This young man is only beginning. I am happy that he is representing my home state of South Carolina. He even mentioned my birthplace of Florence SC and the legendary McCleud Park where he played.. (Kinda like our own Rucker Park) I took in the NCAA Tournament Game featuring Zion’s Duke Blue Devils versus Central Florida Golden Knights. He’s 6’7 280 lbs (looks 250) with the power of a line backer with point guard skills… What I saw was absolutely ridiculous. You see his game on television and you see how he covers ground in a half court set… He beats people to spots pretty effortlessly, and he loves to play defense. Duke went on to defeat UCF in a thriller and I was having a thought if his team loses, this could very well be the last time he is in that uniform. I was also thinking that he already has the number one spot in the NBA draft, and a ping pong machine is going to pick him because nobody is passing on Zion with that pick, You just want to see him do well. He is such an example of what achieving your dreams are about.
Zion talking about my hometown Florence SC! (:
