Zion Williamson made his NBA debut in the New Orlean Pelicans' narrow loss to San Antonio Spurs on Wednesday. His debut was the stuff of dreams as he ended the night with 22 points, 7 rebounds, 3 assists, 8-11 FGAs and 4-4 three-pointers. Despite his impressive display against Spurs, one of the NBA team's GM said he would have still picked Memphis Grizzlies' Ja Morant over Zion Williamson in the NBA draft.

Ja Morant is turning heads this season with some acrobatic displays for the Grizzlies. The potential Rookie of the Year award aspirant will now go up against NBA first draft pick Zion Williamson, who enjoyed a historic outing in his first-ever NBA game on Wednesday night. Prior to Zion Williamson's debut, a report from Vincent Goodwill of Yahoo Sports quoted an anonymous NBA team's GM making an interesting claim ahead of Williamson's debut. The Western conference manager was quoted as saying “I wouldn’t have taken him No. 1 even back then. I would’ve taken Ja [Morant] or traded back to pick up as many picks as I could.”
