Less than a month ago, we were debating whether or not Zion Williamson was going to or should participate in the NCAA Tournament after his shoe ripped and he hurt his knee in a rivalry game against North Carolina. But, Zion made his return in the ACC tournament and dominated. Why? Because he wanted a chance to be part of a historic run and help lead The Duke Blue Devils to a National Title. Zion and Duke face off against North Dakota State Friday in the first game of the tournament, and for the first time ever there will be a new camera dedicated to one player. This camera being dubbed by man as “The Zion Cam” will follow him and focus solely on Zion the whole game.
According to Via Josh Kendall of The State:
“Because of Zion (Williamson), we have added a camera dedicated to him the whole time he is on the floor,” said [CBS producer Marc] Wolff, who has risen to be the network’s coordinating producer of college basketball. “We hired a cameraman, a camera, a digital tape machine to record everything he does.”
That’s never happened before in Wolff’s time with the network, he said, which probably means it has never happened before. Williamson is having that kind of impact on college basketball this season.
Wolff said that they also recorded Zion’s practice with the team on Thursday and that they were “monitoring Zion 24-7.” This brings the debate again, with the amount of money that The NCAA and CBS are making Zion won’t get a dollar.
