And despite fouling out, he didn't disappoint.
Following Duke's victory at MSG on Thursday night, Williamson was asked about the possibility of playing for the Knicks.
"Forty-one games at the Garden, I mean, it would probably be incredible", the projected top-five National Basketball Association draft pick said after helping Duke come back for a 69-58 win over Texas Tech.

A major driver of the growing gender gap has been a widening disparity between men's and women's economic participation. Pakistan made some good progress this year in wage equality as well as on the educational attainment sub-index.
Just because Texas Tech lost its best player from a year ago and another to the first round in the NBA Draft, it doesn't mean it is an easy out. When Williamson went out, his fellow freshmen stars picked up the slack. When it was done, Duke had ended the game on a 16-3 run after trailing 55-53 with around six minutes left.
Williamson finished with 17 points, 13 rebounds and this monster alley-oop in transition to give the MSG crowd their money's worth. The Blue Devils missed their first 15 shots from beyond the arc Thursday, finishing a terrible 3-for-20 from deep on the night.
Had this been earlier in the season, Barrett most likely would have forced up that first shot as he was doubled team, which could have lead to a run out for Texas Tech as they could have tied the game with a 3-pointer. The Red Raiders led 29-28 at halftime and extended their lead to 42-34 in the first eight minutes of the second half.
But the Blue Devils hung on without their star. Texas Tech finished shooting 38.6 percent from the field.
Jarrett Culver led the Red Raiders with 25 points. He also turned the ball over six times. The key to this game will be whether Texas Tech can slow down this Duke offense. He also had five rebounds, two assists, two steals, and two blocks.
