I have seen the future of the NBA and his name is Zion Williamson.
After sitting out a few games with a injury, the Duke University freshman returned with a vengeance in his first ACC tournament game last night against Syracuse. Check this Stat line; 13 for 13 from the floor for 29 points in a 84-72 victory. The ultimate comparison of course is to Michael Jordan, who was 6’6 and 220 lbs in his prime, Zion is 6’7 and 284 lbs. Zion’s vertical is higher, he is more muscular and powerful under the hoop. Now dont get that twisted, that does not mean Zion will go on to win six Championships with six MVP’s in the NBA, but he does have skills that even the Greatest of them all did not possess. If you have not seen Zion play, you get another chance Friday night when Duke takes on in-State rival North Carolina (Jordans old team) for the right to play Sunday for the ACC Championship.
This kid is special, keep your eye on him, I know I will be!
