Image shows off NBA freak’s popularity

Zion Williamson has taken the basketball world by storm and etched his name into the record books throughout his opening 10 games.

But ahead of the NBA All-Star Weekend and the Rising Stars contest, the superstar’s popularity was put into incredible contrast.

As all of the young NBA stars sat in booths for their media duties, the hoards of global reporters swarmed to get their questions in.

For some players it was easier for the media to get their questions across. For Zion, it was a completely different story.

The 19-year-old sensation had what looked like every single reporter clamouring to get a shot and ask the New Orleans Pelicans first pick a question.

Another superstar in the contest is Dallas Mavericks second year player Luka Doncic who drew a similar sized to Zion.

You have to feel for Minnesota Timberwolves player Josh Okogie who was positioned alongside Doncic and had only a handful of reporters in front of him asking questions.
