Zion Williamson's knee injury 33 seconds into Wednesday's Duke-North Carolina game got Twitter humming among current and former NBA players. Many of them took direct aim at the NCAA system that makes hundreds of millions of dollars off athletes while paying them no salary.

Last season's EuroLeague MVP Luka Doncic suggested a professional alternative to the NCAA.

Jay Williams, a former Duke star himself, said the time is now to once again allow players to be drafted into the NBA straight out of high school.

Some current players recommended that Williamson shut his season down now in preparation for June's draft.
