The holy crap reaction after Duke posted Zion Williams’ weight at 285 continues with SBN’s estimable Ricky O’ Donnell calling him a “refrigerator with wings.” That’s good but we prefer the Bumblebee because like the bee, Williams shouldn’t be able to fly but somehow does.

O’ Donnell found the right physical comparison and one we missed in NFL great Julius Peppers.

People forget that Peppers walked on - and was effective - for UNC basketball. However he wasn’t nearly as athletic as the Bumblebee is.
