Lonzo finds Zion and Pelicans interest officially through roof

Zion Williamson was selected by the Pelicans with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2019 NBA Draft.

Lonzo Ball found Zion Williamson for an alley-oop dunk … off the backboard. That is basically how things are going early in camp with the Pelicans.

That is the former No. 2 overall pick connecting with the reigning No. 1. And it makes you believe the New Orleans Pelicans could be fun to watch this year. And perhaps win more than people (read: Anthony Davis) might think.

“You kind of sit back and say ‘Whoa,” then you realize ‘Hey, that’s just Zion. That’s what he does,'” Pelicans guard Frank Jackson told reporters.

The Pelicans have lots of energy, plenty of youth and some real talent in Williamson, Ball, Brandon Ingram and even veteran sharpshooter J.J. Redick. Who knows that all of that will result in on Year One together.

Early indications are that, at the very least, it will be a great time to tune in and follow the franchise. Aside from winning a championship, that’s all any franchise and its fans really want.
