New Orleans Pelicans star Zion Williamson revealed that the legendary Michael Jordan was his favorite player as a kid.

“He was my favorite player growing up. The ‘last shot’ with the Bulls was up there [as my favorite MJ memory]. He made a defensive play, got the steal off Karl Malone and iced the game,” Williamson said about Jordan, per Ben Golliver of The Washington Post.

Williamson signed a record rookie sneaker deal worth $75 million over five years with Jordan Brand.
