2020 has brought us just about everything, but I’m not sure anybody had a stripper snitching on an NBA player who left a bubble to allegedly pick up hot wings that are named after him.
Not many people believed Los Angeles Clippers guard Lou Williams when he said he was only picking up wings during his now-infamous trip to the Magic City strip club while outside the NBA bubble.
Now, one of the club’s dancers has poked a major hole in his story when she told the Los Angeles Times that she was one of multiple dancers to perform for the reigning Sixth Man of the Year:
“Working the day shift from 3 to 9 p.m., Aries said she danced last week for Williams, a regular at the club who has a dish named after him: the “Louwill Lemon Pepper BBQ wings.”
“After placing an order with the Magic City kitchen, the high-scoring Clippers guard ambled around the club, Aries said, and she was one of a few dancers who performed for him, keeping a six-foot distance.”
“He tipped very well,” she said.
The entire saga started over a photo being posted of him and rapper Jack Harlow at Magic City, leading to an investigation by the NBA. Williams had left the bubble with an excused absence to deal with a personal matter, later revealed to be the death of his grandfather.
Williams reportedly told investigators he was only there to get wings.
The NBA elected to extend his mandatory quarantine from the standard four days for excused absences to 10 days.
