To recall, Sweet Lou drew a ton of flak for going to the Atlanta-based restaurant/club while on an excused leave from the bubble prior to the beginning of the seeding games. Lou Williams intended to attend a memorial service for the death of a loved one. However, photos of the Clippers 6th man hanging out at Magic City surfaced on social media.
Nonetheless, this is a good move on Magic City’s part. Maybe they could send Williams some free chicken wings while they’re at it. However, it’s probably going to take more than that to get the three-time 6th Man of the Year’s spirits up.
Nothing may make Williams feel better right now. L.A. just saw their season end in disappointing fashion. The Clippers blew a 3-1 series lead to the Nuggets, which, in turn, became the only team in NBA history to win multiple playoff series by coming back from a 3-1 deficit.
The Clippers were one of the heavy favorites to win this year’s NBA championship. Thus, going down in the second round certainly makes this postseason run all the more disappointing.
For his part, Williams did not really have a great series against the Nuggets. He averaged just 10.0 points throughout the series on a paltry 35.4 percent shooting, both of which were way below his regular-season marks of 18.2 points on 41.8 percent shooting.
This should be an interesting off-season for the Steve Ballmer-owned ball club. Will there be changes to the roster? How will Kawhi Leonard and Paul George respond to this next season? Certainly, falling short of their lofty expectations will generate many questions and speculations for the franchise while they’re on vacation.
