Former NBA big man turned outspoken ESPN analyst Kendrick Perkins said what a lot of people were thinking about Lou Williams: What were you thinking? A strip club? To pick up some wings? Really?

Williams stood his ground and was having none of that.

Williams was granted permission to leave the NBA’s restart bubble in Orlando to attend a memorial service for a family member, something he did.

However, while out he detoured by the Magic City strip club in Atlanta, where rapper Jack Harlow posted a picture with Williams on his Instagram story Thursday night. Harlow quickly deleted it, but nothing dies on the Internet.

Williams owned up to being in the club to NBA investigators. Williams insisted this was all about dinner — the club does sell “LouWill lemon pepper BBQ wings” — and that he was not hanging out in the club.


Williams still got a 10-day quarantine from the NBA. The league’s concern was not the food or what goes on in the club, it’s the other people in a confined indoor space who were not following the same safety protocols Williams was supposed to be observing.

Williams will miss at least two of the seeding games for the Clippers but will be ready to go when the playoffs start.
