Paul George Reaches out to NIKE Following Zion Williamson Injury

Paul George is all about the brand.

On Wednesday night, in a nationally televised spectacle, Duke Blue Devils super prospect Zion Williamson injured his knee, after his foot tore through his sneaker on a cut. The shoes he was rocking were the PG 2.5 sneakers, George’s signature kicks. Williamson was diagnosed with a mild knee sprain following the awkward spill.

“I don’t necessarily know what happened, how it happened. I talked to Nike to see what went wrong, what happened with the shoe and I take pride in that. My shoes have been a successful shoe not only in college but in the NBA. A lot of people have been in them, a lot of people have been wearing them. So I don’t necessarily know, but it’s never happened to my knowledge before,” said George.

NIKE is the official sneaker partner for Duke University.

“We are obviously concerned and want to wish Zion a speedy recovery. The quality and performance of our products are of utmost importance. While this is an isolated occurrence, we are working to identify the issue,” said Nike in a statement.

George also reached out to Duke head coach Mike Krzyzewski to check in on Williamson’s injury status.
