Who wears short shorts? LSU’s Emmitt Williams wears short shorts. The LSU freshman has become an internet sensation in recent weeks for his rolled up shorts, which will make their Rupp Arena debut tomorrow night.
Short shorts are a trend in college basketball this season, but no one hitches them up higher than Williams, a 6’7″ freshman who averages 7.8 points and 5.8 rebounds per game. They make Brad Calipari’s tucked in shorts look like capris:
Why does Williams wear them like that? To show off a new tattoo of his favorite Nickelodeon cartoon characters and rapper Kodak Black.
Also, he thinks he has nice legs:

The SEC Network even did a feature on Williams’ shorts, which included Dane Bradshaw showing off his thighs, a sight I’m not sure I can ever unsee:

Short shorts aren’t Williams’ only move. He also has started doing this dance in recent games:

There will be none of that tomorrow night.
