Sixers’ Lou Williams Says Robber Spared Him Because of His Community Work
You know you’re a good person when a robber gives you a break. Normally we think of thieves as people who have no sympathy. If someone is going to physically assault you and take your belongings, they probably don’t have much to lose. If a person is going to rob someone in the street you would expect they’re looking to just get it done quickly before anyone sees them. Apparently the man who approached Sixers forward Lou Williams on Saturday took the time to give his victim a once over.
We already knew Williams was a good sport based on the interview we had with him a few months back, but apparently he has had an effect on some people. It’s one thing to be given an award or receive some sort of recognition by the NBA for your work in the community. It’s another for someone to refrain from taking your money because you’re a good guy. Three cheers for the holiday spirit.
UPDATE: Williams gave more details about the incident.
