Listen: Nike, Brad, Zion Williamson discussed on RJ Bell's Dream Preview
"So all of a sudden Nike needs guy like Zion Williamson to sign with them desperately. So not a guy like him. There's one person that can insa-, you know, what it's like imagine. If you went in for lace. Surgery on your eyes, and we're not hoping for this. But through some mishap, you're blinded in your left eye now. It sounds crazy. But if you went into gear, right I done you went to the same surgeon. You'd be like that dude believes in Bali. There was a fluke. I think it's good to see. So the guy blew out of the shoe blue Audi hurt himself a could have been serious if he goes back to Nike would is say says everything's fine. Everything's not wasn't. I guess fall happen. I can just see a meeting and Nike. So the RJ bell. In charge of the marketing department is meeting with the fezzet, and he's sitting them down saying fezzet, we need you like you've got a patch over you're fine. Make it happen. I mean, there's a premium you agree with that. Right. Absolutely. And and because it's a marketplace. There's a premium with Adidas imagine the commercial, right? You see and blown out is. And then they shooed they they kinda scan in you see the Nike logo, and you see him limping, and then all of a sudden you see them like slamming over everyone with your deed issues. Okay. Now, Brad our ask you this question for Zeon play again this season. What is required of him? Is that the pair Nikes again mumbled that because you don't want people to hear it say police enunciate Zion is gonna have to put on I pair of Nikes again and play them. Yep. So at that point if he does that at the end if arrives. At the end of the season cost millions at the end of the season. How does that affect his leverage doesn't have the leverage anymore because he's already endorsed Nike? And he has no choice. I mean, do we even have to go on? You on the debate. But I mean what what's what odds do you need? That's that's what I need to know. First off. Let's hear from the producers. I mean was that was that like the worst ever or what? I agree with Brad you on the debate. But I wanna bet that he'll play again, no doubt about it. Why? He's he's going to play. I know you people tend to just repeat the same words. Why? The national he wants to play with his teammates. He's been on team mates since he's been with how long since they decided last spring last fall sign on with Duke together. So they decided last spring last fall to sign on Duke together. So you're saying less than a year. Over tens of millions of dollars. But keep in mind. These kids are playing with one another and AAU Bali known each other for more than just a year RJ, which means that they don't need to be on the same team to fuel camaraderie that if anything a you is made these players mercenary. Right. Yeah. I don't think it's built team. I think it's torn it apart and the one and done has torn it apart. And we certainly know this. All right. So what would you put the odds at well? Let me caveat this because I believe that the media's no, no, no different question. If you were booking and you booked for awhile pinnacle if you were booking would is the book making line on him pliant. I believe I'm said, no vague line. Here's I believe he's favored to come back maya's five hundred other direction, plus five hundred won't come back. Okay. Does that feel like the right line? Yup. I would you take a bad at that lineup.."
