Zion Williamson a freak of nature.

Recommended Posts

They come around every so often, Jim Thorpe, Jesse Owens, Cassius Clay,  Jim Brown, Wilt Chamberlain, Usain Bolt.

This kid has thrown a football 80 yards in the air, and has stud TE written all over him.  I have no doubts he could cook a 4.6 low in a 40.

Anxious to see him in the tourney, how many.....damn, did I just see that?  Yep....Barry Sanderish, Gale Sayerish.

Hope big $$$$$$$$$$$$ doesn't spoil a good thing.

Best freshman I’ve ever seen in almost 4 decades of watching basketball. He’s the next Jordan from a marketing perspective

Don’t worry, the NY Knicks will screw this kid up when they get him.

Unreal athletic ability.  The most surprising thing for me is how quick he is for a guy his size.  Dunks and post moves are great but the passing and amount of steals he gets are amazing.

Would be a fantastic TE, imo.  With his hands and hops, talk about 50/50 balls in the end zone.  I bet his 40 would also surprise everyone.  ~4.4 imo.

Agree 100%, assuming the NBA rigs the lottery like they probably  did with Patrick Ewing in 1985.

How insane is his vert? I would love to see that tested.

and how quick he gets off the floor even after an offensive rebound.  Got springs in his shoes. 

Vertical test, sorta

1:12..  that's a lot of weight to get up that high.

That's what I thought. He's thick like Barkley and moves like Jordan. Whoa. That's incredible.

Good name, too. Way to be, L. Hill.

Also he seems like a great guy. Every interview he gives, he puts the team first. After pulling off a huge comeback win earlier this year, they asked how they did it and he said something like "Coach K tells us we are winners so we have no choice but to win."

I honestly haven't watched much this year, but that looks so ridiculous I just enjoy the raw talent and defer to @ZenoRazon and his thoughts on the young man. And it led me down a Lauryn Hill/Israel tip that I wasn't expecting. Mr. Intentional is quite the song from Unplugged.

LSU agrees with you. They offered him a scholarship as a tight end even though he’s never played organized football (his high school didn’t have a team).

I bet they went to him with a "strong ### offer".

He improves his shooting a little and he's a top 10 NBA guy.

 It's a shame Mike Francesa is no longer on radio. He'd be getting calls all day about Zion.

He's incredible to watch and as a beaten down Knicks fan it bums me out that he didn't end up there. Not because I'd be rooting for a winner or anything like that. I just truly wish I could flip to MSG on game nights and watch him play even if just for 20 minutes a night.

Dude averages ONE dribble per touch.  He is flying into the wind of the NBA and excelling.  Fun to watch.  He'll be the face of the NBA for 15 years.

I love how Francesas whole argument about him not being a superstar was he couldn't guard the biggest freak in the nba. Nobody can.

It's quite the phenomenon. I've always casually kept up with the Hornets/Pelicans over the years and had been to one game before.  Since Zion arrived, I have watched every game that I have been home for, kept up with most of the others on GameCast, and have been down to watch two of the games in person in the last couple of months, including the matchup versus Ja. The dude just makes you want to watch. He's that special of a talent. And he has not disappointed.

Same here.  I've never watched much basketball.   I've been to a hand full of Hornets/Pelicans games and had a great time, but I never really followed or cared much about them.  I especially hate that every time we get a star player, we know he's gonna bolt as soon as he can for a bigger market.  

With Zion here, I'm actually checking the schedule, trying to watch the games when I can.  I'm hoping to become more of an NBA fan going forward, and its 100% because of Zion.

He would just claim "I nevah said dat".

No way he lasts 15 years with that body.
