As teams arrive at the NBA’s bubble in Orlando, former Duke basketball star Zion Williamson was sporting his Blue Devil sweatshirt upon arrival.

The Brotherhood is everywhere, and now it’s officially in the NBA’s bubble in Orlando, Florida.

Zion Williamson and the New Orleans Pelicans arrived at their specific resort on Wednesday evening, and the No. 1 overall pick was sporting his new Brotherhood sweatshirt that was made this year.

Williamson, who makes headlines for just about everything he does, also was in the news this week after a picture surfaced of him following a workout at the Pelicans facility in which he looked leaner and stronger than ever.

As the NBA will try and seclude 22 NBA teams for at least six weeks to complete its regular season and playoffs, teams are staggering their arrivals at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex, inside Walt Disney World, to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

The NBA world is hoping for Williamson and the Pelicans to have a long stay inside the bubble, but New Orleans will have to make up three and a half games in just eight games to catch the Memphis Grizzlies for the No. 8 seed in the Western Conference.

New Orleans is currently tied with the Portland Trail Blazers and Sacramento Kings for the No. 9 seed.

Prior to the NBA’s shutdown, Zion was averaging 23.6 points, 6.8 rebounds, and 2.2 assists per game in his rookie season, but because of a knee injury suffered in the preseason, he has only played in 19 games.
