Williamson said that meeting Obama has been one of his top life experiences thus far.

However, the rims over at the Rising Stars Challenge in the 2020 NBA All-Star Games in Chicago were clearly not ready for rookie Zion Williamson.

"It was insane being able to stand next to him, talk to him", Young said afterward. He was just like a regular person - that's what was insane. By the time Trae Young found Williamson for another thunderous slam with 1:09 remaining, the backboard wasn't only shaking - it was left tilted.

Williamson was stunned when Obama started rattling off his recent stats in Pelicans games. "That was all I needed to hear, to be honest".
