Zion Williamson is one of the most electric players we have seen in college basketball in recent years. The Duke Blue Devils star is a projected No. 1 pick in the 2019 NBA Draft and he appears to already be looking at potential fits in the pros.
Following a game last week against the No. 12 Texas Tech Red Raiders, Williamson shared his thoughts on playing at Madison Square Garden.
“It is the Garden,” Williamson said, via Newsday. “It’s where big-time players are made . . . And the environment was crazy.”

He continued to discuss the New York Knicks, saying he would “love” to play for the franchise if they put their trust in him.
“If they draft me, I would love to play for the Knicks,” Williamson said. “I don’t really care where I go — it’s just the experience of being in the NBA. Whoever wants me and sees the most in me, that’s who I want to play for.”
“It was electric. It’s Madison Square Garden. Every kid wants to play here. It was really fun,” Barrett said. “It would be fun to have every home game here and like that. I could get used to that.”
The Knicks currently sit at 9-25 on the season and are just one game ahead of last place in the Eastern Conference.
If the team decides to tank the rest of the season, they could find themselves in line to draft the 6-foot-8 athletic freak who would love to put on a show time and time again in their home arena.
