History doesn’t say whether Lou Williams will break the record on February 17 to celebrate Michael Jordan’s 59th birthday, but let’s assume it has nothing to do with it. Because tonight was a very special record broken by the Eagle Sniper, a record that looked like him, a record that perfectly symbolized his career.
It’s official now that no player has started as many off the bench as Lou Williams. no way. throughout the story. The league’s best sixth man with the Raptors in 2015 and then the best sixth man with the Clippers in 2018 and 2019, Lowell is arguably one of the best bench players in major league history. Kevin McHale, Manu’s bench Ginobili or other Jamal Crawford, his milestone of the night is by any means yet another document for this unofficial status candidacy. Steve Kerr or Jamal Crawford just happened to be overtaken for a while, and this night, the man who directly caused the 2010s 3-pointer to explode – Dale Curry – thus saw Sweet Lou with Left vocal cord storm.
The history of Louis Williams!

Maybe it’s a detail for you, but it means a lot to us, so Loulou is officially at the top of the genre’s rankings anyway. Averaged 7 points per game this season, the weight of 35 years is still felt, but the threshold of 1,000 games will soon pass, and the No. 1 position will not move. It’s not a Hall of Fame, but Loulou deserves his initials on nearly every bench in the league.
