This just in: Zion Williamson is quite strong.

The New Orleans Pelicans’ rookie forward showed off his otherworldly strength and athleticism in the NBA Rising Stars Game on Friday night in Chicago. Zion threw down a dunk so powerful, that it resulted in a bent backboard at the United Center.

Zion also showed off his ridiculous reach on this alley-oop dunk (with the feed from Ja Morant).

Zion finished with 14 points in the USA’s 151-131 win over the World.
