Zion Williamson Reacts To Pelicans Winning NBA Draft Lottery
Last night’s NBA draft lottery was full of drama as basketball fans, sports journalists, NBA players, and the suits all waited with bated breath to see which team would score the #1 pick in the upcoming draft. Winning the coveted pick would likely ensure that said team retains the services of Zion Williamson, the most lauded after rookie since LeBron James.
Many talking heads predicted that either the Knicks or the Hawks would win the Zion Williamson lottery as they had two of the worst records in the NBA. Hell, based on some timely camerawork prior to the event that caught Williamson happily tapping the Hawks logo as he walked through the TV set, it appeared that even Zion was anticipating the big apple or the big peach.
But alas, neither team had the winning number, the New Orleans Pelicans did.
It suffices to say that Zion was not expecting to be eating etouffee all 2020. ESPN’s Rachel Nichols broke down what she saw in Zion’s face when it was evident that he would not be living in New York or Atlanta.
