It’s been months since Duke star and future No. 1 overall pick Zion Williamson’s Nike shoe famously split on the court during a game against the University of North Carolina Tar Heels. But the world is still talking about the dramatic incident and whether Williamson will sign a big shoe endorsement deal with the athletic brand.
And now new footage obtained by TMZ that shows the 6-foot-7, 284-pound athlete rocking Nike Kyrie 4s during a workout in Los Angeles Thursday has many wondering if that means he could have signed with the Swoosh. Williamson wore Nikes in college because Duke has a deal with the brand.
The 18-year-old’s future career was put in jeopardy when his Nike PG 2.5s blew out during the game’s first quarter and he suffered a right knee sprain. Since, sports fans have been speculating whether Williamson will sign with Adidas, Puma, Under Armour or another brand. Talent and sports agency Creative Artists Agency announced yesterday that they signed the up-and-coming basketball star.
Check out the footage below.
