Dec 21, 2018 2:07 AM

Zion Williamson was impressed by the atmosphere at Madison Square Garden in Duke's 69-58 win over Texas Tech.

Williamson added, "this is the Garden. A lot of greats have come through here. My favorite great to come through here was probably Bernard King because my stepdad talked about him a lot how he just put the ball in the basket...playing 41 games here wouldn't be so bad".

Williamson finished with 17 points and 13 rebounds in the game with several NBA executives, including Knicks president Steve Mills, in attendance.
