    Anyone ever heard of him?

    Apparently he played basketball today for some school.

    Was just wondering because the 10 minute segments on him they do at every break on ESPN haven't been annoying at all.

    I'd really like a continuous ticker at the bottom of the screen on ESPN that has Duke's player stats and game schedule on it.

    ESPN list of remaining Duke games, all but one game on the main channel. Like NY and Boston in MLB.

    I'm getting to where I need to know what they had for lunch, favorite video games, you name it.

    Just can't get enough Duke.

    Honestly for watching basketball Duke would be fine but the overkill of everything they do just makes it hard to enjoy.

    Jealous?

    He's the best player in college basketball, an athletic freak and plays for a winning team. So yeah he's going to get a lot of attention and he deserves it.

    That block was incredible! I cannot believe his elevation. I agree, I get s little tired of hyping Duke, but Zion is on of the most athletic freaks I have ever seen. Not sure I can think of another player ever with his combination of size, strength and athletic ability.

    He's this year's Trae Young. ESPN has to tab at least one guy to over-hype all season long.

    While I agree they over hyped Trae. Zion is 10x the player that Trae will ever hope to be. He's a generational talent.

    Anthony Bennett?

    Zion is an athletic freak, but I think he will be a bust in the NBA. Whether its just purely from the hype, or if he is another Anthony Bennett type, Im not sure.

    Jesus Christ himself wouldn't deserve the attention Zion is getting on ESPN. The kid is good but it's over the top.

    Don't take this as a direct comparison to Lebron because I know Zion is not Lebron's level. But watching Zion in college is somewhat close to what I think it would have been like watching Lebron if he had gone to college.

    We'll get to see him first hand now with our crappy 9 seed and we play them in the second round on the neutral court of Charlotte, NC on Duke's way to their 12th national championship or whatever. So Iowa State of us.....

    CF: We're ok with hearing about Zion every 26.5 seconds on ESPN. Even during live action in the middle of a game that has nothing to do with Zion, Duke, or even the ACC.

    Also CF: omg, ESPN has such a bias towards the ACC. Why do they drool over that conference so much.

    Ya'll some confusing motherfuckers.
