Yeah I totally would have taken the other pick just to piss off his agent, but I think everyone knew that Zion was going here. I can't wait to see what this guy looks like in the game since I didn't scout him much but its good to have these top tier talents added to the class.

Here we go! At least in 1 version of the Knicks future, we picked up Zion Williamson.

There goes my first option at 5 :(
So what do you expect when you draft Grabby McHolderson to play your right tackle?

Be interesting to see how he goes in game given the game can't emulate athleticism and he's what? 6'6"? Will he have the LeBron issue?

New York Gm Stockton believes in the gods ( the lottery gods that is ) and they smiled favourably as the Knicks once again ended up with the number 1 pick after they finished with the 7th pick in the lotto . “This is incredible “ Stockton spoke .

The Knicks then had to quickly jump into their scouting as they only had scouted Zion and the others in the top 3 once after they learned they had jumped . The results came back And it was a close call between Zion Williamson and Luka Doncic with both players being superstars but it the end the Knicks had to go with their gut decision and draft ........

Zion WIlliamson with the number 1 pick in the draft . Williamson’s only weakness will be his 3 point shooting but that doesn’t bother Stockton as he will join Markelle Fultz and Jared Jackson Jnr on a young but excitingly team to be watched closely in seasons to come.

“He will be a superstar we have needed for a long time “ Stockton said to a reporter ..”he can draw fouls , he’s a monster on the rebounds and can even pass, steal and block shots there will be no one like him “.

Strengths:
- unstoppable force at the rim
- finishes through contact routinely
- highly intelligent player that has clearly received top-notch coaching throughout his career
- mismatch on the offensive end for any player tasked to guard him
- has guard skills with the ball in his hands

Weaknesses:
- Is he too short to play center full time?
- Is he too heavy to be effective at power forward?
- for a player that draws contact like he does, you would like to see a better FT%

Best Case Scenario: LeBron James
Worst Case Scenario: Ben Simmons

Zion is a next level player. Hard for me to say that Ben Simmons is his "worst case" but he very well could challenge him as the best player in the league. I'm really interested to see him in action.

Next level Simmons. Knicks gonna be a contender right away. If you draft a player that lets simmons look like a beginner, you are the front runners for the title

Creator's Note: I had the honor of creating Zion and was given free reign to do just that. We decided to make an elite-level prospect like Ben Simmons. The difference here is his size: 6'7", 285 pounds. How will the engine handle a center with his ball handling and passing skills? How will the engine handle his size since we can't take into account his athleticism? These are questions that remain unanswered in the CSL world but there's no denying that he's a transcendent talent that, if developed, will put New York basketball back on the map the way DeAndre Ayton has failed to do in Brooklyn.

NYK is definitely on a rise now with this addition. I think it will be very interesting to see how his weight/height combination will translate in the new engine.
