There's a term in basketball called a "grown man rebound," but this is so far beyond a grown man rebound I dont even know what to call it. MERCY ZION pic.twitter.com/32jZEgp3Ni

Unless he gets ACL surgery and won't be able to play again until the 2020-21 season, he's still the consensus #1 pick.

adidas is such trash. michigan's old adidas jerseys used to rip frequently. haven't seen any shoes bust, but it was only a matter of time.

My thoughts and prayers go out to Zion Williamson, the tremendous superstar basketball player from Duke. His injury isn't surprising though once you realize Obama was at the game. Everywhere Obama goes nothing but disappointment and pain follows!!!! Sad!!!!

Duke freshman sensation Zion Williamson was forced out of Wednesday night's game against rival North Carolina after just 36 seconds with what Blue Devils coach Mike Krzyzewski called a "mild knee sprain."

someone said zion needs to wear lebrons since lebron is also very powerful and imo that makes sense

cool that he realized hes the best dunker ever and also has the touch of an angel so why waste time shooting outside the paint

giannis should study him

lag∞n, Thursday, 1 December 2022 22:37 (five days ago) link

wonder when the last time someone scored 30+ without taking a shot outside the paint was

lag∞n, Thursday, 1 December 2022 22:43 (five days ago) link

cant imagine zubac taking a shot outside the paint on his 31/29 game the other night

im a beacon of light (Spottie), Thursday, 1 December 2022 22:45 (five days ago) link

its gotta be pretty rare tho. and obv the way they go about getting buckets is very different

im a beacon of light (Spottie), Thursday, 1 December 2022 23:58 (five days ago) link

wild that he only took one shot outside of the restricted area

lag∞n, Friday, 2 December 2022 15:44 (four days ago) link

assume shaq had many 30pt games all in the paint, but surely more rare in the modern era

Lavator Shemmelpennick, Friday, 2 December 2022 15:48 (four days ago) link

best giannis has some

lag∞n, Friday, 2 December 2022 15:54 (four days ago) link

shaq for sure, dwight prob a lot, giannis maybe but hes always fancied himself a J tho.

more likely theres a few per season like zubac where its just a center getting a bunch of o rebounds tips and dump off passes for dunks. wouldnt be surprised if guys like jarrett allen, drummond, deandre, whiteside or even gobert have done it in the last half decade or so.

the cool thing with zion is hes usually like full head of steam coming downhill and has all these unique angles off the glass.

im a beacon of light (Spottie), Friday, 2 December 2022 17:27 (four days ago) link

yeah its mostly drives, the combo of nice handles defenders bouncing off of him and elite finishing skills is so sick

lag∞n, Friday, 2 December 2022 17:30 (four days ago) link

the vertical leaping too of course

lag∞n, Friday, 2 December 2022 17:34 (four days ago) link

yeah it really is the mixture of all the elements that make him special. we've had plenty of dunkers and high flyers but this is just something else completely.

im a beacon of light (Spottie), Friday, 2 December 2022 17:51 (four days ago) link

he has really good feel for the game too hes not just a freak hes a true baller

lag∞n, Friday, 2 December 2022 18:08 (four days ago) link

I hope he adds a Tim Duncan like bank shot to his bag.

Jeff, Friday, 2 December 2022 18:24 (four days ago) link

that would be sweet. being able to steamroll over everyone and get to the cup is probably not conducive to focusing too much on your footwork, but he's got plenty of time, sky's the limit

Lavator Shemmelpennick, Friday, 2 December 2022 18:28 (four days ago) link

whenever i read this thread i get the (great) lauryn hill sing stuck in my head then i find myself singing it and realize im singing it to zion williamson which is even better lol
