[Source] - After leaving Barclays Center — mobbed by fans and with an NYPD escort — Williamson and his fam and friends hit up 800 Degrees Woodfired Kitchen in NYC for a Mardi Gras-themed bash.
We’re told the restaurant — which was shut down to the public — served up a bunch of pizzas, burgers, salads and seafood for the superstar baller and his crew. They also had a pop-a-shot in the house.
You know what? I love this move. There’s something so pure about Zion just throwing himself a pizza party for being the No. 1 pick. I keep forgetting this is a teenager and not someone who is a grown ass man. He’s just a dude who wants to celebrate by slamming some pizza.
Also love this move because every single human alive keeps making fat jokes at his expense for going to New Orleans. So he flips the game on the head by throwing himself a pizza party and get ahead of the jokes. The Mardi Gras theme is a nice touch, but I really wish he had some gumbo around too. Really play into the joke.
Now, as for the place? We have a score on it:
Can’t believe Zion didn’t want to give a score. Need him on a pizza review now. But, what a move. You know who loves pizza parties? Every single human. I need to know how much pizza Zion murdered.
