Pelicans Social Media Destroyed Stephen A. Smith After He Cruelly Fat-Shamed Zion Williamson (VIDEO)

Stephen A. Smith has never been shy about talking about Zion Williamson and letting anyone know that he is fat.

During a segment on ESPN’s Get Up on Friday, Mike Greenberg asked Smith which NBA team is under the most pressure entering the second half of the regular season.

When the Pelicans came up, Smith exploded on Zion out of nowhere.

“Zion Williamson, it’s not about his game. It’s about how many burgers he’s eating and whether or not he’s going to be in shape or is he going to keep eating McDonald’s and keep having chefs clamoring for him to come to their restaurants,” Smith said. “That’s what he has to prove: that the chefs don’t love him any longer. That he’s committed to playing basketball and being in shape.”

The New Orleans Pelicans surely saw what he said and they fired back by posting a snapshot of his senior year basketball stats for Winston-Salem State University alongside “highlights.”

Smith later responded to the Pelicans on X:

Willamson is listed at 6’6″ and 284 pounds.

Missed games has ben a problem for him since entering the league. He played only 29 games last year and missed the entire 2021-22 season.

Williamson has averaged 22.5 points on 58.5 percent shooting, 5.4 rebounds and 4.9 assists for a 34-22 Pels team sitting fifth in the Western Conference after winning eight of nine.

The Pelicans are 34-22 and that is good for 5th in the Western Conference.
