In an interview with SiriusXM's NBA Radio, Zion Williamson emphasized his love for New Orleans. After his original statement at Media Day of his commitment to New Orleans was overshadowed by news of his offseason foot surgery, Williamson doubled down.
Williamson said, "I love it here. Anybody that knows me...they know that I love New Orleans. This is the city for me."
Following that, Williamson took to Instagram and shared the post from SiriusXM. Williamson's public commitment to the Pelicans comes after months of speculation that the former first overall pick is unhappy playing in New Orleans.
