Video: Zion Williamson’s farewell game in high school
As the basketball season of Spartanburg Day School came to an end over the weekend, so was the career of Zion Williamson with them — the teenager who is widely regarded as one of the best high school players in the country today.
Instead of it being a sad day for their basketball program, the 17-year-old put on an unforgettable show for his schoolmates and fans. Williamson showed off his impressive skill set, which has made him one of the most sought-after talents for the NCAA, and proved why many already think of him as an NBA-ready prospect even at a young age.
The reaction of those who watched the game says it all as they were left in awe of his high-flying ways and ability to finish strong to the basket for vicious dunks. Williamson has already committed to join the Duke Blue Devils for the next collegiate season and he will be one of their three five-star recruits along with Canada’s R.J. Barrett and Cameron Reddish from Westtown School.
While it appeared like Williamson was in a slam dunk competition, he does have more to his game than electrifying throwdowns. He will have a chance to show everyone that he is a threat on both ends of the floor once he starts his college career.
With his two equally-talented teammates, along with Hall of Fame coach Mike Krzyzewski, the 6-foot-6 forward will definitely become an even better player and should be a lottery pick once he declares for the NBA Draft possibly in 2019.
