Kevin Durant Impressed By Zion Williams, Shai Gilgeous-Alexander 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Thu Dec 13, 2018 12:34 am

Kevin Durant said Zion Williamson is a "once in a generation athlete" and that he's "never seen anyone like that before" on The Bill Simmons Podcast.


Durant described Williamson's impressive leaping ability, saying he's never seen a left-handed player "who can dunk like that with his right hand, and cock the ball back so far, and jump so high off two feet".


"I've seen people jump high, but not that way", Durant added about the Duke forward.


Durant went on, saying that Shai Gilgeous-Alexander is the rookie that's impressed him the most this season.


Of Gilgeous-Alexander, Durant said "he's got the mid-range down. His mid-range is so good. He shoots it with a high release so it's hard to block at 6'6" with a point guard on him, so you gotta put a two-guard on him. And he's still shooting over two-guards...Once you learn how to shoot the mid-range, I feel like the three-ball is going to be easier for you to shoot". 


Durant also shouted out Ja Morant of Murray State and Bol Bol of Oregon.

Think he made that comment for the free trip to NASA.
