There's nothing this kid can't do. Soar to unbelievable heights to block a shot in the corner, dribble coast to coast as if he's the starting point guard, rattle the rim with monstrous dunks, and now physically denting the ball with just the touch of his fingers.
6-7, 284 pound 18-year-old freshman phenom Zion Williamson
Is Zion....DENTING THE BASKETBALL WITH HIS FINGERS??? pic.twitter.com/XjQjlA86Bl— Tyler Conway (@jtylerconway) February 13, 2019
In the shocking 23-point comeback by the Blue Devils last night, Zion racked in 27 points, 12 rebounds, and three steals, all in 32 minutes.
At this point, Zion could do a Monstars-style dunk and I’d be like, “yeah that checks out.” pic.twitter.com/sVJIymXs4s— Justin Bolinger (@justinpbolinger) February 13, 2019
It should no longer come as a surprise when Zion continues to display mutant-like feats such as this one. His size has been compared to that of Charles Barkley, aka the "round mound of rebound", but way more athletic. If he were to enter the NBA today, he would be the second heaviest player in the league.
If one thing is for sure, Zion is not your typical college basketball player, and it will be very interesting to see what the future has in store for him.
