Zion Williamson Rookie Cards (updated)
Zion “Zanos” Williamson is a sure-fire bet to have the most sought-after card out of all the rookie in the NBA this season.
The kid is an absolute beast and is a great bet to win rookie of the year in the upcoming season.
Zion Williamson was born on 7/5/2000 in Salisbury, North Carolina.
He attended Duke Univesity but lasted only one year as his skills were highly sought-after at the next level.
He was drafted number one in the 2019 NBA draft by the New Orleans Pelicans and is being deemed the savior of the city in the Big Easy.
Time will tell if this comes true but he is an exceptional talent and could definitely be a difference-maker even at his young age.
