Tonight marks  the debut of Zion Williamson when the Pelicans take to the court at the Smoothie King Center.  Fans are anxious to see the big rookie sensation get some playing time. 

"You have a player who is dynamic, been compared to Lebron James, and paired with Lebron James' former general manager, he dominates the preseason and then you're left hanging for the first 43 games, now he's in the game at the right time," said this Pelicans fan.  

"I'm excited as long as he stays healthy, that's the main thing," said another fan.  

The energy in the Smoothie King Center should be electric.  

Of course, I'm excited and we are looking forward to an exciting rest of the season," said this man.  

"You know what, I'm excited and I think the fans are gonna be real excited and he's going to give us a lot more victories," said this woman who plans on being at the game. 

Tipoff is at 8:30 when the Pels host the San Antonio Spurs.
