Nets’ Kevin Durant claims Clippers’ Lou Williams is a Hall of Famer
Durant, one of the best players in NBA history, says Williams is a Hall of Famer:
“I mean Lou Will’s probably the No. 1 guy. I feel like he’s a Hall of Famer,” Durant told Quentin Richardson and Darius Miles on the Knuckle Heads Podcast. “Yeah, I feel like he’s of those guys that is a culture-changer as far as like setting the lane for NBA players, you know? Being that undersized, 6’2, 6’3.”
Williams has won the Sixth Man of the Year Award two straight seasons and three times overall in his career.
Last season for the Clippers, Williams averaged 20.0 points, 3.0 rebounds and 5.4 assists per game while shooting 42.5 percent from the field, 36.1 percent from beyond the arc and 87.6 percent from the free-throw line. The Clippers guard is a walking bucket who has perfected his craft of scoring off the bench.
Now 32, Williams has career averages of 14.2 points, 2.2 rebounds and 3.3 assists in 937 games with the Philadelphia 76ers, Atlanta Hawks, Toronto Raptors, Los Angeles Lakers, Houston Rockets and Clippers. He’s never made an All-Star team, but Williams’ three Sixth Man of the Year Awards are impressive and he could win the award again this season.
