LA Clippers’ guard Paul George has called his teammate Lou Williams as ‘Hall of Fame player’ on Wednesday. In an interview on the Knuckleheads podcast of Quentin Richardson and Darius Miles, the six-time NBA All-Star player referred Lou Williams as Fame-caliber.
George joined LA Clippers in 2019 when Oklahoma City Thunder signed Shai Gilgeous Alexander and Danilo Gallinari in his exchange with the Clippers. George said that he is lucky to be playing around multiple Hall of Famers including Williams.
“It’s been great, I feel like everything aligned at the right time. Year 10 for me, I’m playing with a Hall of Fame coach, I’m playing with a Hall of Fame player — multiple of them, man you could have a case for Lou [Williams] being a Hall of Fame player, too, with his career. I just feel like everything lined up, I’m back at home, it’s easy on my mom, my parents, I just feel like everything was positioned where it was supposed to be for year 10 for me.”
George cited the crucial role Williams plays coming off the bench during the matches as the three-time Sixth Man of the Year in his career if 15 years, spanning for six different franchises. Williams has taken up the frontline guard in the absence of injury-hit George in 2019-20 season.
Williams joined the league in 2005 when he was roped in by the Philadelphia 76ers, and joined LA Clippers via trade in the offseason before the 2017-18 campaign. Williams is considered the veteran who contributes off the bench for the Clippers this season.
The 33-year-old shooting guard is currently averaging 18.7 points, 3.1 rebounds and 5.1 assists this season. Los Angeles Clippers are one of the contenders to lift this year’s title due to the presence of inform biggies like Kawhi Leonard, Lou Williams, Paul George and Montrezl Harrell.
