Lonzo Ball, LeBron James share hug at NBA Summer League

Lonzo Ball, LeBron James share hug at NBA Summer League

He was one of the stars of last year's summer league and he endeared himself to Knicks fans in a standout performance against the Los Angeles Lakers.

Williamson was selected with the top pick in the 2019 NBA Draft and was a nightmare for opposing defenses during his freshman season at Duke.

The entire league will have its eyes on Williamson's debut later this month.

Williamson might be able to save the team, as the Pelicans have seen a decline in attendance figures, finishing in 25th out of the 30 National Basketball Association franchises last campaign, SportsPro reports.

Play was suspended for about 30 minutes and both teams were sent to their locker rooms, with arena technicians sent to check on the safety and status of the arena's large speakers - hanging above midcourt - that remained swaying after the quake, according to ESPN's televised report.

Yet before Williamson left he and Barrett showed off a number of highlight-reel worthy plays that followed them from college into the league. He put up 15 points on 5-7 shooting and went 2-2 from three-point range.

But it continued to be Williamson's show.

If Williamson only manages 10 points and two rebounds against the Knicks, the daytime television hot takes are going to be unbearable.

However, it wasn't all pretty.

Defensively, Davis gives the Lakers a rim protector who can block and affect shots at the rim.

Then came reactions to his impressive plays including a steal from Kevin Knox that led to one of his trademark dunks.

New Orleans will face the Washington Wizards on July 6 in a game that will pit Williamson against No. 9 Rui Hachimura. He was called up to the Los Angeles Lakers on March 31 and appeared in six games, averaging 4.5 points, 8.2 rebounds and 2.2 assists.
