Sucker pays over $10G to watch Zion Williamson play for seconds

2019-02-21

Zion Williamson, Nike and Duke aren’t the only losers from Wednesday night’s utter disaster.

One fan shelled out $10,652 to watch the most fabled college baller in history play 33 seconds, destroy his shoddy Nike shoe and limp off without returning to the floor.

No highlight reel dunks or blocks. Nada. Just UNC taking down a Zion-less Duke squad, 88-72.

As of Tuesday, that was the most expensive ticket sold for the No. 1 Duke vs. No. 8 North Carolina clash, according to online ticket reseller Vivid Seats. The cheapest ticket a day before the game went for $2,900.

These ballooned numbers are no surprise, seeing as according to SeatGeek, ticket prices are up an average of 178 percent when Duke is in town.

Well, the sight of Zion grimacing in pain before leaving the Cameron Court for good will likely stick with each attendee forever.

Now, if only they could get their money back.
