NBA veteran guard, Lou Williams, has been announced as the 2018 NBA 6th Man of the Year. This will be the second time Williams will have received this award, being named previously with the Toronto Raptors in 2015. Williams had a stellar 2017/18 season reaching career high stats of 22.6 PPG, 5.3 APG and 2.5 RPG, while averaging 24.4 minutes.
Williams has been a secret weapon for many teams in his 13-year career, showcasing the skill set any true NBA team would adore in a 6th man. After being named Western Conference Player of the Week twice and being the highest scoring NBA player in the month of December, Williams had a strong fight in the 2018 NBA All Star run, which is almost unheard of for a bench player.
Williams single handedly kept an injury-stricken Clippers team alive and in the playoff run. After scoring his career-high of 50-points at the age of 31 against the reigning NBA Champions,Golden State Warriors, Williams was proven to be one of the top scoring athletes in the league.
“I’m grateful to hold this title for a second time in my NBA career. I’ve always stayed true to being considered the ‘Underdog’ that my teammates can turn to for efficient scoring off the bench. It’s a great feeling to be recognized for my hard work and dedication to my role and the game.” Williams states, “I also want to congratulate Eric Gordon and Fred VanVleet as well for their great performance this past season. Thank you NBA and KIA.” Williams continues to grow and improve in his years in the NBA, proving he is still a major force to face in professional basketball.
Lou Williams has taken his talents to the recording booth, releasing his debut project – T.A.T.N.W. (The Album That Never Was) today exclusively with global music and entertainment platform, TIDAL. Released under the stage name, Lou Will, this 13-track album steps into the life of the rapper/NBA player, with tracks produced by Honorable C-Note, Jahlil Beats, J Reid, J Rod, Fonzie and Lil C; as well as features including Jadakiss, Quez of Travis Porter, Mitchelle’l and new songstresses Imani Falana and Talea. The Album That Never Was was created surrounding an on-going joke amongst friends regarding Lou constantly putting hours into the studio making great music and never releasing it. His leading single At Ease, premiering with XXL today, features arguably one of the best hip-hop artists alive, Jadakiss, really shows Lou Will’s lyrical and story-telling capabilities. This album is sure to prove Lou’s true raw talent and is set to wow every listener.
Lou Will also teamed up with TIDAL to exclusively release a behind-the-scenes video entitled, “Piece of Mind: T.A.T.N.W. Edition” that dives into the making of the artist’s debut project.
