Although Williamson’s rookie campaign got off to a late start, he has easily established himself as one of the most promising, young players in the league. More importantly, he is showing that he is much more than just a high-flying dunker.
Aside from Williamson’s uncanny athleticism, he has made tremendous strides in his development as an all-around player. He has flashed plenty of promise by pairing his raw power, with some finesse on the perimeter. His progression as a solid shooter from deep is also a scary sign for defenders around the league for years to come.
