Zion Williamson: the Pelicans’ generational talent

Number 1 in the 2019 draft, Zion Williamson is considered a generational talent. Basketballers like him have only been around for a decade. His imposing physique, combined with his mobility and incredible athleticism, make him a superstar in the making. His best dunks have been seen around the world. Every team would love to recruit him. Nevertheless, Williamson is prone to injury. To date, he has missed over 80 regular-season games since the start of his NBA career. The New Orleans Pelicans star, who plays the strong-wing position, attracts a lot of attention. Like LeBron James and Victor Wembanyama, fans are excited by the prospect of seeing him play.

New Orleans Pelicans ticket office

Tickets to a New Orleans Pelicans home game are pretty cheap. This is in stark contrast to the prices charged in the big American markets, such as New York and Los Angeles. It costs a minimum of $6 to enter the stadium and watch the game from the back rows of the stands. If you want a much better seat, you’ll have to shell out several dozen greenbacks. At this price, you’ll have access to the first crown of the arena. And for a hundred euros, you can get a seat centered on the playing field. All while being positioned in the first twenty rows of the stands. New Orleans is a popular destination for NBA fans on a budget!
