Philadelphia 76ers point guard Lou Williams found himself in a sticky situation Christmas eve but the gift of gab & McDonalds will get you out jam. Check out this Christmas Blessing from ESPN.
Williams told the Philadelphia Daily News that he was stopped in his car in the Philadelphia neighborhood of Manayunk on Christmas Eve when he was approached by a man wielding a gun.
But Williams, who has developed into a key reserve for the Sixers, said he managed to talk down the gunman — and then treated his would-be assailant to McDonald’s.
“A guy tried to rob me but decided not to because of whatever I do in the community,” the 25-year-old Williams told the Daily News. “He’s a Lou Williams fan, so he didn’t rob me.”
Williams told the paper that he was driving his car when the man began to approach with a gun drawn and then knocked on the driver’s window.
“There’s crime everywhere,” Williams told the Daily News. “I was debating whether to pull off to help the guy. The gun was already out. He did all the talking, and we came up with a solution before I could really say much. I treated him to McDonald’s.”
Philadelphia opened the regular season in Portland on Monday night.
Mickey D’s needs to make a phone call to the former McDonalds All American for this. A convo over a Big Mac makes any robber smile. Williams also raps. Maybe he can rock a commercial. Lou, get your agent on the phone! He got work to do!
