Colin Cowherd: Zion Williamson is Already One of the NBA's Best Players

Colin Cowherd: “Start listing guys in the NBA you WOULDN'T trade Zion for. You wouldn’t trade Anthony Davis for Zion? You sure about that?? Ben Simmons or Zion? I’m taking Zion. Westbrook or Zion? I’m taking Zion. Paul George or Zion? I’m taking Zion. Zion is this good NOW, and has only played 14 games.” (Full Video Above)

Listen to Colin Cowherd explain why he thinks New Orleans Pelicans rookie Zion Williamson is already a Top 20 player in the NBA, despite the former Duke phenom having only only played in 13 games at the professional level.

Colin said he took a lot of heat in March of 2019 when he said Zion was already a top 20 player in the NBA, even though Zion was still playing at Duke.

Now established as a legitimate contributor in the NBA, Colin says he would rather have Zion than current stars the likes of Anthony Davis, Russell Westbrook, Paul George, and Ben Simmons.

Zion is averaging 23.3 points and 7.1 rebounds on .573 shooting in only 28.5 minutes of action, and is coming off a 29-point performance vs. the Lakers in his debut versus LeBron James.

Check out the video above as Colin details why Zion is rapidly leaping up the list of the game’s most elite players.
