Lou Williams reached for the oldest stereotype in the book when criticizing "nerds" in sports media.
The NBA guard, who was sent from the Houston Rockets to the Los Angeles Clippers in the Chris Paul trade, condemned those with the gall to meticulously study and analyze the games they passionately follow.
It's unclear what sparked Williams' comment. Perhaps someone criticized his meager 46.4 effective field-goal percentage or minus-0.1 value over replacement player from 2016-17, which this nerd looked up on Basketball-Reference.com.
Williams—who obviously has never offered his opinion on a meal he didn't cook or a movie he didn't direct—had some fun with commentators, including some so-called nerds who took his tweet in jest.
He also clarified his stance and said his statement doesn't apply to everyone in sports media who didn't first play professionally.
