Zion Williamson is an absolute freak of nature.  There aren’t many basketball players that can do what he do on the court, especially at his size.

So it’s not all that surprising that Pelicans play-by-play announcer Joel Meyers would assume a basketball player of Zion’s size was out of shape.

What is surprising is Meyers asking the former Duke star, and number one overall pick, if he was in shape during his introductory press conference.

The 18-year-old brushed off the question and answered it about as well as one could be expected. 

“I don’t think you guys would have drafted me if I wasn’t.  I think I’m in pretty good shape.”

Something tells me this isn’t the first time Williamson’s weight has come up with this guy.  Expect a lot of play-by-play surrounding Zion’s weight this season in New Orleans.
