Williamson is projected to go first overall.
Zion Williamson will be making his March Madness debut today when the Duke Blue Devils take on the North Dakota State Bison. While the focus should be on the tournament at hand, Williamson, who is the consensus first overall pick in the draft, is already being asked about how he would feel about playing in the NBA. As of right now, it looks like the New York Knicks have the best shot at drafting first-overall and Zion seems pretty content about the idea of playing for them.
"I know that they're a very historic-like team," Williamson told the New York Post."They have a lot of history based off of. I mean, if they draft me, it'd be an honor to play for them."
Williamson has been seen as a savior by Knicks fans who are desperate for something good to happen to their franchise. While Zion is flattered, he doesn't exactly see himself that way.
"I mean, I don't know if (the Knicks) need much saving, but … to the New York fans, I really appreciate the love and support," he said. "If the Knicks did draft me, I would love to be there. Like I said, whatever team drafts me, that's where I want to be."
With just ten games left in their season, the Knicks are last in the league with a record of 14-58. Needless to say, the team could benefit from a talent like Zion.
