The Chicago Bulls suffered a disappointing loss to the New Orleans Pelicans. However, there are some positives that can be taken away from the game.
For example, Zach LaVine finally got to experience what playing Zion Williamson is like.
LaVine has nothing but respect for the Pelicans rookie, giving out some high praises for the 19-year-old who is as big and as fast as a freight train.
Zach LaVine on Zion Williamson: “He’s the truth.”

It’s an exceptional praise that a lot of NBA stars will be saying about the Rookie Of The Year favorite, but it’s special to hear it from LaVine’s mouth for one specific reason.
Not only are these men the de facto leaders of their team, but they’re also two of the most exciting dunkers the league has seen this decade.
Zach LaVine is a graceful dunker who delivers some of the most artistic dunks in the NBA. He jumps as if he’s flying, and his lean frame lends to the illusion of flight.
Meanwhile, Zion Williamson is a powerful dunker that befits his gargantuan size. He’s unforgiving to opponents and the rim, as he always looks to slam it down with power. He’ll definitely be pounding it across the league when the season starts in earnest.
It’s going to be a long season for the fans of both the Bulls and Pelicans. Neither of them is really expected to make the playoffs, but they can surely make the season a lot more entertaining with their high-flying stars.
