ZION’S MOM WAS ACCUSED OF TAKING BRIBES FROM NIKE
Nowadays, everyone suspects that the elite college hoopers are involved in receiving financial benefits. Like most top-level prospects, Zion (even more so) was under the microscope.
Rumors surfaced that Zion had been receiving cash under the table when an attorney name Michael Avenatti accused Zion’s mom of taking money for “consulting services” from Nike that really served as a bribe to get Zion to commit to Duke. While Duke is apparently investigating the matter, many feel it’s a false accusation that served as a publicity stunt.
