Steve Kerr Just Compared Zion Williamson To LeBron James


It's against the rules for NBA execs to talk about college athletes. That didn't stop Steve Kerr from spilling the beans on his opinion about Duke superstar Zion Williamson.

Then again, Zion's 28 point, 30 point blowout win over Kentucky didn't make it easy to not ta.k about him.

Is he comparable to LeBron James though? It's a stretch, even if there are some similarities.

Kerr definitely sees something special in him though.

"I saw some kid on Duke last night who is pretty impressive," said Kerr. "I probably can't say anything more ... I thought LeBron, I thought that was a one shot deal, but apparently the next guy's coming. Before I get fined, I'm going to change the subject."

Yeah, fair to say that Steve Kerr is a fan of Zion.

While he and the Warriors are SUPER unlikely to get him, one team will be lucky enough to.

And if he's anything like how he's looking to be (and how everyone says hell be), we can expect a lot of great things.

Maybe even some LeBron-like things if you ask Kerr.
