Lou Williams is fighting his reputation as the ‘party animal’

We don’t know if we’ll see each other again Lou Williams On the ground since the former 6th best player in the NBA hasn’t found a club yet. At around 36, he thinks he can still get some points off the bench, and he’ll still have to fight his reputation as an individual, but also as a “party animal”.

A guest on “Draymond Green Show” Williams is back in quarantine as he passes the bubble in 2020. Leaving the bubble to attend the funeral of a loved one’s father, Lou Williams took the opportunity to go to Atlanta. striptease club. The problem is that rapper Jack Harlow, who was with him, posted his pass to “Magic City” on social networks, prompting the National Basketball Association to investigate the event, and quarantine him for 10 days.

It was hard for me, because I felt like I got to a point where everything I accomplished and how I behaved in my career no longer mattered, and they were just trying to associate my name with some stupid stuff. He says.

A dish bearing his name in the strip club

Williams was transferred a few months later by the Clippers to the Atlanta team, first planning to end his career, before finally taking on this new challenge. But that party animal’s label still sticks to its skin…

I’ve fought what people say about me. I was fighting these stories because they were trying to make me look like an idiot. As if I was spending my time partying. I said it’s not my way of life. Let’s not get started… I’m coming to the end of my career. I’m in my 15th year in the NBA, and you’re all talking like I’ve been partying all this time.. »

For Williams, his escape to a strip club was insignificant, and he wasn’t even there to celebrate. He simply went there to eat chicken wings, so famous now after his visit, that he bore his name, “Louwill Lemon Pepper BBQ”. He also introduced the name a few weeks later.

I fought against what they were trying to make me do: for someone who slipped out of the bubble to go to Magic City. Was it the right decision? In hindsight, maybe not. But at the time, I didn’t have a party on my mind, and I didn’t think I was doing anything wrong. »
