When Zion Williamson's Nike shoe literally exploded against North Carolina, it shocked the world. Never before had we seen a college athlete be so powerful that he literally broke a shoe with how hard he cut. While some of the blame for the incident can be attributed to Williamson's sheer power, most of it is likely due to a defect in his Nike kicks.
In an effort to troll Nike, Williamson recently on Instagram Live wearing nothing but Adidas gear. A big middle finger to Nike, it sure seems like we have a better idea of which company will sign with once he declares for the NBA Draft this spring.

Williamson is not the only one who has come at Nike. Skechers released a campaign poking fun at the Swoosh's "Just Do It." slogan. Take a look below:
All of this trolling is all in good fun, but when Williamson's shoe busted, he got hurt. Since leaving that game against UNC on Feb. 20, Williamson has not been able to play and has been officially ruled out for Saturday's rematch against UNC. Duke
