Lou Williams Claps Back at Kendrick Perkins, Doing Him a Huge Favor

Videos by OutKick

Kendrick Perkins, in his time on television, is proving very adept at getting people to talk about his time on television. The latest installment was when he admonished Lou Williams for going to a strip club to pick up dinner while excused from the NBA bubble for a funeral, eliciting a response from the Clippers’ bench spark.

Tweeting about the segment, Perkins said that it’s “disturbing” how Zion Williamson is more mature than Williams, an NBA veteran who is 33 years old, and Williams clapped back:

Whether Williams knows this or not, by amplifying Perkins’ commentary he is further ensuring not just that Perkins will continue to take loud shots on television, but that he’ll get more and more airtime with which to do so. Perkins inspires a type of reaction that in the industry is seen as a sign of relevance — a bunch of people in media have taken shots at Williams, but Perkins is the one he’s responding to.

  1. No NBA will die from virus. But if it spreads in bubble and shuts it down, every liberal out there will put even more pressure on college football, NFL, and every other corporation to keep them closed. Gotta show we can walk before we run for them to let us go back to normal

  2. Ryan — Ask your Outkick colleagues to interview:
    Thomas Sowell — economist
    Glenn Lowery — sociologist/economist
    John McWhorter — linguist
    You can find them on YouTube. All three are brilliant African-Americans with deep knowledge of
    history and have commented on the myth of systemic racism.
    Sowell: “If racism in American isn’t dead, it’s on life support.”
