Here's Zion's reaction when the Pelicans won the No. 1 pick 🎥
BREAKING: Projected 1st overall pick Zion Williamson announces he will be returning to Duke for his sophomore season (via @wojespn
The Pelicans, I'm told, have sold in the neighborhood of 3,000 season-ticket packages for next season in the wake of winning last night's NBA lottery and the chance to draft Zion Williamson No. 1 overall

"If I could come back for a second year, I would ... best year of my life."
Zion has mad love for his home at Duke ➡️ https://t.co/0IXP2ZdAq5
Un pequeño adelanto sobre cómo será la temporada Rookie de Zion Williamson en la NBA 😂😂😂😂

Le résumé de la saison de Zion en NCAA 😂😂
Zion Williamson’s step-father, Lee Anderson, says on the Off the Bench radio show in Baton Rouge that Zion is "excited about the prospect of getting down there and getting settled” in New Orleans & added that returning to Duke “is not something that we have even considered."
"What if Anthony Davis says, 'Interesting. I can now play with the newest, greatest sensation to hit this league since Michael Jordan.' We have never seen a wrecking ball like Zion Williamson. ... It's going to be Mardi Gras every night in New Orleans." — @RealSkipBayless
Bafana ba kosha, ya kereke ya mount zion 🙏🙏🙏🎶🎶
Do me and Zion a favor. Build a Whataburger in New Orleans.
But first, build the damn Whataburger on Burbank and Lee already. https://t.co/8vFJHqxfdi
ICYMI: ESPN's Jackie MacMullan threw her support behind the New Orleans before the outcome of the NBA Draft Lottery. She believed the Pelicans deserved Zion Williamson more than anyone else thanks to the disruption of the Anthony Davis trade request. https://t.co/IqJ5qcKS1y
Lol Zion Williamson isn’t returning to school. He’s going to make $9 million in NBA salary, and another $9 million (or more) in endorsement salary next year. He’ll be just happy in the big easy...
Zion Williamson after a full season in New Orleans.
IF YOU LISTEN TO ANYTHING TODAY LISTEN TO THIS! Zion's step father sets the record straight on Zion Williamson! Spread the word he's coming to NOLA!!!! https://t.co/fjiHAbVKos
Zion Williamson tryna get traaded to the Knicks first day at the Pelicans training facility
Need everyone especially @joebuddenclips
to bookmark Ep 247 as the day this man Mal claimed Julius fucking Randle is better than Zion Williamson
Zion’s step father just said on off the bench that they are ‘very excited’ about the crescent city @JordyCulotta @TBob53
Can we put all of the moronic speculation about Zion returning to Duke & thereby throwing away 8 figures worth of career earnings (with no guarantee of a bigger market next time around) to rest now? https://t.co/omL407DDEP
Could David Griffin give Anthony Davis the trade he always wanted? Maybe, if the Chicago Bulls want to play Ball. https://t.co/D6c4PkApf1
Will be interesting to see what happens in the Anthony Davis trade. Pelicans could have a roster with:
Brandon Ingram/Jayson Tatum
I cannot believe FOR A SECOND anyone believed Zion would consider staying at Duke
The kid has about $150 million guaranteed in the table and he’s gonna pass it up to work for FREE?????? Foh 😂 https://t.co/IsTfpYPNOc
I think Zion lands with the Angels #angelslanding
A little National Park humor that you don’t get every day.
National media: “Duke should sit Zion so he doesn’t risk injury and tank his draft value. I bet he’d be great in quality franchises like the Lakers, and Knicks!”
Also national media: “Zion should go back to Duke to risk injury and tanking his draft stock to avoid the Pels.”
On why Zion Williamson is the best Draft prospect since Anthony Davis, and why I love his fit with the New Orleans Pelicans: https://t.co/xBYGyXZsOx
Patrick Ewing couldn't deliver Zion to New York while David Griffin keeps racking up top picks.

This is actual footage of Zion Williamson in the NBA
I agree even tho id be salty as hell. I been saying we gotta stop hating the players for wanting to leave nola and start looking at the organization. Why cant we keep a superstar? We havent even added zion and people all around are saying dont go to nola
If Zion go back to college because he don’t want to play for NO they should ban him or any player for that altogether. It’s a privilege to go to the nba no matter the team.
I hope Zion go back to Duke and fuck the draft and the NBA up
Why y’all acting like Zion the only player in the draft 🙄

Zion goin back to Duke is like a nigga getting a opportunity to design sneakers for Nike but just cause he ain’t like the direction or shoe they tryna have him design he just be like naw mane I’m goin back to footlocker dawg, I’m goin back to work for footaction. Tf is niggas on?
Yo diciendo que Zion es un profesional y el bato ya se quiere regresar a Duke para no jugar con los Pelicans.
A Hype é pra tentar fazer os caras subirem no Draft e sobrar caras melhores pra times que tem mais tradição. Fodeu a vida o Zion ir pra New Orleans.
should not even put a name on that pick, it has to be moved for AD before the draft. They should try to swap the 4th with the 3rd so we can use it for AD, RJ is the only hope the Pelicans have of keeping Zion long term. AD has to be firm on Lakers only to have any shot.
Vieron lo de Zion Williamson, quiere volver a jugar en Duke ya que no quiere jugar en los Pelicans y ver si el próximo año lo escoge un mejor equipo
Like, you're asking if I think Zion would have considered going back to Duke? I don't care if there was an NBA franchise in Siberia and that's the one that picked him, he was never going back to Duke.
JC wasn't an MP 40 years ago, so how did they know he was going to be leader? I know The Elders of Zion spooky
Watch what? Zion being the best player in the NBA in like 5 years?
If you thought Zion was returning to Duke to play another year of free basketball you’re a disphit.
Cannot believe this became an actual storyline post lottery. https://t.co/Y9IxPrii0O
It’s no secret that nba general managers help other general managers around league. The new, pelicans general manager used to work with Bron James in Cleveland. The pelicans need to sign Anthony Davis or trade him before Zion walks into a toxic Organization an they lose him too.
Zion and the best class in the country went to duke not to UCLA cuz duke is a good program and UCLA hasn’t been in at least a decade not cuz Durham, NC is a great place to live so why would it be different in the nba. Plus the nba has a salary cap so not every top player can go

True and I’m talking about as a rookie coming in I don’t even see Zion coming impacting a team like that for a title
I’ll give everybody who retweets this $1 if Zion returns to Duke
It’s not happening 😂😂
