Zlatan Ibrahimovic picks his NCAA tournament bracket winner

What if Zlatan Ibrahimovic had picked basketball instead of soccer? It's not hard to imagine, as the 6-foot-5 Swede has the size to hang with elite basketball players.

Of course, going with soccer didn't turn out so badly for him, and now that he's fully settled stateside, Ibrahimovic was asked to fill out a bracket for the upcoming NCAA men's basketball tournament, which begins this week, by The Dan Patrick Show.

Ever the iconoclast, Ibra's pick to win it all is another dominant player whose name starts with a Z.

He probably can't win a pool with that bracket, but he could very well be right that Duke's Zion Williamson becomes the true star of the tournament. Time will tell.
