Is high school hoop star Zion Williamson better than LeBron James?

I bet the other kids playing against him aren't even having any fun

Zion Williamson is making waves.

A 16-year-old high school junior who is 6'6" tall (and plays "small forward"), has been finding his name in headlines since December, when he set a scoring record by putting up 53 points in the Chik-Fil-A Classic while being defended by two 5-star players.

Now, a video compilation of Williamson's dunks has gone viral after being shared by Bleacher Report, and it is NASTY. I bet the other high school kids who are forced to play against Williamson don't even have any fun.

This kid is a monster. Is he better than LeBron James?

Maybe not better than 2017 LeBron, but I'd take Zion Williamson in a one-on-one against high school LeBron any day. LeBron was a big star in high school, but he wasn't on Zion's level. Williamson electrifies the crowd more than LeBron ever could. Sure, LeBron's high school fame didn't come in an age where everything noteworthy was on the Internet, but come on? Did every sports host in the country wake you up every day with reports of what LeBron had done in his high school gym the night before?

They did, in fact. LeBron was a once-in-a-generation high school basketball star. Zion Williamson is a once-in-a-generation star, too, and we're several high school generations past LeBron.

We won't have to wait long – in a couple years, Zion Williamson will be going head-to-head with LeBron in the NBA. But for now, keep tuning into Popdust for coverage of our favorite high school hoops star.
