Zion Williamson and R.J. Barrett are officially no longer teammates. The former Duke Blue Devils stars have been taken in the 2019 NBA Draft.

The New Orleans Pelicans took Williamson with the No. 1 overall pick. The New York Knicks selected Barrett at No. 3.

Williamson had plenty of media obligations to attend following his selection at No. 1 overall, but he made sure to be by the stage when the Knicks pick was made.

Video shows how Williamson reacted to his former teammate getting taken.

"That's my boy!" he yelled.

It's pretty awesome:

It remains to be seen how Zion and RJ will fare as NBA players, but both of them have come across extremely well as young men tonight.

The NBA Draft is being televised on ESPN.
