Lou Williams is one of the best sixth men the NBA has ever seen and one of the most entertaining players in the league. The Atlanta Hawks veteran always has something interesting to share with the public.
Despite his controversies, Lou Will is one of the most beloved players in the league. That's why whenever he speaks, people listen. The player made a big claim about the association, calling it 'too political,' seemingly throwing shade at some players.
During an interview with Barstool Sports' "Million Dollaz Worth Of Game," Williams shared his thoughts on the current NBA and how easy it is for players to lose the love for the game.
Gillie Da King: "Do you think a lot of players, through their journeys, lose their love?"
Williams: "For sure. For sure. S**t is so political. The career I've had, I've never made $10 million a year. It's easy to lose your love for this shit, because it's business."
Gillie Da King: "So you definitely believe there's player overseas right now that could play in the NBA?"
Williams: "There are guys in the NBA that should be in no fucking league."
It's unclear if he thought of a specific player when he made these claims, but many fans agree with the former Los Angeles Lakers, Clippers player. Incredibly, he has never made $10 million in a season despite being one of the most incredible sixth men of all time.
As Williams said, this is business, and teams will make decisions that won't please everybody. It's easy to lose the love for the game, but that won't change the way things are handled now.
