Zion Williamson
Williamson, 18, was selected as the the No. 1 overall pick at the 2019 NBA Draft on Thursday evening.

Having dominated college basketball at Duke, Williamson is expected to take the NBA by storm - very much like a fellow No. 1 pick did 16 years ago.

LeBron James scored 25 points in his first NBA game for the Cleveland Cavaliers and would go onto establishing himself as arguably the second best player in basketball history, behind Michael Jordan.

No. 1 draft picks, though, have not always go on to achieve great things with the likes of Greg Oden and Anthony Bennett having failed to live up to the lofty expectations.
