The game between the New Orleans Pelicans and the New York Knicks might have been stopped early because of an earthquake, but fans have already seen the glimpse of what the newcomers could do in both teams. Not to be outperformed, Mitchell Robinson sophomore big man had some highlight of his own, including this sequence.

Robinson started things off by throwing down a two-handed dunk, He then went down to the other end of the floor to play defense. Zion Williamson, the first-overall pick in this year's draft, attempted to take a 3-point in front of him, and Robinson made the know that it was a terrible idea, as he blocked the shot, ran for the fast break, and finished the play with another dunk.
Indeed, most people talked about Williamson's debut. In fact, he was the main reason why the Thomas and Mack Center was jam-packed Friday night. Multiple NBA stars, including Los Angeles Lakers teammates LeBron James and Anthony Davis, just went to the arena to Zion play.
But Robinson sent a strong message. He made it clear that things are easy for Williamson in the NBA.
Just like Zion, Mitchell also wants to prove himself to the rest of the league. He was overlooked by a lot of teams in the 2018 NBA Draft, as he fell down to the Knicks as the 36th overall pick.
He already had a good rookie season, but he's looking to have a breakout year not only for the knicks but also for his doubters.
