Zion Williamson has grown up in the era of social media, so he completely gets it.
If he were to tell the world about his favorite Thanksgiving food — something that divides the country, from turkey (is it overrated?) to side dishes (just ask us after our Thanksgiving food draft earlier this week) — he would be trending for all the wrong reasons.
“Zion loves turkey? So basic!” they’d say.
“Zion loves dinner rolls?” they might say on Twitter, with awful jokes about his weight.
So Williamson, when asked on Wednesday night, made the right call.
“You’re trying to set me up!” he replied. “No matter what I answer I give, social media is gonna clown me. So, no comment.”
“You tryna set me up….no matter what I answer I give, social media gonna clown me. So no comment.”
