Another game, another freak-of-nature play from Zion Williamson.
On this play, Oklahoma City Thunder Abdel Nader tried to make the best of a broken play by driving to the rack. He seemed to sneak by Zion with a euro-step, with a layup attempt thereafter. Zion’s instincts had him recovering quickly though and he had his eyes on the ball throughout. The shot never had a chance, as Williamson spiked the ball into the Smoothie King Center front row.
The sneakers Zion rocked for this highlight block was the Air Jordan XXXIV. The 34th jumpman sneaker features large Zoom Air units in the heel and forefoot to give Williamson even more bounce to his step. A cored out pebax plate surrounds these units for lightweight stability. The upper is composed of a lightweight mesh for breathability, with a woven layer adding much needed durability.
Zion rocked a green faux-gator colorway dubbed the “Bayou Boys” for this moment, which is available HERE.
