Zion Williamson is only 18 years old, but a 40 year old New Orleans sports favorite is passing him the torch.

The New Orleans Pelicans draft pick and expected generational talent Zion Williamson has quickly endeared himself to fans in south Louisiana, and they've done the same with him.

Returning to his hotel room today, Williamson had a gift from New Orleans Saints quarterback and future Hall of Famer Drew Brees.

Zion's first professional jersey is a good one, with a fitting message written on it from Brees.

"To Zion - Passing the torch to you! Who Dat!" - Drew Brees #9

Let's dance!
