Zion Williamson in Dunk Contest? He’s not making that decision yet
We are 129 days from the NBA All-Star Saturday Night Dunk Contest in Chicago. It’s a long way off.
Which is why Zion Williamson said he isn’t deciding right now if he is going to participate.
Here is what Eric Woodyard of ESPN is reporting:
Hard to blame him for waiting. Between certainly being invited to play in the Rising Stars game on Friday and a host of other events Jordan Brand and other sponsors will push him to do throughout All-Star Weekend in Chicago, Zion is going to have a lot on his plate. Plus, by that point the Pelicans will have played 55 games, Williamson may have hit the “rookie wall” — having played more games already than he ever had in a season before — and decide to back off the physical demands.
Sure, all that could happen.
Zion not going to miss the chance to dunk in Jordan’s house and build up his legend.
