NBA free agent and three-time Sixth Man of the Year Lou Williams has got some time on his hands these days. “Lemon Pepper” Lou clapped back at a Twitter user who tried to troll him about having two wives.
I sure did, but it wasn’t these two. Mind ya business https://t.co/tw70PklYNs

Williams is a legend to certain individuals. Having the ability to be a walking bucket and manage two women at the same time is something a certain segment of the population dreams of. Williams lived it.
Drake rapped about Williams on the track “6 Man” from his “If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late” album.
Boomin’ out in South Gwinnett like Lou Will6 man like Lou Will, 2 girls and they get along like I’m… Like I’m Lou Will
In 2020 while on an excused absence from the Orlando NBA quarantine bubble he attended a funeral viewing for a family friend. After the viewing, Williams went to the Magic City gentlemen’s club in Atlanta for dinner. When asked why he went to Magic City, Williams said it was for the lemon pepper chicken wings.

All jokes aside, he’s played in the NBA for 16 seasons. Williams was drafted in the second round by the Philadelphia 76ers in 2005. He won his first Sixth Man of the Year award as a member of the Toronto Raptors in 2015, averaging a career high 15.5 points per game.
The best three years of his career came on the Los Angeles Clippers from 2018-2020. He won two more Sixth Man of The Year Awards and averaged over 20 points per game in two of those three seasons.
In 2019 he and then Clippers teammate Patrick Beverley had a funny postgame press conference after Game 6 of the first round of the Western Conference playoffs.
The Clippers lost to the Golden State Warriors in six games, and Beverley and Williams were asked about how they could’ve guarded Kevin Durant better. Durant averaged 35 points, five rebounds, and five assists on 56/40/94 shooting splits and dropped 50 points in the closeout game.
“I promise we tried. We tried everything,” Williams said. “We had several different coverages for KD and … sometimes you come across special people and it doesn’t matter what you send to them. It’s no scheme, it’s no defense, it’s no nothing that you can do with special people. He’s one of them, and he showed it tonight. He put them guys on his shoulders. Even the game he came out and said ‘I’m Kevin Durant y’all know who I am.’ That’s a bold statement to make when you about to go see some guys that’s really competitive.”
After his tenure with the Clippers Williams spent last season with the Atlanta Hawks. His second stint with the team. He played 56 games for the Hawks and averaged six points, one rebound and one assist per game.
Despite those numbers he could still likely help a contending team off the bench in limited minutes. So there is still a possibility that a team picks him up before the season ends.
In addition to playing for the Hawks twice, the Clippers, 76ers and Raptors Williams has also played for the Houston Rockets and Los Angeles Lakers.
