2755082, Joel and AD are elite defenders, Zion's been a train wreck defensively

so far in the league. Granted he is young and been dealing with injuries to start his career so doesn't necessarily mean he can't improve on D. But even with his insane athleticism, at 6'6" he will never be the type of rim protector / defensive anchor they are, so he is not going to be a transformative two-way big man in the mold of those guys.

Now he could be an offensive force in a mold that we have really never quite seen before. But with the questions on his health already right off the bat to start his career, and with Ja taking a superstar turn right before our eyes, right today I would take Ja over him without hesitation.
