Zion Williamson And LaMelo Ball Played An AAU Game In July And Everyone Was Watching

Zion Williamson and LaMelo Ball are two of the biggest names in high school basketball right now, and on Wednesday night their teams faced off in an AAU matchup. Big Baller Brand and SC Supreme met at the adidas Summer Championships in Las Vegas, and the gym was overfilled 70 minutes before tip-off.

It was so crowded that local cops almost canceled the game because the building had exceeded its capacity.

WilliamsonΒ is widely considered the best player in the 2018 recruiting class, while Ball is the 16th-ranked player in the 2019 class on the 247 composite. Ball has committed to UCLA, while Williamson remains undecided on his future college.

Adidas-sponsored NBA stars like Andrew Wiggins and Damian Lillard were courtside for the game, while Lonzo Ball was there to support his younger brother. Meanwhile, Bill Self, Thon Maker and Jamal Murray all showed up as well.

Williamson is a path to be one of the greatest dunkers in basketball history and he was showing off for the packed crowd during warm-ups:

Everyone was shocked by the atmosphere:

Ballislife live-streamed the game and at one point had more than 77,000 live viewers. Just as a reminder,Β this was an AAU basketball game in late July that tipped off at midnight eastern, and the entire basketball world was focused on it.

Given some of the highlights, I’m actually not shocked:

 

Williamson even iced the game with a steal and a huge dunk:

It was an absolutely crazy atmosphere. In fact, the only person not super-hyped for the matchup seemed to be the son of SC Supreme’s coach:

The game had everything, including a technical foul for LaVar Ball:

SC Supreme came out with the win 104-92, and Williamson posted 31 points and eight rebounds. Meanwhile, LaMelo finished with 36 points, nine rebounds and five assists.
