Looks Like Zion’s And RJ’s Friendship Endures

Duke’s Dynamic Duo will be on different NBA teams but still tight.

One of the best things about this past season was the friendship between Zion Williamson and RJ Barrett. It was really cool to see two guys who were so used to being the star be willing to defer to each other and not only that, to generate a chemistry that really took the whole team on a great ride.

They’ve talked wistfully about playing together again and if they do it’s going to be a great story.

In the meantime, they are still supporting and cheering each other on as Zion does here for RJ.

In the annals of Duke basketball, only the Gene Banks/Kenny Dennard bond is comparable.
