Zion Williamson defies gravity, dunks from the free throw line

Duke basketball is up in Canada for a preseason trip: practices and a series of exhibition games, which starts tomorrow (Aug. 15). At a practice session in Toronto, Zion Williamson took flight, and sent basketball twitter ablaze.

First, Canadian wunderkind RJ Barrett tried a dunk from the free throw line; however, right after Barrett threw one down from just inside the stripe, Williamson went for the real deal.

Here’s another look of Williamson sky-walking up in Toronto. This is wildly impressive, especially when you remember: this dude weighs 285 pounds, according to Duke. This is basically someone the size of Julius Peppers flying through the air with grace. Wow.

Williamson and Barrett are, of course, 40 percent of Duke’s prized 2018 recruiting class. The Blue Devils open the 2018-19 regular season on Nov. 6 against John Calipari and Kentucky.
