Former NBA player Rex Chapman compared Shawn Bradley, left, and Zion Williamson on Twitter.

Last week, former NBA player Rex Chapman, who has become known on Twitter for his funny personality, put forth an interesting statement on the social networking site.

"Before Zion Williamson there was Shawn Bradley," he wrote, and added some emojis.

The comparison was on brand for Chapman as far as its goofiness was concerned, but below the words, he added a video of highlights from Bradley's prep days, where the 7-foot-6 giant dominated at Emery High School before moving on to BYU and the NBA.

From that standpoint, Chapman's comparison was right on as far as Williamson's play for Duke was concerned before he got hurt on Feb. 20.

Comparing Le'Veon Bell's new contract and Gordon Hayward's last with the Utah Jazz

On Tuesday, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported that former Pittsburgh Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell has agreed to a contract with the New York Jets that could get up to $61 million over four years, with just $35 million of it guaranteed.

After Schefter broke the news, NBA reporter Danny Leroux observed that the maximum value of Bell's contract is less than the four-year, $64 million offer sheet Gordon Hayward signed with the Charlotte Hornets in 2014, which was matched by the Utah Jazz.

Hayward is currently in the second year of a four-year, $128 million deal with the Boston Celtics.
