The Pelicans have made the play-offs just once in the last five years. "A lot of worldwide people think like this also, I'm not an, er, anomaly (I always struggle with that word, mate)".

"I feel like there is a lot of my game that I wasn't able to showcase a year ago due to just trying to fit in with the team, find my place", Williamson said, via Christian Clark of the New Orleans Advocate. Unfortunately for him and the Pelicans, Williamson underwent knee surgery to fix a torn right meniscus before the season even began, and he spent the first three months of the year on the bench.

Still, the 6-foot-6 (198-cm), 284-pound (129-kg) Williamson made impressions with both his consistent production and more than a few highlight-reel finishes at the rim.

"Of course, I'm looking forward to that very much", Williamson said.

"I do the best I can to try and represent them ..." When asked about what he expects from Williamson this season, Griffin said the best is yet to come.

"Obviously I'm going to share whatever experience or knowledge that I have, but it won't just be me there's many other players I mean as a team. He can just kinda swear at me whenever he wants which is great - that's how I like to be coached anyway". "I'm hoping year two is going to be a lot different".

It will certainly be that.

Additionally, a record 8,500 people are in hospitals, including more than 2,000 in intensive care units. California on Wednesday reported more than 20,000 new coronavirus cases, the most ever in one day.

The person tasked with getting that done is new Pelicans head coach Stan Van Gundy.

Williamson said he has spoken with Van Gundy and has gotten a "great" impression of him. "Staying with an old school dude".

"Find me a 4 and 5 together anywhere in the league that's as physical as those two guys (Williamson & Adams)", Van Gundy said. I can see his love and passion for the game even when he's showing me small things within the game.

Steven Adams says he will miss his former teammates at Oklahoma City Thunder but is keen to embrace his new home.

Now, after multiple moves during the free agency and trade season, the Pelicans have completed their squad, adding one of the most dominant centers in the game in Steven Adams, as well as veteran guard, Eric Bledsoe.

Griffin said that some of the Pelicans' most efficient lineups last season featured Williamson playing alongside another non-shooting big, Derrick Favors. "We're going to need to keep him healthy and let him grow as a player", Griffin said.

When the subject turned to the nature of his offseason workouts or elements of his game on which he worked hardest to develop, Williamson largely deflected, saying, "I can't go into too much detail because I just don't like doing that".
