If you combine a 7’6″ guy named Tacko, Jim Nantz, Duke, Coach K, Zion Williamson, the guy who brought Duke into prominence in the 1980s and throw them into a game that’s on just before 60 Minutes, you’re going to get a game that has the attention of the NSFWBDs who can’t get enough of the big man vs. the privileged private school.
There’s the obvious fascination with a guy who doesn’t have to jump to block shots or dunk and then you get the fascination with Zion possibly dunking on the 7-foot-6 giant in the middle who has some coordination troubles, which makes sense since the guy doesn’t need a ladder to cut down nets.
Gotta say here I’m surprised by the number of BDs who aren’t Tacko fans. I thought the novelty of the big man would have them rooting for the big guy. That’s not the case. There’s some legit Tacko hate out there.
