Zion Williamson is set to burst onto the NBA scene in October, the New Orleans Pelicans already scheduled to play against the Toronto Raptors on opening night (pencil in October 22!). Signing a lucrative deal with the Jordan Brand last month, the 6 ft 7 prodigy from North Carolina is already sparking huge interest in game-worn grails.
The Nike Kyrie 5 PE edition that Zion laced during his time at the Blue Devils sold for a whopping $19,680 this week, the pair originally worn during a Maui Invitational game against the San Diego State Aztecs.
Astute investment or zealous overpay? Only Zion’s career will provide the answers.
