Zion Williamson is a rookie with little experience under his belt, but what he is doing on the court for the New Orleans Pelicans already is just astonishing.
On Sunday as the Pelicans battled the Golden State Warriors, Williamson showed off his rare abilities in a dominant sequence that illustrates to perfection why he’s so unstoppable. At the line for a free throw, Zion grabbed the rebound off his own miss, put up a layup that missed, ripped the ball out of the arms of a Warriors player and went up again with authority to finally put the ball into the hoop.
Bully is exactly the correct word. Zion is so agile for a man of his size, and his power is astounding. No wonder a simple jab step earlier in the game sent a defender sprawling.
