High School Basketball: Zion Williamson Jeff Blake-USA TODAY Sports

In this episode, Cole Zwicker joins Sam and touch on a variety of topics. First, they discuss Zion Williamson and his commitment to Duke. What kind of prospect is Williamson? Is he as elite as his reputation purports him to be? Also, what could his NBA future look like, and what does his fit with Duke look like?

Then, they discuss Sam’s updated 2018 NBA Draft Big Board. First, they discuss Sam’s move of Deandre Ayton to No. 1 over Luka Doncic. Then, they discuss Mohamed Bamba, and why Sam is a bit lower on the long-armed center. They then move on to the Kentucky guys and discuss some of the better players on the Wildcats’ roster who could be one-and-dones.

Then, it becomes more of a grab bag. Why is Chandler Hutchison sitting at No. 14? What do they think of Arkansas big man Daniel Gafford? Is Killian Tillie a bit overslotted at No. 25? What do they think of Melvin Frazier, Lonnie Walker, Landry Shamet, and Jontay Porter? Finally, Sam asks Cole who the most overrated or underrated player on his board is.
