Pelicans rookie Zion Williamson is finally on the court and living up to the hype. So, what does the greatest player of all time, Micheal Jordan, think of his limited play so far? Per 247Sports...

I think the NBA is very fortunate to have a talented young man who shows a certain passion about the game,” Jordan said. “That’s something that you can’t get. You’re either born with it and you basically want to share it with the rest of the world.

“We looked at Zion being an impact player that would bring energy to the game of basketball, and we can do it with a lot of different factors and different ways of endorsement and marketing. So it was a great opportunity for us. I imagine the league has quite a number of those people, but we were very fortunate that he chose us, and we look at every opportunity to expand him to the consumers and yet showcase his personality and his basketball skills.”

“At the end of the day, we can’t play basketball for him, but we feel like he does present us with an opportunity to showcase his talents, and that’s what our job is going to be,” Jordan said. “It’s a great partnership. I think what you saw the other night was a taste of what you’re going to see coming forward. He still has a lot to do, but I think his passion for the game is coming through the way that he plays, and I think that’s great for the league. That’s not just great for Jordan.”
