LaVar Ball believes the superstar of the New Orleans Pelicans Zion Williamson is not as popular as LaMelo Ball.

Williamson was the No.1 pick in the 2019 NBA Draft, while LaMelo Ball is expected to be a top pick in the 2020 NBA Draft.

“Melo’s (aura) is better. Because Melo is worldwide. You take Zion to Germany or Lithuania or Latvia or Estonia or London, they don’t know who he is.

You take Melo over there, you know who he is. Like I said, take him over there and see. Ask who Zion is, they’ll look at you crazy like ‘Who is Zion?’” LaVar Ball said during his appearance on Complex’s Load Management podcast, via Jacob Rude of USA TODAY Sports.
