New Orleans Pelicans phenom Zion Williamson balled out Sunday night during a 122-114 loss to the Lakers and LeBron James.

In their second matchup, the NBA rookie dropped a staggering 35 points in the losing effort. He dominated from start to finish and missed a grand total of only four shots. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

You can watch highlights of his performance below.

Is there anybody out there who still doesn’t think Zion will be a star in the NBA? This young man has only played a handful of games so far, and he’s just torching people.

I understand he didn’t get the win last night, but he still dominated one of the best teams in the league at the age of 19!

He’s simply a freak of nature athletically, and there’s no other way necessary to describe what he does on the court.

He’s essentially a middle linebacker playing forward in the NBA. To say he’s exceeded expectations would be an understatement.

I can’t wait to see what he does next because he’s done nothing other than blow us all away so far.
