Don’t jump! That’s something every high school kid who faced off against 16-year old Zion Williamson learned this year. It’s also something a few grown men learned this past weekend when they tried to compare their old-man hops with Zion’s young hops. But getting dunked on is OK when it’s for a good cause. The Ball4Good celeb basketball game, which was organized by 7th grader Adom Appiah of Spartanburg Day School, raised $8,500 to benefit the Boys and Girls Clubs of the Upstate.
“It means a lot to take time out of my schedule and come out here to have fun and support our community,” said Williamson. who also put on an impressive dunk exhibition at halftime.
Other known locals that participated in the event included Spartanburg County Councilman Michael Brown, Spartanburg District 7 Superintendent Russell Booker and former NFL players Landon Cohen and D.J. Moore.
