NBA Star Lou Williams Teams With Red Bull To Prank Hotel Patrons

Clippers star Lou Williams is serious on the court and will be all business this season as the LA Clippers are among the favorites to win the NBA Championship. The season hasn’t started quite yet, however, so Williams decided to team up with Red Bull to prank unsuspecting hotel patrons. 

Williams poses as a Hotel Manager. Yes, he’s the king of the hotel lobby.

During the prank, which took place over the weekend at Hotel Erwin in Venice Beach, the property was transformed into the “Halfcourt Hotel” to celebrate a weekend of 3×3 hoops featuring USA Basketball’s Red Bull 3X qualifier – the pathway to the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo.

 While the action was lit on the iconic Venice Beach courts, Lou Will was tricking guests and visitors inside this hoopers paradise as they approached the lobby desk.
