After a team loses, there's lots of chatter about what went wrong: too many turnovers, not enough defense, or bad shots. Rarely, does a shoe get blamed for ruining a highly-anticipated basketball game-until now. Duke basketball player Zion Williamson was injured after his shoe exploded during the team's matchup against North Carolina, and fans are blaming Nike, United States Toda y reported.
Onlookers watched as Williamson fell to the floor less than a minute into the game. Footage shows the athlete grabbing his knees and his blown apart Nike shoe, which slipped off his foot. The shoe worn by Williamson is the Nike PG 2.5 PE, USA Today reported.
