A high-five seems to be a hard thing to get for Josh Hart. After almost making it a trait during his Los Angeles Lakers days, Hart brought it to New Orleans Pelicans. On Thursday, it was Zion Williamson who missed Josh Hart approaching for a high-five.
During the game against Oklahoma City Thunder, Williamson drew a foul against Chris Paul as Hart approached him to celebrate. Williamson however, didn’t have his attention towards Hart and went right past him.
Fans on twitter had funny reactions on seeing Hart in a similar situation again.
Since much before his NBA debut, Zion Williamson has been considered to be one of the most exciting prospects. Having drafted him with the first overall pick, New Orleans Pelicans had to wait before fielding him in an NBA game. They were extremely careful with the teenager. The Pelicans not only took care of the injury they also took measures to prevent Williamson from getting injured again.
After finally making his NBA debut last month, Williamson has been playing like he belongs there. He has returned over 20 points in seven of his first 10 games. He is contributing at an average of 22.1 points, 7.5 rebounds and 2.2 assists per game this season.
