Zion Williamson’s Shoe Fail
Zero Impact on Nike

Not even Zion Williamson‘s shoe falling apart on national TV could sway hoopers from the Swoosh … so says Dahntay Jones, who tells TMZ Sports Nike will face ZERO backlash for the incident.
As we previously reported … Nike execs held an emergency meeting after the most popular college basketball player had his PG 2.5 sneaker give out just 30 seconds into the Duke/UNC game.
But, Jones — who played at Duke from 2001-03 — says all the flippin’ out is unnecessary, ’cause there’s no way athletes will turn their backs on Nike over a “freak accident.”
“Nike’s been the best in shoes for years, especially basketball shoes,” Jones says.
DJ also weighs in on whether Z-Dub should call it a season and start prepping for the draft.
We also spoke to Kenny Smith — who previously told us Zion needs to sharpen his iron and continue to play (prior to Wednesday’s injury).
Check out if he’s changed his mind.
