Williams on having two girlfriends at the same time
On and off the court, Lou Williams is not your typical basketball player.
It was reported in 2014 that the shooting guard was dating two women at the same time, and they were fine with it.
Not many males could make the situation work, but it did for them, so he can add another achievement to his resume.
Lou Will was in a relationship with Ashley Henderson and Rece Mitchell,
and the arrangement perplexed many and became a big issue on the internet.
The media milked the story, but if Williams had his way, he would have portrayed it differently, as he revealed in a Bleacher Report interview with Taylor Rooks.
“People thought they were sisters, which I thought was ludicrous.
I didn’t like the fact that I couldn’t control what was said or how it was perceived.
Both of those women are mothers to my children, not just random girls I hang out with…”
While the Atlanta Hawks shooting guard apparently split up with Anderson in 2020,
that didn’t stop him from giving advice to some admirers who were wondering how to introduce two girlfriends to each other.
This tweet is enough to get Williams into the Hall of Fame! But, all kidding aside, only Lou could pull this off.
And what probably made it work for Williams is his respect for both girls — both are the moms of his children,
and if the media perceives it that way, baseless charges or speculations would not have surfaced.
Williams discusses his possible retirement.
Williams is a fantastic player who could have been an All-Star but opted to establish his career as a steady bench guy.
He has three Sixth Man of the Year accolades but has never participated in an All-Star game.
The 16-year veteran discussed a probable retirement after the 2020/21 NBA season in the same Bleacher Report interview.
Providing solid productivity despite limited minutes or uncertainty about whether or not he would play speaks
volumes about Williams’ professional commitment to the game.
Fans say that Lou is not a bench player because he comes off the bench toward the conclusion of games,
but that is a testimonial to his influence when he is on the court.
Not all athletes are willing to give up playing time or points for their teammates.
Willams is quite content to watch the game from the bench and be ready when his number is called.
When all is said and done, Williams will be remembered as one of the best bench players in NBA history.
Williams has the most points by a non-starter in the league, and despite his off-court difficulties,
he deserves to be respected by basketball fans.
Lou Wiliams has constructed his own legacy and controlled his narrative throughout his whole career,
rising from 45th overall pick to the best bench player ever.
Whatever you think of him, that is something to admire.
