New Orleans Pelicans rookie Zion Williamson has taken the NBA world by storm through his first 19 pro games.

But before he was dominating the NBA, the Pelicans star was destroying little kids in high school back in South Carolina.

Mason Ginsberg of Bourbon Street Shots did NBA Twitter a favor on Friday by posting this awesome clip of a helpless kid confidently defending Williamson in high school, only to get called for a foul:

Could you imagine having to go through a full day of high school and then having to guard Williamson after school? Kudos to this kid for trying, though. Somewhere, his family is proud of his effort.

Since making his NBA regular season debut for the Pelicans on Jan. 22 against the San Antonio Spurs, Williamson has been a force. The 2019 No. 1 overall pick out of Duke is averaging 23.6 points, 6.8 rebounds and 2.2 assists while shooting 58.9 percent from the field, 46.2 percent from beyond the arc and 64.5 percent from the free-throw line.

Before the season got suspended due to the coronavirus, the Pelicans were in 10th place in the Western Conference standings with a record of 28-36. New Orleans has gone 10-9 with Williamson in the lineup. NBA fans are hoping the season resumes so Williamson and the Pelicans can continue to fight for a playoff berth.

After all, everyone around the world wants to watch Williamson compete in the postseason.
