Zion Williamson not worrying about ‘Zion Cam’ controversy
All eyes remain on Zion Williamson at the NCAA Tournament, but the man himself is keeping impressively calm under the circumstances.
The latest Zion-related firestorm is not one of his own making. CBS debuted “Zion Cam” in Duke’s first round win over North Dakota State, a camera that followed Williamson wherever he was on the court. Several NBA players were critical of the fact that CBS could do this, but Williamson couldn’t be compensated for anything as a college athlete.
Williamson’s take on that? It isn’t much of one.
Zion on whether it’s fair that CBS can follow him around with the Zion-cam while not being compensated: “Like my mom taught me, worry about the things you can control.”

It’s a really impressive quality that Williamson can remain so calm and relaxed with all eyes on him, and it’s one of the many things that makes him such a great player. His mindset looks good heading into the Blue Devils’ second round game against UCF.
