Zion Williamson is just a 19-year-old rookie but he’s doing more for arena workers than some of the billionaire owners in the NBA.

On Friday afternoon Williamson took to Instagram and announced that he was going to cover the salaries of all Smoothie King arena workers for the next 30 days during the NBA’s stoppage of play due to the coronavirus outbreak.

While Zion’s generosity has been applauded, many took to Twitter to criticize the NBA owners who have not yet pledged to help out their arena workers.
