Master P Says Zion Williamson Will Be "Bigger Than Michael Jordan" In New Orleans


Currently, the presumption is that Zion Williamson will be headed to New Orleans when the Pelicans select him as the No. 1 draft pick. While the news has sparked conversations on Williamson’s feelings as potentially being apart of the southern team, Master P, a strong representative of the city, has declared that a strong legion of fans and supporters await Williamson so much so that he could very well be a bigger personality than Michael Jordan.

“He’ll be bigger than Michael Jordan,” Master P said while speaking with TMZ. “Think about it. When Jordan first came out of college everyone had to have his jersey. Everyone wanted to be like Mike. Come to New Orleans they gonna wanna be like you, Z.”

It was originally reported that Zion was hoping to land at New York for the inception of his career, but his hopes were dashed when the New Orleans Pelicans retained the No. 1 Draft pick, a slot that’s his for the taking by all standards. Williamson’s stepfather, Lee Anderson, would soon refute the claims, saying that his son was happy to play with the Pelicans or any team for that matter.

“One thing that Zion has always been taught is to accept the things you can’t change and change the things that you can change. And, this is one of the things that he has nothing to do with,” Anderson said while speaking with a Baton Rouge area sports radio show.
