Zion Williamson and the New Orleans Pelicans are heading to Thanksgiving with their craving for a victory satisfied following a 129-110 dismantling of the San Antonio Spurs Wednesday night on the road.
Zion Williamson dropped 32 points on the Spurs, shooting 14-for-18 from the field with 11 rebounds in just 27 minutes. But perhaps the most impressive feat he pulled off the entire night was his dodging of a question that he knew from miles away was a social media booby trap.
Asked after the game what his favorite dish is, Zion Williamson rejected that question like a layup.
“You're trying to set me up. No matter what answer I give, social media going to clown me. So no comment,” Williamson said, of course in a hilarious manner.

You're not human if you did not at least chuckle hearing Williamson defy the question like he does to gravity whenever he goes up for a dunk.
Even Memphis Grizzlies point guard Ja Morant found that exchange –and people saying that Williamson sounds like internet personality Druski — comical.
