Duke basketball star Zion Williamson had himself a night Tuesday against Wake Forest.

The phenom forward was the first freshman in program history to record 30 points, 10 rebounds and five assists in a single game, according to Bleacher Report.

The highlights from the game are just another reminder that Zion is likely going to be the first pick in the 2019 NBA draft. You can watch them below.

As I’ve said many times before, this young man is something special, and it’s just that simple. His combination of freak athleticism, size and ability to make plays is pretty unprecedented.

Outside of LeBron James, I don’t know if I can think of anybody as athletic with the same body frame as Zion.

That’s a good sign when it comes to making money down the road.

For as much as I hate Duke, it’s still a ton of fun watching Zion play for Coach K. He’s a generational talent and he’s the main reason the Blue Devils are so damn good.

College defenses just aren’t built to stop a guy like him. I can’t wait to see what he manages to do next.
