Nolan Elingburg, an associate director for the Blue Devil Network, and his wife Danielle are Duke basketball superfans. Because of that, they called on megastar Zion Williamson to help out with a big announcement.
Danielle is pregnant with the couple’s child, so they decided to ask Williamson to assist with their gender reveal.
Of course, because this is Zion Williamson we are talking about, he helped Nolan and Danielle out by using his athleticism and dunking ability to show of whether the couple will be welcoming a boy or a girl to the world.
You can check out the gender reveal below.

Congratulations to the happy couple on their future boy. And we have to be honest, the video looks a lot better with blue in the Duke facility than it would have with pink.
Williamson, meanwhile, is expected to be the No. 1 overall pick in the upcoming NBA Draft. The No. 1 pick will be determined on Tuesday, May 14 in the NBA Draft Lottery. The 2019 NBA Draft takes place Thursday, June 20 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. The draft will be broadcast live on ESPN.
