Damn, that isht cray…
Philadelphia 76ers reserve guard Lou Williams has crafted a reputation for himself as a gunslinger. On Monday night, for example, Williams hit for 25 points, including three impressive 3-pointers, while taking 17 shots and dishing two assists in a loss to the Portland Trail Blazers.
This week, though, Williams found himself on the other end of a real barrel.
On Saturday, Williams posted a cryptic message on Twitter. “Almost got robbed today,” Williams wrote. “But homie said he recognized me and the good I’ve done for his hood so that made him change his mind. Wow.”
On Monday, Williams explained the situation in greater detail to the Philadelphia Daily News, saying that he was confronted by a man who tapped on his car’s window with a gun.
“A guy tried to rob me but decided not to because of whatever I do in the community,” said Williams. “He’s a Lou Williams fan, so he didn’t rob me.”
“There’s crime everywhere,” said Williams. “I was debating whether to pull off to help the guy. The gun was already out. He did all the talking, and we came up with a solution before i could really say much. I treated him to McDonald’s.”
Wow, you would think that being recognized as a famous basketball player would make someone WANT to rob you. We’re glad that it worked out for Lou and the unnamed would-be assailant.
