Lou Williams goes full bookie-mode for Nate Robinson-Jake Paul fight
Los Angeles Clippers guard Lou Williams may be seeing his name pop on trade rumors. However, that has not stopped the 3-time Sixth Man of the Year from tuning in to the Nate Robinson vs. Jake Paul bout on Saturday night. In fact, Sweet Lou even went full bookie-mode for the fight, going with his boy Nate Robinson to take the win.
I’m taking bets. Im rolling with Nate Rob 🥊🥊

The Robinson-Paul fight will serve as the co-main event to the highly-anticipated showdown between boxing legends Mike Tyson and Roy Jones Jr.
Paul, a known YouTube personality, actually has some boxing experience under his belt, having won his debut professional boxing match earlier this year. He also fought in a number of exhibition bouts prior to his pro debut. Meanwhile, Sunday will mark the first time that Robinson, a former NBA player and three-time Slam Dunk champ, will step into a boxing ring.
While much of the spot light has certainly gone the way of the Tyson-Jones Jr. main event, the undercard bout should also attract a lot of interest. Looking at it on the surface, it does seem like a random fight between an internet personality and a journeyman who played 12 seasons in the NBA. Nonetheless, the two have done their part in selling the fight with their trash talking on social media.
Lou Williams certainly took notice of this and has his eye balls on the television screen once Nate Robinson and Jake Paul throw fists at each other. And just watching alone isn’t enough. Sweet Lou is even willing to put his money on the line for his fellow hooper.
UPDATE: Jake Paul just knocked Nate Robinson out cold. Better pay up, Lou.
