New Orleans Pelicans fans loved their first look at Zion Williamson on their home court as he starred against the Utah Jazz.
In 28 minutes of action, Pelicans forward Zion Williamson scored 16 points and had seven rebounds and three assists in his NBA debut.
"We want Zion to be the best Zion Williamson that he can be. Not anybody else," said Alvin Gentry about LeBron James comparisons.
"Last year, I was impressed with the number of people who came out, but this year was a completely different animal," Alvin Gentry said.
The reports says Ball used the money he embezzled to buy cars and make “upgrades to his home."
"I've been working on it all summer — as soon as I could get back on the court — trying to get it on the right side," Ball said Wednesday.
Once preseason play begins on Friday, plenty of rookies will be set loose so they can show what they can do before rotations are narrowed.
Despite being the No.1 pick in the draft, Zion Williamson shows no sign of feeling the pressure ahead of his debut season in the NBA.
"It's a fun process. I'm 19. Like two years ago I was a senior in high school and now I'm sitting here," Williamson said.
"He has his ways, I have mine. We just got into it," Lonzo said after LaVar called him "damaged goods" on the "Ball in the Family" show.
