Nike Done Fucked Up!!
Overall, the massive big man was ready to duel against the enemy. However, he sustained a knee injury in the first minute of the game. Furthermore, the 285 pounds forward injury cost them the game. Not only did the injury make Duke lose big time, but trolls also took to Twitter to blame Nike for the mishap. In addition, Nike is surely going to have to answer for this happening.
That the shoe blew out on National TV. That the shoe blew out for Duke-UNC. That the shoe blew out on Zion Williamson. Awful look for Nike.
