Zion Williamson hasn't seen the basketball court since Duke was eliminated by Michigan State in the Elite Eight of the 2019 NCAA Tournament. But fans have been starving to watch him play again, and they're willing to pay out the nose to see him live.
With Zion slated to join the Pelicans at Summer League in Las Vegas this summer, tickets for the games are flying onto the secondary market.
The latest ticket prices on Seatgeek in early July are going for a minimum of $130 per ticket.
To put those numbers into perspective, prices for Summer League games where Zion won't be playing are starting at between $7 and $50.
The immense popularity of Zion Williamson can hardly be overstated.
Even before he was drafted No. 1 overall by the Pelicans, the belief that he'd join the team was enough for thousands of fans to buy season tickets to their games.
In the week after being drafted, Zion shattered merchandise sales records by selling more jerseys and shirts than every other NBA draft lottery selection combined.
He's already won over New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees, who has already "passed the torch" to him.
Zion Williamson is quickly becoming one of the most must-see athletes in America, but with college stats like his, it's easy to see why.
