    2019 Contenders Draft Picks Zion Williamson (College Variations - Diamond Ticket C) #51 BGS Mint 9, Auto 10 - #'d #4/5 "A freak of nature" is how one anonymous college coach termed Zion Williamson, and the coach was spot on. Zion, named by his mother for the biblical Mount Zion, is an athlete of biblical ability who does not fit the mold. At 6'6" and his listed 2019-20 weight of 280 lbs., one would think that Zion would be as large and immobile as his namesake Mount Zion, and one would be totally wrong. His quick, fast, and agile. As a youth of nine-years-old, he would get up at 5 a.m. to train for basketball. His stepfather, a former college player, and his mother coached him. His high school team won three state championships, and he played AAU ball for a season in South Carolina on a team with Ja Morant. He went to Duke University, and while weighing 280 lbs., set the school's all-time vertical leap record (since broken) at 45 inches.

    After one great season at Duke where Zion was named ACC Player of the Year, ACC Athlete of the Year, and ACC Rookie of the Year, he was taken by the New Orleans Pelicans as the first overall pick of the NBA 2019 Draft. A knee injury limited Zion early in the season, and he appeared in 24 games. He had a standout first pro season, averaging 22.5 PPG, 6.3 RPG and 2.1 APG even though New Orleans limited his playing time to avoid stressing him, and he averaged only 27.8 minutes a game. In this 2020-21 season, it is reported that his weight is down 20-25 pounds and the playing time restrictions have been lifted. Expect even higher numbers. Zion Williamson is a future NBA superstar, and this very scarce Contenders Draft Picks card should only increase in value over time. Graded BGS Mint 9, with a Beckett Auto 10. Limited edition #4/5.
