            This kid has 1000% more class and humility than Lebron James. Lebron James is a legend only in his mind, Lebron James doesn’t hold a candle to Michael Jordan or Kobe Bryant

                He’s really a mama’s boy. After a game here in Spartanburg, he went straight to his mother and gave her a kiss. I loved it!!

                  Zion is truly a special kid. Notice how he emphasized the importance of his mother in his life. When it came time to mention his step father, he tried to avoid his existence. Meanwhile, his step father supported him financially and sacrificed for him as well.  However, his step father is not his father. 

                  Lesson to be learned; if you get with a single mother, you'll NEVER be 100% respected by her kids. Even if they become the best in the world at what they do.

                    don't worry be happy This is actually a course of study for me. Something I’ve been fascinated with. I’ve seen my own brother take on raising 3 kids from 2 fathers. He seeded the 4th. He had great credit. He had a pension. He had a 401k. Amazing union job.

                    Today, his credit sucks. He’s underemployed. And she’s pregnant with a 5th from a new man.

                    During the relationship she made it clear he was not the father of the other kids and he should not discipline them. I tried to tell him that only a beta male will finance the growth and development of another man’s child. He didn’t listen.

                    The home was broken as 1 out of 4 kids view him as an authority figure. The one he seeded. Then, he spoiled that child, his child as “payback” and then the home began to disintegrate.

                    That aside. All I did was listen to Zion talk about the influence of his mom.

                    That’s great.

                    But as Hov said “mama can’t raise no boy, what’s his father name?”

                    That aside. It’s apparent Zion grew up with his mother re affirming that she was his father and the other male in the home was there to pay for his sneakers.

                                                      @Aaron White These athletes make it difficult to forget they are so young. Look in the NBA, no 50 year old hooping of course; however, his aggression and intelligence is what people mean. I feel you tho, but like I said it's the opposite. Such as a agressive Lion who is playful and childish at different times. Good stuff

                                                            Look at his body posture and his television presence..... he's such a child!! And yet, the whole industry (including myself) is absolutely in awe of how amazing he is!! We look at his physical dominance and his freakish abilities, and we quickly forget that this a teenager..... so amazing!!! I'm rooting for you Z!!
