Zion Williamson’s college debut lived up to the hype and then some, with the Duke Forward dropping the craziest highlights.
The number 4 ranked Blue Devils absolutely smashed the number 2 Kentucky Wildcats in the first half with a 28-point lead. Wildcat Forward Nick Richards sealed off his man and received the ball right at the rim. Richards went up nonchalantly and before he knew it, Zion was in his grill. Williamson blocked with his right hand and controlled with his left in one motion, snatching the ball like taking candy from a baby. Zion then raced past half-court and threw a laser-precision bounce pass to teammate R.J. Barrett who finished the and-1 layup. The brotherhood was solidified as Zion and R.J. got in each other’s face to hype the other up.
The sneaker in this highlight was the Nike Kyrie 4. This style features a soft Cushlon foam in the midsole that combines with a bouncy heel Zoom Air unit for a comfortable ride. Mesh and synthetic leathers made up the toe and heel uppers respectively. The main attraction is the traction, which rides up the midsole for secure movement from all angles.
