Duke freshman Zion Williamson, the consensus player of the year, made it official Monday, declaring his eligibility for the NBA draft.

Williamson, whom ESPN ranks as the No. 1 prospect in the June draft, made his announcement on Instagram, saying it had been the "best year" of his life and thanking those who helped make his dream a reality.

It will be interesting to see how well his body can hold up under rigors of a long 82 game schedule, not to mention the pre and post season games thrown in. :eek: Most NBA teams [lay between 5-7 preseason games.

Do we know if he's signed a shoe deal yet? Nike got some real bad press that night. I'll bet Nike would like to sign him, after all of the bad press they received after he came out of one of their shoes. A very embarrassing moment for Nike on national TV and then on SportsCenter.

What better way to do major "damage control" than to sign him, and have him play every game for the next 5 years in his own "personal" Zion edition/brand of Nike shoes. To me, that's a no brainer. Every BB player (young & old) in the country saw that video. Whatever they pay him, they'll make it up on his shoe sales over time.
