Lakers superstar LeBron James appears to be a fan of Zion Williamson, as he took a private jet with his camp (as well as Rajon Rondo and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope) to Charlottesville just to watch him play a few weeks back.
So when Williamson had his sneaker blow apart during Wednesday’s game against UNC, causing him to suffer a knee sprain, James made sure to wish Williamson well immediately after he got hurt.
Not only that, James actually found some similarities between his groin injury and Williamson’s knee injury. They’re completely different issues, but it was kind of a bang-bang type of injury, so James likened Williamson’s injury to the one he suffered against the Warriors on Christmas Day.
Classic LeBron — always injecting himself in the center of any pieces of news.
