Throughout the game, Williamson showed off his trademark versatility scoring the ball. He laid down his trademark dunks, threw in a few lay-ups and, uh, made some free throws too.

Kidding aside, you don’t need to do much else when you’re capable of throwing it down like this.

Obviously, Williamson still has plenty to work on in expanding his offensive game. The basketball world knew that even as he was making highlight after highlight at Duke and being called a generational prospect in the draft process.

However, Williamson provided a decent explanation Wednesday of why — even when other parts of his game are a work in progress — he’s still so exciting. With all the caveats of a preseason game, he is going to run the floor, bully his way in the paint and throw down dunks with the best of them from the get-go.

Like Williamson, the Pelicans still have a lot of work to do, given that they were down 107-86 heading into the fourth quarter and only won on a furious charge from their second unit. That doesn’t mean they shouldn’t be a top option for League Pass users across the country.

Under head coach Alvin Gentry, the Pelicans are set to be one of the fastest-paced, transition-attacking teams in the league and Williamson is the fast-twitch bowling ball running through the paint that will lead the charge.

Celtics, Zion remain sizzling to start preseason .
Preseason numbers often mean almost nothing. Rotations are unusual, starters rarely play much, and few if any teams are putting a premium on winning games. As such, it's tough to glean much from exhibition stats. But what the Boston Celtics and New Orleans rookie Zion Williamson — the No. 1 pick in this year's draft — have been doing so far in the preseason certainly stands out. The Celtics are 3-0 after beating Cleveland on Sunday — and have put together a huge run in all three of those games. The latest was a 50-17 spurt against the Cavaliers, a game that was close for most of the first quarter before Boston built what eventually became a 54-point lead.
