Zion Williamson can do it all. The presumptive first pick in the NBA draft helped out a friend with a Duke-related gender reveal.
Gender reveals are an odd new phenomenon on social media, but if you’re going to do it, you might as well do it big. How much bigger can you get than Zion Williamson?
Williamson helped out a Blue Devil Network employee with his gender reveal. Nolan Elingburg, an associate director with Blue Devil Network, and his wife, Danielle, had Williamson dunk a ball revealing the gender of the couple’s baby.

Upon dunking, blue confetti flew and the Elingburgs learned they were having a boy. Blue Devils head coach Mike Krzyzewski should start recruiting this kid as soon as he’s old enough to hold a basketball.
While Williamson is killing time until the NBA draft, every team in the lottery is praying to snag the first overall pick. The New York Knicks finished the season with the worst record in the league, but only have a 14% chance at securing the top spot in the lottery.
In order to land that pick, the Knicks are doing everything they possibly can. Team president Steve Mills and general manager Scott Perry told ESPN’s “The Michael Kay Show” that they would be praying for that pick.
Gender reveals are great, but the lottery is the reveal Knicks fans really want to see.
