Zion Williamson’s college career came to an abrupt ending yesterday afternoon when the Duke Blue Devils lost toe Michigan State Spartans in the national quarterfinals of the NCAA Tournament.

Despite Duke’s loss everyone is projecting Zion to be the #1 overall pick in the NBA after his stellar freshman season.

While everyone is fawning over Zion former NBA star Gilbert Arenas doesn’t think the Duke superstar’s game is going to translate well in the NBA.

During his podcast this week Arenas gave his brutally honest opinion on how Zion is undersized and not skilled enough to play at the next level.

A 6’6 power forward you’re undersized, you’re 285..sounds amazing but in reality if I say well he’s Westbrook’s height and Shaq’s rookie weight people start saying oh that’s not good

At 6’6 285, you haven’t posted up at all. You never posted up in high school…When you go to the next level what position do you play? You have this great phenom player that has no true skill.

While some agreed with Arenas’ assessment many felt that Gil was way off on Zion.
