Zion Williamson will have to get used to that creole food as he makes his home in New Orleans. 

But where did Zion really want to go? 

According to ESPN’s Marc J. Spears, Zion was actually rooting for the Knicks to get the #1 spot and he was “quickly whisked out of the room” after the Pelicans prevailed.

Entering the draft lottery, New Orleans had just a 6% chance of securing the top pick, slightly better than the last place Knicks who had a 14% chance. New York ended up with the third pick.

14% isn’t all that great, and to pin your hopes on that small of a percentage is just not all that smart. 

Zion can say he won’t sign there a la Eli Manning,  and force a trade. 

Now that would fun to watch.
