Drew Brees says New Orleans is “excited” about arrival of Zion Williamson
Superstar quarterback and future Hall of Famer Drew Brees says the city of New Orleans is “excited” over the arrival of Zion Williamson.
There hasn’t been a player has hyped as Zion Williamson has been for over a decade, and Drew Brees says the city of New Orleans is thrilled to have him.
The city of New Orleans has done nothing but love their Saints and Pelicans over the last few seasons. However, early in the offseason, one of those two franchises were torn apart as their franchise player was traded.
With Anthony Davis no longer with the Pelicans, fear not fans, a new superstar has arrived. His name is Zion Williamson, and he’ll be greeted by a myriad of assets that New Orleans secured from LA for Davis.
That said, the Pelicans should also consider themselves lucky that they found such a personable player off the court and such a phenom on the court. It wasn’t supposed to be this way. They weren’t favored in the NBA lottery.
However, with Zion suiting up for the Pelicans this upcoming season, the past doesn’t matter all too much. All we know is that the city of New Orleans is ready to back their new superstar, according to Drew Brees, who joined The Rich Eisen Show and talked about Williamson.
When asked about what he feels about Zion, Brees responded by saying, “Obviously, the city is excited. It’s a great opportunity for him to be a part of a really great fanbase and a great city and an organization that I think has a ton of support.”
He also mentions how close the two stadiums are and the similarities in their leadership and ownership groups.
Above all, Brees mentions how the Pelicans, a rather young team by NBA standards, should focus on grinding every day and getting better over sheerly winning each and every game, although still a high priority.
A superstar at the collegiate level, Zion has been one of the most talked-about players this generation. His superhuman athleticism combined with his easy-going personality has made him both a star on the court and among those that’ve met the 19-year-old.
That said, like Drew Brees, New Orleans has high expectations for Zion Williamson and his NBA potential.
