Zion Williamson instantly became a favorite of New Orleans sports fans, and that includes other professional athletes -- case in point, New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees. The Saints QB had a little gift ready for Williamson when the NBA's number one draft pick this year arrived at his hotel room:

"To Zion -- Passing the torch to you! Who Dat!" read the message from Brees, written across the number nine on his jersey. 

Williamson acknowledged the weight of the comment: "'Passing the torch' -- am I ready to take that on?"
