Lou Williams is still the subject of jokes for leaving the bubble on his infamous trip to Magic City
Williams is serving his 10-day quarantine for his trip to Magic City, a strip club in the Orlando area, after he was cleared to leave the NBA bubble for personal reasons. The trip wasn’t for the reasons one might assume, as Williams was evidently just hungry, and got some wings.
Still, he’s been the brunt of jokes for just under a week now, despite having nothing but hungry intentions. Williams told the NBA he was merely leaving the bubble to attend the funeral of a close family friend, Paul Williams (no relation). Williams must now miss the first two games of the Los Angeles Clippers restart, including their game on Thursday night against the Lakers.
Kenny Smith of ‘Inside the NBA’ had some fun at Williams’ expense
The ‘Inside the NBA’ crew routinely jokes about the Association, as they’re qualified to do given they’re (outside of Ernie Johnson) former players. While Smith might normally have a point, given the fact that Williams was attending a funeral AND that the Magic City wings look amazing, we’re going to back Lou on this one.
Yep, those look absolutely amazing. Are they worth breaking the bubble for? Perhaps on a middling playoff team, sure, but the Clippers are among the favorites in the West, and Williams is averaging over 17 points per contest. The chicken can wait, Lou!
Williams should be able to put all of this behind him once the first two NBA seeding games are complete. Thankfully for the Clippers sake, he won’t miss any actual playoff action, which Doc Rivers group has expressed as their ultimate goal, anyway.
