Grant Williams trolls Vanderbilt with Father’s Day tweet

New, comment

Hilarious.

NCAA Basketball: Vanderbilt at Tennessee Randy Sartin-USA TODAY Sports

Social media can be a tough place to hang around these days, but former Tennessee basketball star Grant Williams gave us all a laugh on Sunday afternoon.

Williams sent out a message, wishing all the dads in the world a happy Father’s Day. He completed the tweet with a photoshopped picture of him holding a child with a Vanderbilt logo on his head.

As hilarious as the tweet was, Grant isn’t even all that wrong. In 2019, Williams dropped a career high 43 points against the Commodores. The year before that? Williams scored 37 points. Arguably the two best games of his career came against Tennessee’s mid-state rival.

Tennessee has now won six in a row over Vanderbilt as the two programs have veered in opposite directions. Williams was a massive part of the Volunteers’ rise under Rick Barnes, transforming himself from a three-star, undersized prospect to a first round NBA draft pick.

His NBA rookie season could be set to resume this summer, but Williams took a break from those preparations to come back and troll Vandy. You have to respect that.
