Colin Cowherd was back on the air today doing the thing he always does where he says something that initially seems quite ridiculous but grows on you as the segment goes on. Today his muse was the Luka Doncic-Zion Williamson tandem of young superstars, which in his mind is the closest thing the NBA has had to Magic Johnson-Larry Bird in a long time.

Doncic's Bird-like characteristics have been well-documented. Williamson is a much different player than Johnson, but it in many ways the same diametric balance to his counterpart.
