Lou Williams is Part Cherokee 

Post#1 » by DG88 » Tue Nov 11, 2014 12:57 am

At the 1:20 mark Chuck Hayes asks whether he got his hair from? Lou says that he got it from his moms side. His grandfather was a Cherokee Indian. The more you know. May sadden our Somali bredrin, but who knows may be his dad is part Somalian.

Lou is a playa at heart.

You da real MVP, Lou.

Why y'all acting like a guy with native heritage can't be the captain. I'm sure those natives used their share of canoes back in the day.

First of all, it's Somali not Somalian lol.

Lou is Somali through and through. Part Dixon, part Muqdisho and part Atl.

And yes, Somalia is situated in the horn of Africa

There's an East African community in Atlanta with Ethiopians, Eritreans, and Somalis, so there's still that chance.

With that being said, Lou is still the captain now...and forever....
