NBA comps for five elements of Zion's extraordinary game

The NBA comparison game is tricky in any draft. No two players are identical, and it's easy to talk yourself into or out of a prospect just because he reminds you of someone else.

But for a player as unique as Duke's Zion Williamson, comps are even more challenging. Williamson is this year's consensus No. 1 pick, likely headed to the New Orleans Pelicans at the start of the 2019 NBA draft on Thursday (7 p.m. ET on ESPN). There's also a strong case that he's the best college prospect since Anthony Davis.
