This is the only way to get an official Zion Williamson New Orleans Pelicans #1 jersey

Zion Williamson Pelicans jersey

The New Orleans Pelicans won the rights to the #1 overall selection for the upcoming 2019 NBA Draft. So if all goes as expected, Zion Williamson will be putting on a New Orleans Pelicans jersey for the upcoming 2019-2020 NBA season.

When the Pelicans’ ping pong ball came up clutch during the NBA Draft Lottery, the franchise beat out several other NBA organizations that had much higher odds than New Orleans’ 6% odds of getting the number one selection. Projected as a once in a decade type player that expected to alter the game as we know it, the NBA Draft Lottery basically became the Zion Williamson sweepstakes. That’s how special everyone thinks he can be.

What Jersey Number Will Zion Wear?

We’ve calculated that it’s 99.99% likely he’ll be in an New Orleans uniform next season, so what jersey number will Zion choose to wear? The good news for Williamson is that he’ll have the choice of the #1 jersey that he wore at Duke or the #12 high school jersey number he wore while at Spartanburg Day.

That’s because no current Pelicans player is wearing either #1 or #12 (nor are those jersey numbers retired). We have a sense that Zion will wear #1 because that’s the jersey number he wore at Duke and it’s symbolic of his very likely selection as Williamson will be selected #1 overall in the 2019 NBA Draft.

Where to Buy Zion Williamson Pelicans Jersey?

Excitement is both tangible and palpable for Zion to land in New Orleans, so much that the organization has sold twice the season tickets for the coming season when compared to when Anthony Davis was drafted. That’s how popular Zion already is.

Now that we know that the Pelicans will choose Zion and he has the choice of his preferred jersey number, where can regular fans of Williamson and Pelicans supporters buy a Zion Williamson #1 New Orleans Pelicans jersey?

With the NBA Draft set for June 20th, 2019, Zion won’t legally and officially become an NBA player until then no matter how certain he is certain to be chosen by the Pelicans. So that said, we’re unsure if there’ll be any official Zion Williamson uniforms produced in the Pelicans’ team colors of white, navy blue, red, and gold for a while.

Everyone is High on Zion

We’ve looked and we haven’t found anyone that has anything bad to say about Zion’s prospects.

Expectations are certainly high for Zion’s arrival, nearly as high as his record-breaking vertical leap. Even NBA superstars are getting into the hype. Kevin Durant has already called Zion a “once in a generation athlete.” and NBA players are already excited to see how Williamson performs.

If he can provide even a quarter of the highlights he had when playing for Duke, no doubt his NBA jersey will be one of the league’s best sellers for the 2020 season and beyond. Considering Williamson’s eruptive athleticism, all-around game, team-oriented approach, basketball IQ, work ethic, infectious enthusiasm and humility, Zion is in a great position to become the next NBA superstar.
