Zion Williamson calls NBA debut 'a lot of fun' after dazzling dunk

Zion Williamson calls NBA debut 'a lot of fun' after dazzling dunk”

Zion Williamson #1 of the New Orleans Pelicans talks with Cameron Reddish #22 of the Atlanta Hawks after a pre-season game on October 7, 2019 at State Farm Arena in Atlanta, Georgia. Veteran holdover Jrue Holiday had 21 points in 18 minutes.

Welcome to the NBA, Zion Williamson.

The Zo-Zion show is officially underway in New Orleans, and the young duo did not disappoint in their first game together. Let's start with these two points, less than two minutes into his career.

DeAndre Bembry led the Hawks with 16 points, while John Collins added 13 points and five rebounds.

The No.1 draft pick was less than two minutes into his debut against the Atlanta Hawks when he took a hand-off and powered his way to the bucket before finishing with a right-handed slam.

"It was a lot of fun", Williamson said afterward.

Williamson exploded onto a pass from outside the three-point line, before accelerating into the paint past three Atlanta defenders. In fact, a ccording to Smith, Williamson has to "find a niche" for his game to be recognized in the league as nobody else plays the way he does. And we should have expected it because this team is still one of the youngest teams in the National Basketball Association in both age and experience, especially if you take Vince Carter out as the clear outlier.

Showing the same explosiveness we saw throughout his season at Duke, Williamson absolutely threw down the hammer in the first quarter.

But then, who cares? Get used to seeing them for a long time to come.

Gentry knows that, like it or not, the comparisons between Williamson and that California-based star, LeBron James, have already begun. Considering most of Zion's high-flying dunks will come in transition, he and Ball will be ideal together.
