ZION WILLIAMSON is The FUTURE Of BASKETBALL On SLAM MAG!!!





16-year-old SPARTANBURG, SC native SPARTANBURG DAY SCHHOL Senior Forward #12 ZION WILLIAMSON is The FUTURE Of BASKETBALL, and; he covers the new issue of SLAM Magazine!!!


Here are some interview interludes:

On seeing a photo on INSTAGRAM of Rapper DRAKE wearing his jersey number:

“I woke up probably around 8-ish. I had hundreds of messages—group chats, like 50 Snapchat notifications. My phone just blew up. They were all like, go check Instagram, look what Drake just posted. I saw that he had my jersey on, and I sent him an IG message that said, ‘Thanks for showing me so much love—I don’t think you understand how much this means to me. You’re my favorite rapper.’I asked him myself. I said, ‘Yo, how did you get that jersey?’ He said he had it custom made. I just left it at that.”

On the energy that he feels after one of his dunks, and; responding to young children:


“It’s an adrenaline rush. It just gives you so much energy. When I get the ball or a steal and I’m wide open, you just hear everybody rise, and you hear, ‘Ohhh…’ and then you dunk it, and everybody’s jumping, high-fiving each other, and you’re just running down the floor like, Let’s go!
“I love it. When I was a little kid, even though I didn’t know what advanced dunks were—like windmills, 360s—I used to just want to see somebody dunk. Like, ‘Can you dunk? Dunk it!’ So when I see little kids go, ‘Zion, dunk it!’ I just look at them and say, I got you.”

On his future aspirations:

“I want to be one of the greatest that’s ever played this game. I want to have a great reputation—nothing bad. Be a Hall of Famer. Try to win at least three NBA Finals, even though that’s probably nearly impossible, or very hard—but I’ma try. And give back to my community.”
