Another day and another ridiculous finish from Zion Williamson.

This time it was a 360 degree dunk, and came in the third quarter of a 127-125 win for his New Orleans Pelicans side over the Chicago Bulls. It was part of a 29-point game for the North Carolina man.

It comes just days after an astonishing slam dunk against the Atlanta Hawks, in which he picked up a pass at the three point line, drove past three Hawks defenders with a rapid turn of pace, and finished in devastating style.

Williamson was the number one pick in this year’s draft after completing a year at Duke University in which clips of his play regularly went viral over the course of the season.

The 19-year-old star is seen as a generational talent and one of the most highly-anticipated rookies in recent times. With all eyes on the young man, he’s already supplying fans with his own highlight reel during the Pelicans’ pre-season and his NBA career has even begun yet.
