LeBron James and rookie sensation Zion Williamson finally faced each other as the Lakers hosted the Pelicans. They scored 40 and 29 points respectively. Naturally, the question arises if Zion could ‘take the torch’ from LeBron.
Sport analyst Nick Wright says not yet. While he thinks Williamson could do that one day, according to him, this season the only player who could do that is reigning NBA MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo.
This season, the Greek Freak is averaging 29.7 points, 13.7 rebounds and 5.8 assists per game.
