Zion Williamson is officially the No. 1 overall pick in the NBA Draft, going first overall to the New Orleans Pelicans.

The former Duke Blue Devils star teared up after getting selected and broke down a bit during his interview on ESPN.

Clearly, Williamson is excited to be heading to New Orleans.

"Let's dance," he said.

Williamson will be rocking the same jersey number in New Orleans that he did at Duke.

The NBA Draft is being televised on ESPN.
