Since The Pelicans announced his name as the number 1 overall pick in last Thursday’s NBA draft, the media train for Zion Willamson has been strong, and today add one more cool moment to the madness.
The Pelicans just uploaded a video showing Zion entering a condo in New Orleans, and being greeted with an unbelievable surprise, a signed Drew Brees jersey with a welcoming note from Drew himself that read “welcome to the Family, let’s dance.”
Zion’s reaction is priceless, claiming this is the “first jersey” he has ever gotten from a professional athlete, and that he is excited to collect more like it.
“It’s a nice gift man, Sheesh, my first jersey. I’m gonna collect a lot of these. Wow, passing the torch…am I ready to take that on? The City of New Orleans….I’m ready. Let’s go”
Zion ends the moment with a cool thanks you to Drew. What a moment indeed. 2019 is shaping up to be a special year New Orleans, let’s dance.
