Jerry West: Passing on Zion Is Like Passing On Jordan In The Draft

Zion Williamson and Michael Jordan

Hall of Famer and Consultant with the Clippers, Jerry West calls into The Dan Patrick Show to discuss the recent success of the LA Clippers who stole a win from the Golden State Warriors by coming back from a huge deficit in game 2 of their NBA Playoffs series.

Dan Patrick presents Jerry West a Scenario saying:

DP: If You had the Number one pick, you had to choose, who would you pick?
JW: I think it depends on the team, but I don't know how you pass on Zion Williamson. That would be like passing Michael Jordan in the draft, I think.
JW: I've never seen a body that big, that quick, react the way it does. He has got incredible balance, his ability to avoid college that's a hard thing to do. Everyone will now be on the edge of their seats when they watch him play.
