Many things can derail a basketball career. Just ask former NBA point guard Ty Lawson.
Lawson played nine full seasons in the NBA—averaging 12.7 points and 6.0 assists—for the Nuggets, Toronto Raptors, Houston Rockets, Indiana Pacers and Sacramento Kings before heading to China to play for the Shandong Golden Stars. He would make his return with the Wizards in 2018, but would soon return to China for the 2018-19 season and is now a member of the Fujian Sturgeons.
Those days are now over forever, playing for the Sturgeons as well as any team in the CBA. Lawson has reportedly been banned for life after he posted some things about Chinese women on his Instagram story.
If you’re not familiar with the lingo, Law is saying that Chinese women got (cakes), meaning booty, (on the low) meaning it wasn’t something that was obvious before.
The next is a picture of what appears to be a Chinese woman or stripper bent over in front of him dancing or might be a stripper.
Either way, he is done forever.
Lawson was averaging 27.3 PPG, 2.6 steals, 8.7 assists, 5.5 rebounds, and shot 43% from behind the arc.
