NBA stars are loving them some Zion.
Zion Williamson is the betting favorite to be chosen number one overall in this year's NBA Entry Draft. At 6'7" and 292 pounds, Zion is an unmovable force that dominates on the court with the Duke Blue Devils night in and night out. Any struggling team would be lucky to have him next season as he would surely help change their fortunes. NBA players are already starting to take notice of Williamson, including LeBron James and most recently Steph Curry, who has made it clear what he thinks of the prospect.
“He’s unreal. We were talking about him the other day in our team room,” Curry told the Undefeated. “He has a lot of hype around him and he’s unbelievably talented, but you can’t teach his passion and the way that … he plays. He plays hard every possession, and that’s an underrated skill that kids can kind of emulate.”
Williamson has helped Duke achieve immense success this season as the team is currently ranked first in the country and are among the favorites to win the NCAA Tournament in March. Zion is averaging 22.4 points per game and just over nine rebounds, making him one of the top scorers on Duke.
