ZION WILLIAMSON Makes Impressive NBA Debut
Zion Williamson just made his NBA debut with the New Orleans Pelicans and it seems that he only has one goal in mind: for everyone to remember his name!
Basketball fans had to wait months to see the No. 1 overall draft pick and super rookie to finally step on the hardwood and play because of an injury. So of course, his first game ever was well anticipated. And guess what, he didn't disappoint his believers!
Wearing Air Jordan XXXIVs, Zion erupted against the San Antonio Spurs. Although the Pelicans suffered a 121-117 loss, he scored 22 points, 7 rebounds, and 3 assists. Even more impressive? Zion made a really formidable and crazy late run, dropping 17 straight points in just 3:08 in the fourth quarter with 4 out of 4 from the 3-point line. His debut stats were indeed epic!
