Zion Williamson, the most hyped rookie in the NBA in years, just electrified Cameron Indoor Arena for what was a phenomenal freshman season.
Listed at 6’7″ and 285 pounds, Williamson ran up the scoreboard averaging 22 points, 9 rebounds and 2 assists a night at Duke. If you’re unfamiliar with the Pelican rookie’s playmaking ability, you weren’t paying enough attention to the world of basketball.
Williamson was a walking highlight reel in high school. Playing under Coach K, Williamson’s game exponentially grew beyond just rocking the rim. A shot blocker, playmaker and overall two-way stud he’s destined to make his presence known in the NBA sooner rather than later.
The soon-to-be household name rocked almost everything Nike Basketball had to offer while at Duke. From the newest chapter in self-lacing shoe technology to notable Duke alum Kyrie Irving’s signature line, Williamson was the focal point on all aspects of the hardwood.
As the world awaits what shoe brand Zion signs with and as we all tune into his summer league NBA debut tonight, peep his Kicks on Court from his freshmen season at Duke.
