Rob and Louis return with a new episode of Same Old Clips to discuss the situation that has dominated NBA Twitter the past 24 hours – Lou Williams’ wings stop in Atlanta at a strip club. After that lighthearted segment, Rob and Louis go into a more somber topic: the Anti-Semitic comments made by former NBA player Stephen Jackson over the past couple weeks, and the broad support he’s received on social media. Finally, they close it out with thoughts on the Lakers game and the NBA playoffs in general.

    People are ABSOLUTELY making a big deal about Lou Williams’ situation because he went to a strip club (particularly after a funeral), and there’s still a large portion of this country that loves to clutch their pearls at the mere thought of such an establishment. If Lou had eaten wings at Buffalo Wild Wings or WingStop or something, this incident wouldn’t be getting even half of the scrutiny it’s getting now. Assuming that Lou wasn’t getting maskless lap dances from coughing, feverish strippers, then the actual issue here is that he ate indoors at all during the pandemic, and not that he ate indoors specifically at a strip club.

    P.S. The politics don’t bother me. The subject here is relevant to sports (it’s not like you guys all of a sudden brought up taxation policy or something), and it’s an important conversation to have – good discussion all around, guys.

      Chicken wings have cost the NBA players 20 days so far. Who will be the next victim to fall into their irresistible trap?

      Agreed chogokin, it’s pearl clutching over a strip club, not actual COVID risk assessment

      Thank you! Appreciate it, and glad to have the support in at least semi-controversial waters.

      I think there is a degree of element of truth to your statement that if it were a Wing Stop this would be a non issue. However, I do think that it was a bit careless and shortsighted for him to go to a strip club and use the classic excuse that it has “great food”. On top of that, we’re in a pandemic and when you’re under the spotlight, you do have to take a step back and see yourself from a public perspective. This was a bad decision and the league and organization should be angry.

      Nonetheless, whatever the reasons for him being there, I’m glad he didn’t catch Covid while out of the bubble. It would have been horrible to think that he caught the virus and then proceeded to potentially spread the disease to family, friends and teammates.
