Report: Zion Williamson Jersey Sales Breaking Records
Zion Williamson hasn't played a game for the New Orleans Pelicans, but the rookie phenom is already setting merchandise records for the league, per a report from Lisa Fickenscher and Nicolas Vegas of the New York Post.
Williamson, the 6-foot-7, 285-pound power forward who took college basketball by storm in his one-and-done season, was snapped up by the New Orleans Pelicans last Thursday. During the next five days, he sold more $110 Nike jerseys and $32 T-shirts than all the first-round picks in the 2018 NBA Draft combined, according to Fanatics.
Fanatics also reports Williamson sold more jerseys and shirts in the five days following the draft than any draftee in NBA history.
If anyone is still doubting Zion's impact on the Pelicans franchise and the NBA as a whole, here's another reason to cast your doubt aside.
His approval rating is through the roof, as sports fans everywhere love Zion.
