Detroit Pistons star Blake Griffin, who is a decent dunker himself, is a big fan of Zion Williamson and thinks the one-and-done Duke star could be the best dunker ever.
Blake makes sure to point out that Zion is more than a dunker and has a chance to be a monster in the NBA.
Via TMZ Sports:
Of course, Zion has been legendarily rattling rims since he was a high school prodigy … and now that he’s on his way to the NBA, we had to ask Blake if Z can be one of the best dunkers ever.
Blake’s opinion? He says there’s no doubt in his mind Zion can be up there with Michael Jordan and Dominique Wilkins, telling us, “100 percent. 100 percent.”
“If he keeps playing like he is, he’s going to be a monster.”
In fact, Blake seems to be a huge fan of Zion’s game overall — not just his dunking — saying, “He’s a really good basketball player … he can do a lot of stuff. He’s going to be really, really good.”
Let’s pump the brakes there a little bit Blake. While I do agree Zion will be a good NBA player, I’m not as willing to just handout the best dunker ever title just yet. He’s got some work to do first.
