It is not often we get to see a mean dunking machine like Zion Williamson react in awe. Well, it was more disgust and flabbergastation. Giannis Antetokounmpo threw down a nasty dunk over Jonas Valanciunas and Zion was appalled looking at it.

Zion, who has been out for the last few weeks and is still inching his way back from a hamstring issue, was present to witness the destruction of his team.

Antetokounmpo took no prisoners tonight. He scored a stunning 50 points, his second 50-point game of the season, to demolish the New Orleans Pelicans.

And he had a few memorable plays, including this vicious dunk.

Giannis’ vicious dunk has Zion Williamson making faces in disgust

First, let’s take a look at the dunk itself, Giannis was not going to take any prisoners. Jonas Valanciunas, unfortunately, happened to be the defender.

Now, just take a look at this fan-filmed reaction from Zion Williamson.

Yup, he is not happy about that. And as a dunking force himself, he can tell that this dunk was just plain filthy.

To make things worse, Antetokounmpo hit a three late in the game to cap off his night and get 50 points.

Welcome to the FreakShow indeed. Although, we think Williamson would have had something to say about the game if he had played.

Zion Williamson is an All-Star starter!

Yes, despite missing more than 20 games in the first half of the season, young Zion will make his second All-Star team. And this time he will be a starter from the west.

While we can’t deny Zion’s meritocracy, there are still questions as to how others more worthy of him have missed out on the slot. Even Charles Barkley has spoken out about it.

The debate will be pointless as the outcome is already in front of us. Irrespective of opinions, we hope Zion recovers soon so we can see him at his best during the 2023 NBA All-Star game.
