Zion Williamson left the Barclay’s Center in Brooklyn on Thursday like he was President of the United States — only more popular — flanked by police and swarmed by fans … and we’ve got the crazy video.
Of course, Zion was the #1 overall pick in the NBA Draft and he’ll be headed to New Orleans to lead the Pelicans … but he still got mad love from the fans in Brooklyn as if he was playin’ for the Nets.
You can see Zion is with his mom, step-dad and little brother as they leave the arena — while everyone else in the area gathered around to catch a glimpse of the most hyped NBA rookie in years.
Regarding Zion’s family, he’s VERY close with his mom and credits his step-father for essentially raising him since he was 4 years old.
Zion’s biological father, Lateef Williamson, was a college football player who attended N.C. State before transferring to Livingstone — where he met Zion’s mom Sharonda Sampson, a track athlete at the school.
Not much is really known about Zion’s relationship with his biological dad — but it doesn’t appear he was at the NBA Draft.
