Zion Williamson experienced his first taste of being booed in an NBA arena, but it wasn’t for basketball related reasons.
The New Orleans Pelicans held an open practice on Saturday evening that included some delightful rookie hazing, as all three of the team’s first-round picks in the 2019 NBA Draft had to show off their singing skills.
“I Wanna Dance With Somebody” by Whitney Houston was Zion Williamson’s song, but he didn’t utter a word until the chorus.
Fans showered him with boos.
Nickeil Alexander-Walker was the star of the evening when he belted out “A Thousand Miles” by Vanessa Carlton.
