The word dominant has been used to describe New Orleans Pelicans All-Star Zion Williamson as of late. The 24-year-old high flyer has been using his superior athletic gifts to the fullest, racking up quite the individual achievement since the beginning of the year.

Against the Milwaukee Bucks at Fiserv Forum on Thursday, the 6-foot-7 forward scored 24 points at the half on 11 made field goals in 15 attempts, according to ESPN Stats & Info. These are all career highs for Zion Williamson, marking the sixth game of his career that he’s eclipsed 20 points in the first 24 minutes of a game.

The good thing about Zion Williamson is he understands his strengths. While the Pels bruiser could score from the perimeter and hit the occasional 3-pointer, Williamson knows he is a walking mismatch for almost anyone when gets to the paint.

Zion Williamson has already joined the ranks of some of history’s greatest inside operators, per ESPN’s Andrew Lopez.

Zion Williamson being a special player shouldn’t come as news anymore, but the things he can do at such a young age is always a sight to behold.  After an injury-riddled start to his NBA career, there were concerns if the former Duke standout would even be healthy enough to reach that incredibly high ceiling of his.

The 2020 All-Rookie First Team member has erased those doubts and more in his incredible sophomore season so far. Prior to facing the Bucks, Zion Williamson has been notching 25.3 points on 62 percent shooting from the field, along with 6.8 rebounds, and 3.2 assists in 30 games. His consistent dominance has even earned him the first of probably many All-Star appearances of his promising career.
