Zion Williamson gets real on Pelicans, David Griffin playing piano for him

Zion Williamson, Pelicans, David Griffin

The New Orleans Pelicans have reportedly had some problems with executive vice president David Griffin, but franchise star Zion Williamson has cleared the air and made it very clear about where he stands with the organization.

Williamson had been previously frustrated with the Pelicans across his first two seasons for a variety of reasons, most specifically the hoops he had to jump through during his rookie year when he suffered a knee injury. The former number one overall pick became irritated with the medical staff because of his lengthy absence from the floor where it took three months for him to play again, despite being ruled out for just 6-8 weeks.

Despite that, Zion understands that he will obviously have some disagreements with Griffin and the Pelicans but in the end, they have the same goal: to win games and get to the playoffs. Back in the 2020 bubble when Williamson suffered a hamstring injury, Griffin reportedly even tried to play the piano for Zion to calm him down. The third-year forward addressed that notion on Monday in a hilarious way:

Hey Zion, that’s totally fair. Nevertheless, you’ve heard it from the horse’s mouth. The Pelicans are exactly where Williamson wants to be, for the time being. But if they continue to miss out on the postseason, his MSG dreams could come true, after all. I guess we’ll have to wait and see.
