  • Zion Williamson Draws Inspiration From The Notorious B.I.G.

    Most NBA players still drawing checks from their rookie deal listen to more modern artists like Drake or Future. Herb Jones shared during media day that he has both on his playlist, in between some Gunna and Meek Mill. Zion Williamson went old school, ending his Media Day availability with a story of being inspired by the Notorious B.I.G.

    Williamson cited ''Ready to Die'' as a go-to album to get him through tough times. It helped to change his perspective on dealing with stress and feeling like the weight of the world is on his shoulders. "That album, lyrically, how he talked about stress, what he was dealing with feeling the weight of the world on your shoulders...Feeling like you are standing alone. That album helped shift my mindset to find true resolve within the game. I'm 22 and have been through a lot in the past year and some change. There are some things you wish didn't happen. From that album you just learn, that's life. Things are going to happen. You just have to roll with them."
