How Zion Williamson's Nike Shoe Might Have Ripped

  • Published on Feb 21, 2019
  • Seconds into Duke’s game against arch-rival the University of North Carolina, star player Zion Williamson went down and his Nike sneaker came apart. The shoe ripped violently, exposing his entire foot and causing the freshman sensation to bow out of the game with a sprained knee in Durham, North Carolina. Williamson is considered one of the best in the nation and is expected to be the No. 1 pick in the forthcoming NBA draft. Williamson was wearing Paul George’s signature Nike PG 2.5 sneaker.

    Nike is phucked! Imagine the ad that Adidas can come out with if Zion signs with them. HOLY CHEAP, CHINESE MADE SHOE, BATMAN!
    I heard $5 million a year from Nike. NAH! If Zion's agent can't get $10 - 15 million per, he should drop him ASAP!

    Conspiracy theories:
    1 of those boycott nike peeps got a whole to his shoe and tampered with it knowing this would b seen on a national platform just to sabotage nike.
    2 maybe sum1 who dont like Zion did it just to sabotage his career.
    3 lastly mayb he just got a defective shoe that was able to passed thru safety checks cuz sum1 was playing fortnite on the job.
