    But if he was the 5’6 kids blocking a 6’6 white guy.. it would be stop bullying Zion. No one ever says “scrawny black kid” because they think it’s bullying or even a racist remark, but bash white guys all you want.

    In Junior High School I was a skinny 6' white boy, probably weighed about 160lbs. In a game against the best team in our conference I had to guard a 6'5" mountain of muscle named Larry Easley. He was a man, I was punkass little kid and I would guess he looked at me the same way. He was scary. His older brother Walter played football at WVU and in the NFL. Larry ended up being one of the State's best players, I ended up being made fun of.

    Mad respect to the kid And Zion. No win situation for the kid but he took his assignment with pride. God I hope they do a follow up on him and find out he grew 8 inches and is now a 6'4 SG.

    Zions a class act

  • k333rl

    being a 5'7" white kid who played in high school, i know exactly what this kid went through. you know you don't really stand a chance, but you go in hoping they get sloppy with the ball or get over confident and just get in their way in hopes to get them to make a mistake. on the other hand, he may have also been a player with plenty of fouls to spare and just went in to cause a rukus and put someone on the foul line.

    Overrated nba player why he is in the nba? Why everybody want him in is he an illuminati??

  • troplaya55

    Zion’s reaction didn’t seem like he respected anybody… Like he was too good for anyone to even bother. He can say whatever he wants now, but the footage tells a different story. Not a big deal, but I’m not taking the bait.

    That kid was ready to GO! Came in with confidence, intimidation, and bodied Zion. He did his job of fouling him and not letting him get that shot it. I’ll take a player like that on my team anyday of the week.

      @MiniBirthMyChildren ...I just disagree. If the kid was Zion's size, then that would be courage because people would expect something. The kid knows nobody expects anything and has nothing to lose. He is free to do silly antics, commit fouls that require no skill, etc. I have been in this kid's shoes where I was asked to guard somebody who was clearly way better. There was no pressure because nobody really expected me to stop him.

    • MiniBirthMyChildren

      Silliness from the coach sure, courage from the kid

    Now I know why JJ Redick is so disliked. Yes this was a unusual video because of the size difference but to humiliate another player who is not as talented as you or who was not blessed with your freakish physical attributes is not funny. To say you were once an A@shole is not accurate, you still are one.
