New Orleans Pelicans rookie No. 1 overall pick Zion Williamson made his NBA debut against the San Antonio Spurs Wednesday night.

Within the first three minutes of his initial action, Mt. Zion was already out here making highlight-reel plays that defined his short Duke career.

Check out this absolutely jaw-dropping pass to Brandon Ingram for the flush. Just insane.

A man with that size and athletic ability should not be able to pass like he’s Magic Johnson out there. It’s that simple.

Williamson’s return for the resurgent Pelicans could very well lead to a surprise playoff appearance. His initial regular-season action as a member of the team magnifies that further.
