So Zion Got A Special Birthday Present

New, comment

This is a pretty cool piece of bling.

Zion Williamson has had a lot of fun with the Marvel character Thanos. At Duke he used to look at his fist, a la Thanos. At one point, the Duke social media team put a Thanos-style glove on him in a Twitter video and it was totally awesome.

So what did he get for his 20th birthday?

You guessed it - a Thanos-style fist necklace.

It’s a cool look to say the least.

On the down side, Thanos lost when Tony Stark/Ironman got the glove and snapped him into non-existence.

TMZ beat us to the joke here so we’ll just quote them: “The league better hope the kid doesn’t snap his fingers in Orlando!!!“

Assuming we still see hoops in Orlando that is. Who knows?

One thing’s for sure: it’s going to take a bold guy to take it off of him.
