Zion just literally exploded through his shoe and seemed to hurt his opposite ankle as a result. He got himself off-court, so seemingly not too serious, but dang. Never seen someone blow through their own shoe.

I have, but it was a MUCH cheaper and older shoe haha. Between the ball-denting, the charge that lifted a 7-footer off the ground, and this, he really is the new Bo Jackson. Hope he's ok.
Yeah, he really is a freakish specimen. Hope it's nothing more than a sprain!

Me too, but even if it's not I hope he refuses to play until he's paid appropriately to do it. Absurd to have to take risks like that so you can promote somebody else's shoe deal.

 Not a good look for Nike. He's should try Reebok.

Reebok should spend a fortune to sign him and use him to rip Nike in commercials over this.

There is a lot of money being bet on this game.

It would not be too hard to sabotage a shoe.

Knee sprain apparently. Not too serious but he'd do well to make sure it's totally right before he risks himself and his future.
Any odd typos are because I suck at typing on an iPhone :D

so far, Zions opponents were skinny highschool Kids... he'll be up against serious athletes in the nba. lets see how that works out.
and as I said in another thread... his knees will be screwed if he stays that heavy.
Disappointment is anger for wimps.

Heís not fat, so he has plenty of muscle to support his knees.

Iím always more concerned with guys like Porzingis who are frail.


Nikeís marketing is pretty incredible, they could create his own line and use this as a campaign for him.

Zion reminds me and like a billion other people of Bo Jackson, and the thing about Bo was his body was so strong and athletic it could exert incredible amounts of force, and when he got tangled up in an awkward way, it exerted that force against itself and destroyed his hip.  I see Zion as similar - basketball doesn't have the same physical risks as football, but he's going to be prone to some gnarly injuries. Hope it doesn't happen though, really like the kid. But his trainers/people should consider it and so should he.

Maybe they should spend less on their ďpretty incredibleĒ marketing and more on their r and d. They are taking a major hit for this on social and print media. Washington Post came out with article within moments of the incident.

Nike has a market cap of $133 billion dollars. Pre-market, the stock is indicating that it is going to open about 1.5% lower.

Think about that: Zion already has so much influence that, when his shoe ripped, he knocked $2 billion out of the value of a company.
