Zion Williamson dented a basketball with his dang fingers

New, comments

What the ...

Zion Williamson added yet another “this has to be fake” highlight to his reel on Tuesday night with this photo against Louisville.

Just a guy grabbing the ball, right? What’s so impressive about that?

HE’S DENTING THE DANG BASKETBALL WITH HIS FINGERS!

This is not normal. Seriously. Take a basketball, inflate it to 8 PSI and see if you can press it in at all. If you use all your force with both palms you might be able to depress the ball a little, but nothing like this.

Consider the situation: Zion is trying to rip the ball from an opponent. He’s not pressing against a solid object with no give. This is a human. Also the angle plays a part here too, and proves that this is all grip strength.

I can’t wait for Zion to hit the combine so we can get these measurements on paper.
