Sure Zion Williamson can dunk, but can he throw precision dime passes? Yes? Okay then.
The crazy part is, Zion did this on the big stage of the ACC Championship Game. Duke had a small lead early in the second half when Zion corralled a rebound. In the most Zion way possible, he was off to the races. Williamson stopped abruptly at 3/4 court then chucked the ball a step behind the hoop. The laser bounce pass landed right in Tre Jones lap as he dribbled once and stepped forward for the easy layup.
The footwear of choice for this game was the Nike Kyrie 4. This version was specially reinforced with Coach Krzyzewski sending Nike’s top guys to look into the busted PG sneakers. The swoosh team ended up cooking numerous Kyrie 4s after their findings. Williamson would go on to alternate between Kyrie 4 colorways the rest of the year to avoid the wear-and-tear that likely played a part in the PG 2.5 incident.
This guard sneaker featured Cushlon and Zoom Air in the heel for a soft, responsive ride. Even with this cushioning, the wearer sits low to the ground for added court-feel. Mesh and leather makes up the upper for breathability as well as a nostalgic touch.
