It’s only preseason. The games don’t matter, young players are on the court, and the veterans are often going through the motions. We all know we shouldn’t take too much away from these games.
Yet, in his last two games, Zion Williamson has a combined 55 points on 21-of-25 shooting (1-of-1 from three) with eight rebounds. He has gotten to the line 17 times in those two games. That includes 26 points on Friday night against the Jazz.
That man is a beast already.
He’s a rookie, he’s got holes in his game, there are going to be ups and downs. We understand that.
But you can’t take your eyes off him. And while it’s just preseason, he is impressing.
