Is Zion Williamson The Next Coming?

Dan Le Batard, Papi and Izzy Gutierrez question if it's fair for Steve Kerr to compare Zion to LeBron, if Tyson Chandler can turn the Lakers around, if Cam Newton or Big Ben's season is more impressive and much more.

FINAL: Duke 118, Kentucky 84 Just a breathtaking performance from Duke and its freshmen. R.J. Barrett, Cam Reddish and Zion Williamson combined for 83 points. Kentucky had a ton of issues defensively and John Calipari couldn't seem to find the right lineup combination — and it might not have mattered anyway. Duke was that good.
