Williamson is only 18, but the forward is by his rare talent now compared with LeBron James. With his impressive appearance (2m01, 129 kg), he was this season in the shirt of the Duke the poet in the university championship NCAA. He made average of 22.6 points per game and did mouths open attack with his spectacular dunks. It earned him the Naismith Men’s Player of the Year trophy.
The disappointment for the fans of, among others, New York was also huge:
New Orleans ended the regular season on the thirteenth place in the Western Conference with 33 wins and 49 defeats. The Pelicans had in the draw for the draft, but 6 percent chance to be the first choice to get. Will Anthony Davis, the star of New Orleans, now decide to have a season to continue.
He wants to be?
The big question however, is whether Williamson himself for the Pelicans want to play. Rumor has it that the superatleet his mind had been on the New York Knicks. Which had a 14 percent chance at the first selection, but may not be permitted as a third choice. Williamson sees as his chance to be in one of the largest markets in the U.S. to play go up in smoke.
The Knicks couldn’t believe that they are up to number three fell. Cleveland and Phoenix, which is the same chance as made on the first pick, fell by the way back to five and six. But New York still has the chance to be one of those other two supertalenten to draften: Yes Morant or RJ Barrett. And that keeps the option open to Anthony Davis out of New Orleans with a trade.
