Zion Williamson Could Be Greatest Player In Duke History, Says Dahntay Jones

Steve Kerr Zion Williamson Le Bron James Warriors

To be fair, by the time Zion's a free agent, Kerr with his back issues might not even still be coaching, assuming that's over five years from now. The Cavs are 1-10 this season, mired in a post-LeBron James morass of awfulness. Oh my goodness. I probably can't say anything more or mention his name ... He never actually said Zion but implied it by saying "the 285" one. Fellow starters Tre Jones and Marques Bolden and reserves Javin DeLaurier and Alex O'Connell could not provide a scoring jolt, and Williamson and Barrett often found themselves having to do too much, dribbling into traffic and committing several turnovers.

Just like everyone else in the basketball world, Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr was left speechless after watching Duke freshman Zion Williamson put on a show on national television Tuesday night against Kentucky.

The pair combined for 61 points in the rout of Kentucky on opening night, with Barrett scoring 33 points and Williamson adding 28.

Army does have three players who can score at a high level. But a new, more interesting hypothetical posed this week in the wake of Duke's dominant defeat of No. 2 Kentucky is this: Could Duke take down the Cleveland Cavaliers as now constituted?


Although three Duke players finished with four fouls and two more had three, no Blue Devils fouled out as they played through adversity to win easily anyway. Well, this is one heck of a way to kick off their season, a season which should boast some incredible highlights and few losses. That domination will climax with what the Blue Devils hope will be a raised banner in Cameron Indoor.

"We are trying to ignore all the outside noise and just keep focusing on ourselves and trying to get better every single game", Jones said Friday after practice.
