Zion Williamson Laughs, Hides From Camera When Asked About Playing for the Knicks

Not a good sign for the Knicks 🤣

Zion Williamson‘s first game at Madison Square Garden was, behind his college debut, his most anticipated game to date. And after playing there on Thursday night, the 18-year-old still had mixed feelings about the city that never sleeps:

Aver palming off the question, he saved face, telling reporters that “playing 41 games here wouldn’t be so bad”

 

Good move, because you’ll likely end up there (or in Cleveland) big fella

Zion fouled out late in the fourth quarter, finishing with a very solid 17 points and 13 rebounds in 25 minutes, in Duke’s 69-58. victory over Texas Tech.

Per ESPN:

“Forty-one games at the Garden, I mean, it would probably be incredible,” the projected top-five NBA draft pick said after helping Duke come back for a 69-58 win over Texas Tech.

And given that the New York Knicks are among the worst teams in the NBA this season, Williamson — as well as fellow Duke freshmen RJ Barrett and Cam Reddish — could be available to be selected to play his home games at MSG next season.

“This is the Garden,” Williamson said. “A lot of greats have come through here. My favorite great to come through here was probably Bernard King because my stepdad talked about him a lot how he just put the ball in the basket. … I had to go watch his highlights. He could really score the basketball. He was incredible how he did it.

“Playing 41 games here wouldn’t be so bad.”
