2019 Summer League Game 1: Much ballyhooed Zion Williamson debut is finally here!

Zion vs RJ Barrett — this should be fun!

New Orleans Pelicans New Players

The new era of basketball for the New Orleans Pelicans is about to begin in the middle of a sweltering desert in July, but don’t tell fans it’s some meaningless game. The excitement has been at a 10 since the Draft Lottery and it’s probably never going to abate — Yes, Zion Williamson is that special!!!

The Duke Blue Devils were the three amigos before the 2018-19 college season began, but not long thereafter, Zion quickly became the one-man show in the NCAAs, ending up on SportsCenter highlights after every game.

Tonight’s matchup against the New York Knicks features Zion battling a former teammate and great friend in RJ Barrett, and if you believe wallets do most of the talking, Las Vegas is on the edge of their seats. Tickets to today’s slate of summer league games have been sold out for quite some time!

So after reading through Preston’s preview, sit back, relax, and enjoy Zion for an expected 24-28 minutes today. I bet he’ll do at least one thing on the court that makes you smile bigger than the Grinch in December.

Let’s Dance!!!
