Zion Williamson was up and down in his Summer League debut, getting his shot blocked by Mitchell Robinson three times in the first half alone. He looked like a rookie...

That’s not why you’re here — you want the highlights. Zion had those, too. But none like ripping the ball out of Kevin Knox hands and throwing it down.

That is a man’s move.

It was some payback for a Knox strip of Williamson earlier.

Williamson was putting on a show in warmups, too.

Zion had 11 points in the first half, and was sat the second half by the Pelicans in a conservative move after some knee to knee contact in the first half. (Fans may not like it, but that’s what teams should do here, this is just Sumer League.)

The Knicks with three players who got regular NBA minutes last season — Allonzo Trier, Mitchell Robinson, and Knox — controlled the game.
