Zippy Zion

By: Logan Davis

    Every sports fan has been waiting on the NBA to start, and the preseason is finally here. There are a lot of hot takes about players and teams, and its no surprise that Zion Williamson is one of them. Many people thought Zion wouldn’t be good once he got into college, and they were wrong. Then, they said he wouldn’t be good once he got into the NBA, and once again he proved them wrong. In the preseason games, he has been averaging 23.3 points per game. Since the 2005-2006 season, no rookie has averaged 20 points per game. The closest person to doing that was Kevin Durant, who is one of the best players in the league with 18.8 points per game. Not only is Zion averaging 23.3 points per game, but he is doing it on 71.4 percent shooting. There’s no doubt that Zion will be a good addition to his team, but only time will tell exactly how good he will be.
