as a player. Zion goes left all the time… Zion hasn’t proven as a good rebounder. He’s not Shaq.”
