Zion gets stripped of the ball when he drives the lane a lot.
It happened a lot last night, but a. the Lakers play serious D in the paint, and b. he really doesn't drive that much. They usually get him the ball down low via the lob or 5-7 feet from the basket, where he can back in or make a spin move. For his size, Zion's spin move and first step are absolutely unbelievable.

Devastating loss last night. T'Wolves suck and were without their best player, and Pels couldn't close them out? Going to be tough to recover from that one.
Will Gentry still be the coach next year? Seems he has reached his ceiling and is never going to take this team to the next level. Pels need a coach who can fully maximize the talents of Zion.
Doug Collins was coach of the Bulls when Michael Jordan was drafted. He wasn't a bad coach but he was fired and Phil Jackson was hired. The rest is history.
Is there another budding Phil Jackson out there? How about the Celtics coach Brad Stevens?
@Bengal B I don't follow the NBA coaching trees, so I really can't offer an opinion, but yes, I don't think we're going any farther with Gentry than we've gone already.
Can we get a basketball team in this state that plays even token defense. That was unforgivable.
Zion's offseason goal has to be to develop a jump shot, at least out to 10 feet. Otherwise teams are going to start laying off him when he gets the ball anywhere outside 5 feet. With a lot of players it won't matter; he'll still drive and outmuscle people to the hoop, although he may become prone to charging calls. But there will be some players who can match him at the rim (like last night, and Milwaukee did it too), and teams will also quickly learn to double team him the moment he puts the ball on the floor.
melli is a good player.
