“Dunking is a good highlight, though we are going to go out there and try to win a game, that is some-more important.
“He’s gonna do his job, I’m gonna do my job. Whatever happens, happens.”
And while all eyes will be on both men, Fall pronounced he didn’t wish those dual alone to shroud a essential contest.
“It’s basketball. we don’t wish it to be a freakshow between Zion and I,” he said.
Williamson was done wakeful of Fall’s comments and praised his opposition for adhering adult for himself, personification down a significance of a one-on-one battle.
“What is he ostensible to say? That I’m going to asperse on him?” Williamson told reporters. “He pronounced a right thing. we don’t design anyone to contend I’m only going to asperse them.
