The NBA's top prospect, Zion Williamson, has filed a lawsuit against the NBA after he received word they would be handing down punishments and fines related to his use of a controversial yet 'perfectly legal' supplement.
The moment Zion signed an agent, he was no longer considered an 'amateur' basketball player. The moment he is drafted and signs his rookie contract, the NBA can officially slap him with fines. Last week, NBA officials prepared documentation to hand Zion a $50,000-$100,000 fine and are in talks about a possible suspension. Zion has responded with legal action as there are no clear written rules in the NBA Drug Policy that state the supplement is illegal, despite several of the ingredients being blacklisted when combined with others not used in the supplement.
