Lou Williams is a professor in the humble gunner
Lou Williams has never changed. Born and raised in a poor Los Angeles neighborhood, he has never lost his edge, even when he is the most decorated player in the NBA. Like Allen Iverson, he learned from Jermaine Dupri and others. Despite his success, he is still a humble guy, who does not promote his music or attend photo shoots. Instead, his fans speak for him.
As a basketball player, Lou Williams has developed a cult following. Aside from being a fan favorite on the court, he was a community fixture, and one of the few players who became famous for his good works and selflessness. On Christmas Eve 2011, a man allegedly threatened Lou with a gun. The pair managed to talk the man out of shooting Williams and praising his play.
The basketball legend went from obscurity to fame in just one year. He went straight from high school to the NBA, and played as a junior with the Philadelphia 76ers. He also became Georgia’s “Mr. Basketball” and won three Sixth Man Awards. In his early career, Williams also played for the Atlanta Hawks. He is still active on social media, and his social networking accounts include TeamLou23 and Louwillville.
