Zion Williamson, RJ Barrett Make Electric Yet Strange Pro Debuts

It was billed to be a night of kings.

With LeBron James, DeMar DeRozan, and Anthony Davis all in attendance, the NBA world bear witness to the professional debuts of Zion Williamson and RJ Barrett. The super-prospects of the 2019 NBA Draft, college teammates at Duke turned foes for a night.

A sold out arena for a Summer League contest, the stage was set for the two young stars to take off.

Early on, Williamson came out as strong as advertised, throwing down a couple of highlight dunks, at one point ripping the ball out of the hands of Kevin Knox and finishing at the rim with a thunderous jam. Meanwhile, Barrett showed his uncanny ability to get to the rim and finish through contact.

Williamson would go onto finish with 11 points, but would exit after playing only nine minutes for precautionary reasons after suffering a knee-on-knee collison. Meanwhile, Barrett struggled with his jump shot for the majority of the night, scoring all but 10 points on 4-for-18 shooting from the field (1-for-8 from long range).

The game would turn slightly unconventional, for an earthquake prevented the final buzzer from sounding. The game ended prematurely with the New Orleans Pelicans coming away with an 80-74 come-from-behind victory over the New York Knicks.
