Zion Williamson Praises Playing Basketball In New York: "I Can’t Lie To You."

Young superstar Zion Williamson praised New York following the Pelicans’ 112-122 loss to the Knicks, Sunday, saying that it “might be my favorite place to play” besides New Orleans. Regardless, the comments have Knicks fans speculating about a possible move to New York in Williamson’s future.

“I’m glad you asked that,’’ Williamson said following the game. “New York is the mecca of basketball. I love playing here. I played here in college [at Duke]. This is my first time playing in the pros. This atmosphere, whether they’re cheering for you or booing you, it’s amazing. Outside of New Orleans, obviously, this might be my favorite place to play. I can’t lie to you.’’
