Among the more exciting teams in the league are the new-look Pelicans, who shipped Anthony Davis in a haul that got them Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram, Josh Hart and a collection of picks to pair alongside Duke superstar Zion Williamson.

Though most of the team is full of mostly unproven young stars, they seem confident in the team and in each other -- as displayed by star point guard, Lonzo Ball.

"Man, I've never seen somebody that size move like him. He's only 19, right? He's definitely a freak. I've never seen nothing like it."

Ball's words do ring some sense of truth. The league hasn't seen a guy like Zion -- a 6-7, 285-pound beast with a vertical that reaches to the sky.

He will begin his NBA debut this October, where he is expected to begin a new era for the Pelicans. At 19-years-old, it will certainly be a long and tough journey ahead for the national sensation. But with guys like Lonzo, Favors, and Reddick there to mentor him, he should find his way.

It will be interesting to see if Williamson really does live up to all the hype, or if being the center of an entire generation of NBA basketball will be too much for a kid out of college.
