It took awhile, but Clippers guard Lou Williams is finally shifting away from his previously-defensive stance about his trip to Magic City strip club.
There was a lack of accountability involved, as Williams left the Orlando bubble to attend a funeral, but was spotted in a photo at Magic City. He was hit with a 10-day quarantine by the NBA as a result, yet rather than admitting fault, he went with a story about going for the lemon-pepper wings.
However, he was essentially caught in the act, as a Magic City stripper came out and said Williams paid for lap dances from her. He’s now been backed into a corner, and has finally admitted his decision to hit up Magic City was not a good one.
“In hindsight, I think as far as the public safety issue goes, I probably could have made a better-quality decision,” Williams said, via Ohm Youngmisuk of ESPN.com. “I was a little naïve in that aspect. I went somewhere after a viewing of somebody I considered a mentor, somebody I looked up to, first Black man I seen with legal money in my life.”
It’s about time he changed his tune. If his trip to one of the most popular strip clubs in the world really was all about the wings, then he can get contactless carry-out next time — without even entering the venue.
