Zion Williamson broke down while praising his mom after being picked No. 1 in NBA Draft


Zion Williamson, to the surprise of absolutely nobody, was the first pick in the 2019 NBA Draft and will call New Orleans home, much to the delight of all the Pelicans fans who were celebrating after the pick was made Thursday night.

Fans loved it.
