Most of us sat down for Zion Williamson’s announcement, were greatly surprised when he picked Duke and got on with our lives.

Not so for Zion himself.

Turns out he’s gotten a fair amount of hate for picking Duke over Clemson and South Carolina (in fairness he would’ve gotten it from the fans of the home state school he didn’t choose too had he picked Clemson or South Carolina).

He’s smart enough to know it’ll get better in time but it can’t be much fun to get that kind of animosity for picking an out of state school.
