Is Zion Williamson a future star or a current star?

Williamson might be the most coveted rookie since LeBron James. James was already one of the league’s best players in his first year. Can Zion do the same? In New Orleans, Williamson will have the floor to himself. He’s surrounded by a growing core that complements him well, and the Pelicans have an outside chance at making the playoffs. That only happens if Zion is ready right now.

Zion scored 93 points on 49 shots in his four preseason games. His true shooting percentage is 76 percent, which would set the NBA record by six percentage points if duplicated for an entire season. Williamson looks amazing, and he's just getting started.
