Video: LaMelo Ball, Zion Williamson go head-to-head in Adidas Uprising Summer Championship game

Zion Williamson, LaMelo Ball

Two of the best high school prospects in the country in LaMelo Ball and Zion Williamson finally went head-to-head in a jam-packed, nearly-cancelled Adidas Uprising Summer Championship game, providing plenty of highlights to go with the hype.

The likes of Damian Lillard, Andrew Wiggins, Thon Maker, and Jamal Murray were present at the event, along with Ball’s older brother Lonzo, who sat courtside for the big show.

Williamson started off the show with his usual pre-game dunk-contest-like throwdowns, getting the crowd on its feet.

He soon showed what it’s like when you get the NBA2K18 pre-order edition with extra currency to spend on your handles (finish with layup, because dunks are too expensive right now).

Ball wouldn’t fall shy in that department, breaking ankles in a half-court set.

Williamson’s finishing is already terrific, even at 17 years of age.

Ball showed some finishing skills of his own with this hanging right-handed layup. Count it!

The intimidation is real.

But ultimately Williamson took the game with this LeBron-esque right-handed tomahawk to seal the win. And-one!
