Thanks to the largess of our buddies, Russ & Jean Hall, The Duchess and I spent yesterday afternoon at Cameron Indoor Stadium, watching Duke basketball. While this was only an exhibition game against a Division II team, Ferris State, it did offer the chance to watch Zion WIlliamson in action. Mr Williamson, in case you haven’t heard, is an 18 year old, 285 pound (not a misprint), 6 ft 7 in beast whose dunks and rebounds are freakish. He also accelerates like mad, shoots from anywhere, and hustles – scary, eh? Now, a game against a Division II team does not establish one’s credentials as a star, but yesterday’s exhibition did make a great case for Zion WIlliamson as the preemptive favorite as The College Basketball Player Most Fun To Watch.
