Zion Williamson will attend his first All-Star game of his career this season and fellow sophomore Ja Morant congratulated the Pelicans’ superstars.

Williamson, who was in the 2019 draft class with Morant, is currently recording 25.1 points, 6.8 rebounds and 3.1 assists per game shooting 61.6 percent from the field.

The Duke product is among the best in the league scoring in the paint having his name alongside back-to-back MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo inside the paint.

On the other hand, Ja Morant started strong, however an ankle issue slowed him down, after registering 44 points in the second game of the season with the Grizzlies.

Since then, he is not so consistent to make the All-Star game in the loaded Western Conference backcourt that consists of Steph Curry, Luka Doncic, Damian Lillard, Donovan Mitchell and Chris Paul.

Morant is putting up 19.1 points and 7.9 assists for the tough Grizzlies, who, so far, are competing for a play in tournament spot during the 2020/21 campaign.
