Steve Kerr compares Zion Williamson to LeBron James

The Warrior’s Steve Kerr compares Zion Williamson to LeBron James.

Asked Wednesday if he had taken note of something related to Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo, the freakishly gifted star player for Golden State’s upcoming opponent, Kerr replied, “No, but I saw some kid on Duke last night who is pretty impressive. My goodness.

“I probably can’t say anything more, or mention his name,” the coach continued, before acknowledging that Duke had “lots” of impressive young players. “The one who’s 285,” he specified.

“I thought LeBron, I thought that was a one-shot deal, but apparently the next guy’s coming,” Kerr said. To laughs from the assembled reporters at Golden State’s practice facility, he added, “Before I get fined, I’m going to change the subject.”
