Reigning Sixth Man of the Year Lou Williams names son Syx

Lou Williams has won Sixth Man of the Year the last two years. He also won in 2015. He’s tied with Jamal Crawford for the most Sixth Man of the Year awards, three.

At this point, thriving off the bench is William’s identity.

The Clippers guard passed some of that onto his newborn son, Syx.

FOX Sports West:

Williams on FOX Sports West:

I always said if I had a son I, was going to give him a unique name. And nothing was coming to me. So, I just said, you know what? I’m going to name him Syx, spell it a little different, and we just had some fun with it.

This is the most interesting name for the child of an NBA player since Iman Shumpert named his daughter Iman Shumpert Jr.

At least Williams didn’t name his son after a variation of the other number most closely associated with him – two.
