Zion Williamson turned a dominant season at Duke into the number one overall pick in the NBA Draft. He proved during his one season that he was much more than a highlight reel dunker.
Despite that fact, Zion hasn’t convinced everyone that he’s bound for greatness.
That includes free agent center Enes Kanter, who told Colin Cowherd he thought Zion was “overhyped” and called him, “Julius Randle with hops.”

Randle, who also was insulted by Kanter’s remarks, caught wind of them and the two traded shots on Twitter.

We can assume that Kanter isn’t going to be signing with the Pelicans this off-season. There’s no better way to cross teams off your free agent list than to start throwing around insults.
