There's a term in basketball called a "grown man rebound," but this is so far beyond a grown man rebound I dont even know what to call it. MERCY ZION pic.twitter.com/32jZEgp3Ni

My thoughts and prayers go out to Zion Williamson, the tremendous superstar basketball player from Duke. His injury isn't surprising though once you realize Obama was at the game. Everywhere Obama goes nothing but disappointment and pain follows!!!! Sad!!!!

Duke freshman sensation Zion Williamson was forced out of Wednesday night's game against rival North Carolina after just 36 seconds with what Blue Devils coach Mike Krzyzewski called a "mild knee sprain."
