Zion Williamson is 6’7″ and weights 285 pounds. Let that sink in.
To put the amount of sheer strength this young man posesses into perspective, here is a short list of large athletes who he weighs more than:
Jerome Bettis (251 lbs), Mike Tolbert (243 lbs), Ben Rothlisburger (241 lbs), David Ortiz (230 lbs), Aaron Donald (284 lbs).
He weighs more than a guy who they literally nicknamed “The Bus” because of how big of a human being he was. Not to mention he has one of the highest verticals I’ve ever seen. How does one person move so well but weigh so much? My brain can’t even process it. Just look for yourself:
Absolutely unfair. If Duke doesn’t win it all next season with that kid on their roster, I will lose all faith in their basketball program.
