Clippers, still scattered in and out of the NBA bubble, come together in defense of Lou Williams

first_imgWhile Clippers coach Doc Rivers was philosophical about Williams’ out-of-the-bubble activities and the price he’s paying for it — “Lou obviously made a mistake, but he wasn’t intending to make a mistake,” the coach said — Perkins was more critical of the 15-year veteran.“I done been to Magic City, the wings are fire,” Perkins said on the program “Get Up.” “But in this case, in all seriousness, c’mon, Lou Will, you gotta do better, man. During this pandemic, you have to do better.”Perkins then tweeted out the clip, adding: “It’s disturbing when a Rookie in Zion Williamson can act more Mature than NBA vet Lou Williams!!!”Williams tweeted back: “15 years in this business and the most dirt you have on my name is stopping to get hot wings during a pandemic. Perk. Shut up. And stop laughing and saying it’s just tv when you run into me too.”Perkins rebutted: “To small homeboy … stay in your lane lil fella!!! #outtamyweightclass.” Still shorthanded, the Clippers welcomed back center Ivica Zubac, who said he was happy to rejoin his teammates on the floor for 13 minutes Monday, their first action together since he tested positive for the coronavirus before July 4.But while the Clippers went through the paces in preparation of Thursday’s big restart opener against the Lakers, a more heated back and forth was happening off the court — on Twitter.Kendrick Perkins, the retired NBA player who’s now an ESPN analyst, scolded Lou Williams on air and via tweet for the guard’s trip to an Atlanta gentlemen’s club, reportedly to order food, while he was excused from the bubble to pay his final respects to a loved one who died recently.Williams and a handful of his teammates and former teammates retorted, tweeting in defense of Williams, who was met with a 10-day quarantine upon his return to the bubble. That ruling means the three-time Sixth Man of the Year will miss the first two of the Clippers’ eight seeding games at Walt Disney World Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Florida. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorcenter_img That got the attention of Clippers forward Montrezl Harrell, who currently is outside of the bubble dealing with a family matter. “Big Perk, what you not gone do is talk wild to the OG, when you don’t got all the facts,” Harrell tweeted.Soon, Patrick Beverley also tweeted at Perkins, and former Clippers Sindarius Thornwell and Jerome Robinson, now respectively with New Orleans and Washington, tweeted about him.“That says everything about Lou,” said Zubac, who reported that he felt tired for a few days when he had the coronavirus, but didn’t otherwise have symptoms. “I played with Lou in my rookie year with the Lakers. I’ve been here with Lou for a while now, and Lou was my bud. He’s been a great guy. Everywhere I’ve played with him, he’s … one of the most liked guy in the whole organization. He’s always trying to get everyone together on the road.”The Clippers’ challenge now: Getting everyone together on the court.Williams still will be quarantined when the Clippers face off with the Lakers in the restart opener Thursday (6 p.m., Fox Sports Prime Ticket, TNT), and it’s unsure whether Harrell is expected to be back in the bubble by then.Otherwise, Rivers said he expects the Clippers to have Landry Shamet available Thursday and described Beverley’s participation as “probably a maybe.”Beverley returned Sunday from an excused absence to attend to a personal matter and reportedly will have to quarantine for four days before he can rejoin his team. Shamet, whose Instagram feed documented his arrival in Florida this weekend, was on the bench Monday but didn’t play.“I just know that we know we’re behind,” said Rivers before the Clippers lost 106-102 to Sacramento in their third and final warmup, in which Kawhi Leonard — 12 of 46 from the field during scrimmage play — logged 30 minutes and finally found a groove late en route to 17 points on 6-of-22 shooting.“We know that a lot of teams have had their guys throughout. We haven’t. We’ve had up to five of our key players out — six, at one point. So it’s not been the way we planned it when we got here, but things don’t go as planned all the time and you’ve got to adjust, and I think our team is doing that.”As for Williams’ lengthy league-mandated quarantine: “I don’t know if it’s fair or not. I just know intent,” Rivers said. “Lou obviously made a mistake, but he wasn’t intending to make a mistake, you know? So we get over things pretty quickly here. We know why we’re here. Lou knows why we’re here, so we move on.“I didn’t look at it as a suspension or anything like that. I just looked at it as they know he was in the public, so that’s the protocol. That’s about it.”last_img read more
