Williamson is already making a big impression on the NBA.
Heading into this year's NBA Draft, the player that almost everyone has going number one is Zion Williamson. The Duke Blue Devils superstar has displayed some impressive speed and strength. Struggling franchises are salivating over the possibility of being able to draft Zion and it appears as though other NBA stars are already starting to take notice of the immense talent Williamson has displayed. One of those players is none other than LeBron James who traveled to Virginia over the weekend to watch Duke play Virginia.
"It was a game between the [top] teams in the country," James explained to ESPN. "Coach K [Mike Krzyzewski] is my guy. And the flight was 35 minutes. So, it was easy. It was easy to be able to do it. It was my first time seeing Duke play, I think, in my life. I want to go to Cameron [Indoor Stadium] someday, too, though."
James then spoke about what it was exactly that impressed him about Zion's game.
"What strikes me? His agility and his quickness," James said. "For his size, how strong he is, to be able to move like the way he moves, he's very impressive. I mean, everybody can see the athleticism. That's obviously, that's ridiculous. But the speed and the quickness that he moves [with] at that size is very impressive."
Duke is currently ranked second in the country and will be a favorite at the March Madness tournament next month.
