The New Orleans Pelicans point guard Jrue Holiday shared his thoughts on Pelicans forward Zion Williamson’s athleticism and mental toughness to cope with the rookie’s pressure:
Per USA Today: “He’s already done a lot. You can see just how much joy he’s brought to the city. I don’t want to put too much on him because it can be hard to carry something like that at such a young age. I know he’s a freakish athlete and a smart kid. If anyone can carry that burden, it would probably be him,” Holiday said.
This past season, Williamson averaged 22.6 points, 8.9 rebounds, 2.1 assists, 2.1 steals and 1.8 blocks per game for Duke.
