NBA fans, Zion Williamson has arrived. The No. 1 overall pick is taking part in the preseason for the Pelicans, and he showed just what made him the most hyped up high school and college basketball player of his era. Williamson was lights out, dropping 29 points at an unheard of 92% clip. That's right, Zion only missed one shot all night.
The Bulls had no answer for Williamson as he dominated them in the interior. He teamed up with Lonzo Ball for a sensational alley oop early on, and from there it was game over.
While it's only a preseason game, this just shows that Williamson is an incredibly efficient scorer and is capable of stuffing up the stat sheet. Who puts up almost 30 points while only missing ONE shot?!
Zion does, and Pels fans should get used to the ultra-efficient rookie rocking the rim on a regular basis. He won't be taking many outside jumpers, but when you can absorb contact and finish as ferociously as Williamson can, who needs a jumper?
This outing comes on the tail of a 28-point showcase against the Hawks in his preseason debut, so he's averaging a cool 28.5 points per game through two preseason games. Not bad for the kid being coveted as a generational talent.
He might just have it in him to outlive the lofty expectations placed upon him.
