The New Orleans Pelicans and their social media team should be in a festive mood one day after picking up the legend that is Zion Williamson in the 2019 NBA Draft.

Apparently, those who run the team’s Twitter account did not get the memo.

The NFL’s Carolina Panthers congratulated the South Carolina native and former Duke star for being the No. 1 pick in the draft.

New Orleans’ response wasn’t exactly friendly, shading both the Panthers and the NBA’s Charlotte Hornets.

Saltiness? Pettiness? We’re not too sure where that response came from.

But the Pelicans didn’t stop there. Instead, they took aim at one rando on Twitter.

Alas, the New Orleans Saints were there to save the day.

At least one team is showing Williamson what is means to be classy on social media.
