Former Duke basketball standout, and current New Orleans Pelicans superstar Zion Williamson, has taken a lot of heat during his professional career for his conditioning and lack of effort on the court, as well as his seeming inability to stay healthy.
Just a few weeks ago, it was reported that the Pels organization is reportedly struggling to get their star forward to understand the importance of diet and exercise on his career:
Williamson’s poor work ethic has been a source of frustration for the Pelicans since they drafted him No. 1 in 2019. The Pelicans have tried to surround Williamson with veterans who have track records of maximizing their potential. The team signed JJ Redick in 2019. In 2022, they traded for CJ McCollum.
None of it has made an impact.
The Pelicans have repeatedly stressed to Williamson that his diet and conditioning need to improve. Williamson, multiple team sources have told The Times-Picayune, ‘doesn’t listen.’”
“I’m not exaggerating, I’m quoting people… You’ve got chefs in New Orleans who love him. They’re looking for him. Every chef there wants to meet him because they know he’ll show up to their restaurant.
The word out on Zion Williamson is that ‘He’ll eat the table’. I’m quoting. ‘He’ll eat the table.’ What in the hell is going on with Zion Williamson?”
And it seems that the criticism is just coming from all angles now – including from…adult film stars?
Now, Moriah Mills has a…well let’s say a personal connection to Zion.
This summer, Williamson took to social media to announce that he was having a baby, which triggered adult film star Moriah Mills to call out the former college basketball standout for sleeping with multiple women, including herself.
Since she found out about Williamson having a child with another woman, she has threatened to drop sex tapes, requested that Zion be traded from the Pelicans, and has even had Zion’s name tattooed on her face.
So yeah, safe to say their relationship isn’t on good terms.
And in a recent video posted to TikTok, Mills didn’t hold back after claiming that Zion’s publicist was talking sh*t about her:
“Here’s some advice, Zion Williamson, since you want to send your publicist to talk sh*t about me every other freaking week.
How about you get on a treadmill, speed 3, level 12, and maybe you’ll lose some weight. Go on it for like an hour or two.
Second, how about you stop drinking sodas?
Three, how about you practice doing three pointers? Everybody’s tired of seeing you do dunks all freaking day. Learn another move. It’s getting boring and tired. You’re tired and boring, just like you were in bed.”
