Dallas Mavericks fans and Zion Williamson should be crossing their fingers that the Mavs win the NBA Draft lottery on May 14.

The Dallas Mavericks are hoping to secure the number one pick in the NBA Draft lottery on May 14. The Mavs have a 6.0 percent chance of selecting first overall. It is no surprise who Dallas would choose if they win.

Fans know the old adage. What happens when an unstoppable force meets an immovable object? Well, Zion Williamson, the 6’7 285 pound behemoth out of Duke, is both.

It took Williamson just one season in college to post historical numbers. Now the all but guaranteed first overall pick in June’s draft will try to replicate his unique success at the highest level in the NBA.

The team that is lucky enough to land the first overall pick this year will be getting a player with superstar upside. Zion weighs more than any other NBA player besides 7’2 Boban Marjonovic. Yet, he possesses the skill, coordination, and quickness of a guard. Williamson is also an unselfish, team-first guy with a tenacious work ethic.

There has been a lot of talk about Zion’s fit in destinations like New York, Phoenix, and Atlanta, but little has been written about him in Dallas. It is true that the Mavericks have a small chance of winning the lottery. The organization with the best odds of landing the top pick is only 14 percent, so it could happen.

Let us examine how Zion Williamson fits with the Dallas Mavericks in the off chance they pull the rabbit out of the hat on May 14.
