Zion Williamson injured as shoe falls apart vs. UNC

Zion Williamson broken shoe

Duke Blue Devils superstar Zion Williamson suffered a leg injury in the opening minute of Wednesday night's college basketball game against rival North Carolina when his shoe fell apart.

As Williamson tried to plant his left foot to change the direction of his dribble, his foot slid and the sole separated from the rest of the shoe. Williams nearly did a split as he fell to the ground awkwardly and winced in pain as he grabbed the back of his right knee.

Former President Barack Obama was at the game, with a seat behind the Duke bench, and immediately saw what we all saw:

It appears as though Williamson was wearing a Paul George model of Nike shoe. This is not going to be good press for them, especially if the injury keeps him out for an extended period of time.

At the very least, Williamson has been ruled out for the rest of the game.
