Zion Williamson will face LeBron James for the first time ever tonight and had nothing but good words to say about the “King”.

“I used to watch him all the time, especially when he was in Cleveland the first time, he was just an incredible player to watch, he always held his own.

Sometimes I feel he doesn’t get the respect he deserves but it’s not for me to decide,” Williamson said, via Yahoo Sports.

The New Orleans Pelicans (25-32) and Williamson will battle the LA Lakers (43-12) and James at Staples Center.
