The Pelicans rookie has been trying to get in shape over the last few weeks after suffering an injury in Summer League but now, he seems to be confident going into the season. In a recent article by ESPN’s Anthony Olivieri, Williamson was asked what his biggest fear is and instead of talking about being bust, he had a much more mature answer.
“My worst fear is — and I know it’s not going to happen — you hear about people losing their love for the game,” Zion explained. “I hope that never happens to me because I love the game so much. If that happens to me, I’d be so hurt.”
Based on Zion's work ethic and love for the game alone, he shouldn't have any worries about not living up to the hype. Fans are already excited about his career and that will certainly motivate him moving forward. His first game will truly be a sight to behold.
