Zion Williamson is one popular guy, especially in New Orleans.
Drew Brees is just one of many to welcome the Pelicans’ No. 1 draft pick to the Big Easy. The Saints quarterback recently gifted Williamson a signed jersey and a personalized note, which he discovered shortly after his arrival to the city.
The note attached reads: “Zion, Welcome to the family. Let’s dance!”
(Williamson notably shouted the phrase “Let’s dance!” after being selected first in the 2019 NBA Draft, and clearly loved Brees’ reference.)

According to The Times-Picayune’s Andrew Lopez, the 40-year-old quarterback left a more personal message for the 18-year-old basketball star.
“To Zion – Passing the torch to you! Who dat!”
