Memphis Grizzlies v New Orleans Pelicans
LAS VEGAS, NEVADA - JULY 14: Zion Williamson #1 of the New Orleans Pelicans warms up on the court before a semifinal game of the 2019 NBA Summer League against the Memphis Grizzlies at the Thomas & Mack Center on July 14, 2019 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Remember how after the Pelicans had their first game people were making fun of Zion Williamson for being out of shape?

Well, forget that.

This picture is out - you may have seen it - showing a Zion we didn’t see at Duke.

It’s not that he was in bad shape at Duke but he’s clearly lost weight and has remarkable definition compared to what he showed just a few short months ago.

If we had to guess we’d say he’s about 10-15 pounds lighter than he was at Duke.

And it’s just barely into August. He’s clearly been working with some knowledgeable people to help him sculpt his body. He’s already cat quick but after this? He’s going to be surreal to watch.

What happens when you have nearly a 50” vertical and get into supreme physical condition?
