Gift follows launch of Naruto franchise collaboration with Jordan brand athletic wear
Not long after the official launch of the Jordan brand collaboration with the Naruto franchise that will see an apparel line and sneakers launch at retail in mid-May, NBA player and star power forward for the New Orleans Pelicans, Zion Williamson took to his Twitter account to announce that he has received a special one-of-a-kind gift illustration from franchise creator Masashi Kishimoto. Williamson has made no secret of his nearly lifelong fandom for the franchise which has been a major influence on the athlete's life and path to becoming a professional basketball player.
Honored to share a one-of-a-kind drawing by Masashi Kishimoto, the creator of Naruto. My interest in anime began at a young age and still inspires me today. Naruto’s motto was to always believe in yourself and everything will work out. #BelieveIt pic.twitter.com/TLzyMDmwjS— Zion Williamson (@Zionwilliamson) April 26, 2022
