2019 — Zion Williamson
A bonus pick! Zion Williamson would probably have to get both of his legs cut off at the knees to not be the number one pick in the 2019 draft at this point, and even then he’d probably just start dunking from his knees.
But since we’re here, just know that sometime between now and the draft, you’re going to start talking yourself into R.J. Barrett as a wing creator or Ja Morant as the next great dynamo point guard, or you’re going to worry about Zion’s weight or his conditioning or lack of a clear position.
And I want you to know that you’re going to be wrong. Zion Williamson is the deserving 2019 number one pick. Lock it in.
