Alvin Gentry is over the comparisons of Zion Williamson to LeBron James.
The Pelicans star has been touted as one of the next greats, which naturally draws comparison to James, a future hall of famer. However, Gentry is trying to nip that in the bud as the NBA preseason gets underway.
“They shouldn’t do that [comparing],” the Pelicans coach said, via ESPN. “We are not doing that. We are comparing Zion to Zion. We want Zion to be the best Zion Williamson that he can be. Not anybody else. We want him to be the best basketball player he can become using his name and no comparison.
“I know that it’s inevitable that that’s going to be the case, but we are not drinking that Kool-Aid.”
