While Williamson is a cash cow with enormous popularity, he would be the least-accomplished cover athlete in NBA 2K history. The rookie currently averages 23.6 points and 6.8 rebounds per game.
Zion would now hope to continue his good run in the NBA and lead the Pelicans to the playoffs when the league restarts in Orlando.
