Zion's marketability
Zion will be a minimum 3 or 4 times the star AD was for us. Zion's infectious smile, personality, dunking style is the american wet dream. AD had great skill set but lacked the marketability aspect to companies. AD's best chance at taking his stardom to the next level is hitching his wagon to Zion now IMO. Be best buds, adopt this kid, take him under your Red Bull Wings and start flying high together IMO.

It will be through the roof.

He is marketable as all get out.

re: Zion's marketability
I never once considered an AD jersey.

I want every Zion jersey.

This city will look for it's new Drew type icon once he retires and Zion has every opportunity to be it.

re: Zion's marketability
He’s more marketable than AD based on the fact that Zion doesn’t have two sets of bottom teeth.

re: Zion's marketability
AD was a pretty good "lets go see him" player in the league when the pels traveled...

Zion is a MUST SEE player. Paired with AD and a glue jrue on roster... Pels will be a ticket office hit across the nba.

re: Zion's marketability
I'd argue that Zion has instantly become the #1 must see road show.

He's also probably going to top the league in jersey sales and bring in actual bandwagon fans from around the world.

There was never a big AD solo fan base, nobody was following AD to a new team. Zion will have a huge solo fan base.

re: Zion's marketability
AD is not good-looking or well-spoken. Those facts severely limit his star potential and endorsement possibilities. That's why I have to laugh at the people who say, "he's a top-5 player in the NBA, so he should be making as much $$$ as _____."

re: Zion's marketability
It doesnt have shite to do with looks lol. If ANYTHING, AD's goofy appearance gave his persona a boost out of the gate.

It's that he's never spoken above a whisper or jumped on a scorers table or showed any semblance of killer instinct outside of Portland series and a handful of shots in 7 years. OKC game winner comes to mind.

Those moments we're so few and far between.

yes it does. his unibrow is a bit obnoxious, his teeth are horrible, and most importantly he's difficult to understand and has very little personality. (from how it appears at least)

quote:

semblance of killer instinct outside


just furthers the above lacking criteria.

He will be the biggest star we’ve ever had here and that includes Brees, and that’s because basketball is much more global.

re: Zion's marketability
Nothing to do with AD's looks. The unibrow is unique to him, but it's ok to say Zion is more marketable without calling AD ugly. KD has the worst hair I've seen in sports history that I can remember and makes a killing every year even back to OKC days.
