Sports News Without Access, Favor, Or Discretion

That's the story Williams told reporters in the locker room prior to tonight's season opener against the Trail Blazers in Portland, anyway. According to the Philadelphia Daily News, Williams said a man approached him as his car was stopped on a Philly street on Christmas Eve, knocked on the car's window, and brandished a gun. The man then recognized Williams.

"A guy tried to rob me but decided not to because of whatever I do in the community," said Williams. "He's a Lou Williams fan, so he didn't rob me."


Williams said he didn't have to say much before the two "came up with a solution":

"I treated him to McDonald's."
