The hype is real with Zion Williamson.
Zion Williamson recorded a game-high 29 points for the New Orleans Pelicans Wednesday night in a 127-125 win over the Chicago Bulls in just his second preseason game.
According to ESPN Stats & Info, his 29 points were the most by a rookie in the preseason in three years and the most by a No. 1 overall pick since Derrick Rose had 30 points in 2008.
Had the game occurred in the regular season, Williamson would have made history.
