Former NBA guard Louis Tyrone Williams voiced his disagreement with football players who criticize NBA players as ‘soft’, arguing that both sports have their challenges.

He emphasized that skills like catching the ball, speed, and reading defenses are valuable in football, but shooting a jump shot in basketball is equally difficult, if not more so.

“There are p*ssies on both sides… Catching the ball is a skill. Being fast as f*ck, that is a skill. Being able to read defenses and trump their matchup, that is a skill. Shooting a jump shot is way harder than all of that sh*t, man,” Williams said.
