In the past, the NBA Summer League was met with minimal fanfare, as basketball fans await the regular season. That all changed once Zion Williamson entered the league. The first overall pick is set to make his New Orleans Pelicans debut on Friday night against the New York Knicks. Williamson was known for his vicious dunks ever since he went viral in high school. During warmups, Williamson brought fans to their feet with an off the backboard, one-handed dunk.
The height. The aggressiveness. The landing.
Williamson is easily the most hyped prospect since LeBron James, and fans are losing their minds over his hyper-athletic dunks in warmups. Just wait until the regular season, the crowd in New Orleans will be going nuts!
The highly-anticipated debut of Williamson is clear, as Las Vegas sold more seats than ever as enamored fans clamor to witness the first NBA action of the next heralded superstar. Hopefully he pulls out a massive dunk in the game, as the crowd reaction would truly be a spectacle.
