He’s only 16-years-old and college basketball coaches from coast to coast are drooling with anticipation, anxiously waiting to find out where Zion Williamson will play … in 2018.
Yup, the Spartanburg, SC kid is only a Junior, but he’s a man-child with a ridiculous skill set. And this past weekend he threw down a dunk in warmups that would have won the NBA Slam Dunk Contest.
I’ve never seen anything like this.

Seriously, watch it over and over again and the athleticism is still incomprehensible. What is this? NBA Jam?
He’ll be a one and done for sure, a future NBA star. While the ‘next LeBron’ may be a stretch, a Vince Carter comparison isn’t out of this world after seeing dunks like this, from a kid who is still trying to learn the Bill of Rights.
