Pay close attention to Zion Williamson on the basketball circuit, because it looks like he’s not letting anything get by him if he can help it when a player drives to the basket.
During a summer camp game in South Carolina on Thursday, Williamson rejected an opponent’s dunk attempt with supreme authority. How extreme was it? Not only did his opponent go crashing down to the floor, but the backboard may have gotten the worst of the impact.
Zion Williamson just demolished the ball and backboard with this jaw-dropping block. Whole gym went silent when he went down. 😳 pic.twitter.com/I74OPa9Eeu

Ouch! Let’s check that play out from another angle, shall we?

Yep, that’s quite a monster block. Our thoughts and prayers to Williamson’s opponent and the backboard.
Williamson is considered one of the top recruits in the nation and his current pool of leading candidates for college is about as you would expect for such a talented recruit; North Carolina, and Duke (and Clemson?), according to USA Today.
