With all the uproar about All-Star snubs leading up to All-Star weekend, it’s understandable why Clippers shooting guard Lou Williams may be a little peeved.
Williams is in the middle of the best season of his career at the age of 31, averaging a career-high 23.2 points and 5.3 assists a game for the Los Angeles Clippers, and due to his impressive — and quite frankly bizarre — season, Williams was in contention to be voted into the All-Star game for the first time in his career.
Unfortunately for Williams however, the shooting guard was one of the many snubs out in the Western Conference, losing out to guards such as Damian Lillard and Paul George, even after the injuries suffered to LeBron’s original team.
So when Western Conference guard Jimmy Butler proceeded to play zero minutes in the All-Star game last night, citing rest as the reason — Jimmy, we all know you were hungover from the previous night, don’t worry — Lou Williams wasn’t a happy camper.
@JimmyButler u serious bruh? Lol

Obviously Williams’ tweet was in good fun, considering Butler hasn’t been active on Twitter since 2016.
Any anyway, Butler didn’t seem to mind one bit that he didn’t play a single minute in the All-Star game, as coach Thibs in Minnesota has been playing Butler so much he’s leading the league in minutes with 37.3 a night, so the rest was well deserved.
