New Orleans Pelicans young core cheer Saints at Super Dome

On Monday night, as the New Orleans Saints hosted the Houston Texans to kick off their 2019 seasons, a small flock of Pels found themselves on the sidelines watching the Monday Night Football thriller. All three coated in Saints gear, core rookies Zion Williamson, Jaxson Hayes, and third-year guard Lonzo Ball looked on as the Saints eked out a 30-28 victory.

Appropriately, the anointed “savoir” of New Orleans basketball, Zion Williamson, kept a Drew Brees jersey tucked into his trousers; whether it was a fashion statement or simply a heat diversion method, it was nice to see the city’s young phenom representing their Super Bowl champion.
