Donovan Mitchell reacts to Knicks fan’s failed Zion Williamson tattoo
A fan posted a short video showing a Knicks fan who decided to have a “Zion” tattoo that was patterned from the team’s logo. This was in anticipation of the 2019 NBA Draft Lottery, where New York had a great chance to land the top pick in the draft.
New York finished with the worst regular-season record, which gave them a 14 percent chance of landing the top pick along with the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Phoenix Suns. However, lady luck did not smile for the Knickerbockers as they fell to the third spot in the 2019 NBA Draft, prompting Mitchell to react on the posted video.

The New Orleans Pelicans were the biggest winners of the day, as they will get the chance to draft Zion Williamson. The former Duke University standout is considered by many as a once-in-a-generation talent, and his impact is often compared to the projections on LeBron James when he entered the draft in 2003.
The Memphis Grizzlies will select second, and they are expected to pick between Ja Morant and RJ Barrett. The Los Angeles Lakers had the 11th-best odds in the lottery, but they made a big jump to the fourth spot. The Cavaliers and the Suns, who were tied with the Knicks for the best odds to get No.1, fell to fifth and sixth, respectively.
