Lou Williams thinks fan sentiment around the 2020 NBA restart caused the Clippers to stop chasing a title in the Orlando bubble.
The Clippers will always look back at the 2019-20 season as the biggest missed opportunity of their franchise history.
They had the best chance of winning a title this year and choked with a blown 3-1 series to the Nuggets.
Various stars from that team have previously dismissed the legitimacy of the bubble,
but Lou Williams seemed to express regret about the team not taking the bubble seriously as it was their best chance to win a title.
It was a struggle to get us to the bubble from the beginning. We didn't even want to go. So mentally, we came into it without the right mindset to finish the job.
We didn't even want to be there. I was in the bubble;e for 987 days and I think of Day 67 as, 'Let's get the f**k out of here'
Mentally, we weren't in it for the long game. We didn't see the pot of gold at the end of it.
