Duke gave Zion Williamson three cars and a house worth almost a million dollars.

The allegations made by Gina Ford against Williamson cannot be verified as the case is currently ongoing.

The allegations made by Gina Ford against Williamson cannot be verified as the case is currently ongoing. Gina Ford, the former marketing agent for Zion Williamson, NBA basketball player, has claimed that Williamson and his parents had received improper benefits to influence Williamson to wear Nike or Adidas products and to attend Duke University.

In her lawsuit, Ford claims that the three luxury cars registered to Williamson's parents justified the discovery of the improper benefits and asked that those vehicles impact Williamson's eligibility to remain as a student-athlete. Ford attorneys showed improved housing situation of Zion Williamson's parents, saying that his parents were earlier living in an $895 rented house in South Carolina, and now they were living in a home worth $950,000, that cost nearly $4995 per month in rent. (Scroll through the uploaded twitter). Ford also showed text messages between Nike officials discussing payment to Zion in 2017 and says Williamson is permanently ineligible to be a student-athlete. Lawyers also urged an investigation in the pay to play issue.

However, there is no credible evidence to prove that the three cars registered under Williamson's parent's name were the improper benefits, as claimed by Ford, and are worth almost a million dollars, as the trail is still going.
