One of the things we’ve talked about when we talk about former Blue Devil Zion Williamson is his emotional intelligence and his impact on a group.

This is a really big deal and he demonstrated it recently when he hung out with the Saints and quarterback Drew Brees, who seems to have really taken a shine to Williamson, who his half his age (the thing about the tuxes here is really funny).

People are worrying about his stats and stuff but you should consider instead the impact Williamson will have on Jahlil Okafor, Josh Hart, Lonzo Ball and Brandon Ingram. We don’t see personalities like this on teams very often. If he has the same impact on New Orleans as he had at Duke, fans are going to be in for a fun ride.
