Robber Changes Mind After He Realizes He’s Robbing an NBA Player

Sixers coach Doug Collins gave the team off on Christmas Eve so his players could enjoy the holiday as they were scheduled to fly to Portland on Christmas Day and practice there later that night. It was on the team’s off day that guard Lou Williams found himself in a little bit of a mess.

While stopped in his car in Manayunk on Christmas Eve, Williams was approached by a man with a gun. The situation was deflated when the gunman recognized Williams and commended him for his work in the community. Williams said he treated the man to a meal at a local fast-food restaurant by giving him some money.

“A guy tried to rob me but decided not to because of whatever I do in the community,” said Williams before the game last night. “He’s a Lou Williams fan so he didn’t rob me.”

Williams said he was driving in his car when the man approached, knocked on the driver’s window and had a gun drawn.

“There’s crime everywhere,” said Williams. “I was debating whether to pull off or 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.”
