We all heard rumors that Zion Williamson had really put his time off due to the pandemic to good use, and that he would freak some people out.

Well mission accomplished.

This picture got around Thursday and while it’s just one picture it does appear that Williamson is in great shape.

It’s caused a bit of a ruckus on social with people posting some truly funny stuff. One guy said you might as well change Bane to Zane.

When you look at his history, in high school, he was a bit chubby. At Duke he was in solid shape and didn't really need to lift. After his injury in NBA summer play, he took some heat for a perceived weight gain. Now though he looks like he’s in great shape and the resumption of the NBA season, at least for the Pelicans and fans, should be a lot of fun.
