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.
