Zion Williamson has a big body that enables him to dominate the paint. But, the New Orleans Pelicans young star is also able to get his teammates involved. After his team’s loss to the Dallas Mavericks, Williamson spoke about his playmaking ability.

“For the people that don’t know my backstory, I was always trained to be like a playmaker,” the Williamson said, per Maria Taylor of ESPN.

“So I’m just glad that my teammates and my coaches see how unselfish I am. I like getting my teammates involved and giving other people confidence.”

The 20-year-old forward is averaging 24.3 points, 6.8 rebounds and 2.9 assists per game for the Pelicans. With 11 wins and 14 losses, New Orleans is currently 12th in the Western Conference.
