Kevin Durant On Zion Williamson

Zion needs to make sure he keeps his head on level with all the attention that’s coming his way. Fortunately he seems pretty down to earth.

As Zion Mania continues, it’s Kevin Durant’s turn to weigh in and he says this:

“He’s a once-in-a-generation athlete, I’ve never seen somebody like that before. Zion Williamson, I’ve never seen anybody that’s lefty that can dunk with his right hand like that, and cock the ball back so far and jump so high off two feet. I’ve seen people jump high, but not that way, you know what I’m saying? He moves good. Zion, he’s protecting the rim in the half court, that’s how athletic he is. He’ll be a great team defender.”
