For a team like the Nets, watching the No1 pick go to Boston was painful, and while every draft is 'hyped' there doesn't immediately appear to be any immediate generational superstar the way Bron, Duncan, Shaq, & Anthony Davis were when they were drafted. As a Nets fan, it's painful knowing that the team doesn't control the fate of their draft pick until 2019, but I was recently put on to one prospect in that class that truly appears to have "generational talent" potential
Zion Williamson is a 6'8", 16 year old small forward from Spartanburg, South Carolina. At this point, you've likely been paying attention to the fact that we have posted raw highlights from almost all of Zion's high school games this season. You might ask yourself, why? Zion Williamson averaged 36.8 ppg & 13 rpg to go along with 3.2 apg, 3 spg and 2.5 blocks... ridiculous. His team faced the likes of Jalek Felton (UNC), Juwan Gary (Top 30 in 2019), Bryce Schneider (Richmond) and led his team to a 26-9 record which included a SCISA 2A State Championship. He broke the Chick-Fil-A Classic single game scoring record by dropping 53 points while only missing THREE SHOTS! Oh, by the way, he also scored 51 in the state championship game. He is currently ranked the number 2 player in the class of 2018 (current 11th graders) and will be looking to push for that number 1 spot this summer on the adidas circuit. Zion was featured as the number 1 play on ESPN's Sportscenter three times this season and played in front of sell out crowds on a nightly basis.
