NBA Player Fined $150k for Eating Chicken Wings at a Strip Club

Clipper’s guard Lou Williams will have to sit out for two games after going to a strip club for dinner during a trip outside the NBA bubble.

The NBA is holding an abbreviated season within the confines of the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex located at Walt Disney World. Twenty-two teams are participating in eight games, while staff and players live and practice in an isolation zone deemed “the bubble.” 

Williams was approved for a trip off campus to attend a family funeral in Atlanta, but made an unsanctioned stop at strip club Magic City to eat some chicken wings at his “favorite restaurant in Atlanta.”  

In a since deleted Instagram photo, rapper Jack Harlow revealed Williams’ location at the club last Thursday.   

When Williams disclosed his activities to the NBA, the league enforced a 10-day quarantine period, which forced the Clipper’s guard to miss two games and caused him to forfeit 150k in salary.    

 

Retired pro baller and ESPN commentator, Kendrick Perkins, acknowledged that though Magic City’s wings “are fire,” Williams is a veteran that “knows better.” He went on to say that the Clippers should be focused on social justice and trying to win the title, but instead they have “to talk about Magic City, and Lou Will, and chicken wings. It’s just not fair and it was very irresponsible of Lou Will.”

Williamson shot back at Perkins on Twitter, “15 years in this business and the most dirt you have on my name is stopping to get hot wings during a pandemic. Perk. Shut up.”

Williams will not be eligible to play until the Clippers face off against the Suns on August 4.

I thought America was still a free country. Since when is a guy forbidden to go to a strip joint, unless he’s a priest or monk? Seriously? And maybe he really was there because of the food, not the nude girls? I think they’re being too controlling and someone needs to remind them with a SLEDGE HAMMER who does NOT control our lives.

it’s not the “strip club”, he probably would have drawn the same at “McDonalds” or “BurgerKing”. It’s the fact he violated his rules, broke quarantine, and was quarantined for 10 days. From what the story says, he was not fined, just just lost the equivalent of 2 games pay for being unable to play. Something about contracts and such.

I hate this ‘lockdown’ and totally disagree with it, but as a grownup who signed a contract, he can be held to it, even if it means quarantine.
