Memphis Grizzlies v New Orleans Pelicans
LAS VEGAS, NEVADA - JULY 14: Zion Williamson #1 of the New Orleans Pelicans warms up on the court before a semifinal game of the 2019 NBA Summer League against the Memphis Grizzlies at the Thomas & Mack Center on July 14, 2019 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

When the Pelicans drafted Zion Williamson he said “let’s dance.”

The Pelicans quickly filed a trademark application.

Well no more.

They gave it up to Williamson, who will now control the expression and who gets to use it commercially.

Judging from our e-mail a lot of people prefer it to his earlier slogan which Nike put on his Duke shoes with some dripping red marks: “Killers kill,” which of course could be just as easily true for a serial killer as for a nice kid from Spartanburg, SC.

It’s going to be a big seller.
