What Zion Williamson's injury means for Duke, Coach K speaks on broken shoe | College Basketball

  • Published on Feb 21, 2019
  • Not even a minute into one of college basketball's most anticipated games of the season between North Carolina and Duke, freshman phenom Zion Williamson goes down in a way not many have ever seen before. Williamson stopped on a dime and his shoe fell apart before either team scored a point, contorting his knee and falling to the ground. He did not return. Jay Bilas joins John Anderson and Steve Levy of SportsCenter to analyze the injury in depth and what it could mean for Coach Mike Krzyzewski's team moving forward (1:20). Following Duke's 88-72 loss to Roy Williams' Tar Heels, Coach K briefs the media, calling Zion's diagnosis a "mild knee sprain," (3:55) while teammate RJ Barrett discusses with reporters what the Blue Devils lack without Zion in the mix (4:55).

    I honeslty feel that it was the mere force of Zion. I’ve seen an incident where this 280 pounds athlete in my college in the UK who was doing bodybuilding decided to play a game of basketball and his shoe ripped off and it’s ironic cuz he never wanted to play as he knew he generated a lot of force whenever he’s on the court

    The stitching should be double or triple stitching on entire shoe. This guy is so powerful when he plants to stop or reverse direction the normal stitching cannot withstand the force. I wear Nike's but nike should have custom made his shoes.

    The example shows how mendacious the whole system is: The coach, who lets his team play like a professional team, earns millions of dollars a year. The players themselves have to settle for stingy scholarships. These players spend much more time with their sport than with the real academic education. It's all just an alibi. The universities earn a total of billions with the sport and pay for it practically nothing, the players get involved in it, because they dreams of an NBA career. The only question is, what do those who fail to do in the NBA? They have not studied properly, so they are not prepared for a working life beyond basketball. And if they hurt themselves permanently? They stay invalid all their life. But you have to act like professionals and risk everything (including their health), otherwise they fly out of the squad and also from the university. A very inhumane system that only benefits those who benefit from all the money. Most of the players (and these are the players who will not continue to play basketball professionally) profit very, very little from it. If they want to achieve something in life, they still have to complete a broader education. And indeed, players are not professional players, but they have to do as much as professional once.
