Zion Williamson reveals what advice he would like from LeBron
Zion Williamson has more hype surrounding him than any top overall draft pick since LeBron James, and his game has also been frequently compared to LeBron’s. It only makes sense, then, for Williamson to seek advice from the man who is supposed to eventually pass him the NBA torch.
LeBron has offered to share some wisdom with Williamson, and the 18-year-old said after he was drafted by the New Orleans Pelicans on Thursday night that he is very open to listening. He also shared some specific questions he might ask LeBron.
LeBron James says he has advice for Zion Williamson. Zion said he'll take Bron up on his offer: "I probably will hit him up. Hopefully he responds to me. My questions would probably be what do I have to do to maintain, what do I have to do to just try to make my way to the top."

In addition to having natural-born talent, James is one of the hardest workers in the history of the NBA. Williamson could do a lot worse than trying to model his game and work ethic after LeBron’s.
The way Williamson reacted after being drafted on Thursday appears to prove he has remained humble despite all the hype, and that should only help his career.
