Lou Williams is considered one of the greatest sixth men in NBA history and his Clippers teammates are well aware of that. In fact, Paul George went further during a recent interview, praising Williams for his career, calling him a Hall of Famer.
George joined the Knuckleheads podcast of Quentin Richardson and Darius Miles, where he talked about his teammate, how great he is and what should happen with Williams once he retires from the association. He revealed he was happy to be surrounded by several Hall of Famers, Williams included (27-minute mark).
“It’s been great, I feel like everything aligned at the right time. Year 10 for me, I’m playing with a Hall of Fame coach, I’m playing with a Hall of Fame player — multiple of them, man you could have a case for Lou [Williams] being a Hall of Fame player, too, with his career.
“I just feel like everything lined up, I’m back at home, it’s easy on my mom, my parents, I just feel like everything was positioned where it was supposed to be for year 10 for me,” George said during his appearance on the podcast.
Lou Will has won the Sixth Man of the Year award three times during his career, becoming one of the best bench players in the history of the league. He’s been part of the Clippers for a couple of years now, helping the team to increase his level in recent seasons, becoming their biggest contributor off the bench.
Williams, alongside George, Kawhi Leonard and the rest of the Clippers are considered favorites to win it all this season. They have a great group of players that will make a lot of noise in Orlando next month.
Lou has averaged 20.6 points and 5.4 assists per game with the Clippers in three campaigns.
