College phenom injured after sneaker explosion


//

Consensus No. 1 pick in this year's NBA Draft Zion Williamson has left the court after a spectacular sneaker blowout left him with an injured knee.

Williamson, who is one of the more hyped prospects in recent history, was the centrepiece of the grudge match between rivals Duke and North Carolina, for which ticket prices were said to have gone for over $2000 a ticket, prices comparable to this year's Super Bowl.

The Duke star, who is renowned for his explosiveness, was looking to make a quick change of direction when his Nike sneaker blew out, causing him to turn his right knee just minutes into the game.

Following the incident, Williamson was ruled out for the remainder of the game, with a suspected knee injury.

Williamson is widely considered to be one of the best prospects to come out of the NCAA program in several years, with comparisons to four-time MVP LeBron James, and former US President Barack Obama was also in attendance to watch the college phenom.

NBA MVP candidate Paul George will no doubt be left disappointed after it was his signature shoe the PG 2.5 PE that gave way.

Standing at 6'7" (201cm) and weighing in at almost 130kg, Williamson's body type is unprecedented for someone his age, and he has used his physical traits to put together one of the most dominant seasons in college basketball history.

The 19-year-old has converted a remarkable 68.3 percent of all shots in his 25 games this season en-route to averaging 22.4 points and 9.2 rebounds a game.

Williamson's injury caused widespread reaction from Twitter, namely from LeBron James himself.

The injury also resulted in Nike's competitors taking a subtle jab, including Boston Celtics guard Terry Rozier.
