NYT story on Jay Williams


This is a LONG story, but damn. How one person could overcome as much as he did should be an inspiration to anyone.

Always gonna think about what might have been for the Bulls and Williams if this hadn't happened...

For some reason I thought this was about the one that shot his butler

quote:

In his rookie season, Williams played against Jordan, who was then with the Washington Wizards. Jordan went at Williams on several consecutive possessions. Each time, Jordan told Williams how he would score - first over the left shoulder, then fake over the left shoulder and shoot over the right, and so forth - and each time, Jordan scored exactly as he said he would.


GOAT.

quote:

The leg resembled a map of Williams’s lost years: remnants of 10-plus operations; marks from the 100 staples; a scar that ran from pelvis to ankle; smaller divots from the numerous knee scopes. Williams sustained a total knee dislocation in the accident. He tore every ligament. He dislocated his pelvis. He ripped through a nerve in his left foot that took a year to regenerate, the pain comparable to that of childbirth, so severe it would wake Williams in the middle of the night. He severed an artery. He tore the hamstring from the bone.


Damn

re: NYT story on Jay Williams


A few years back, we went on a college visit to Duke. I was standing in the bookstore when a guy seemed to be gathering some attention. There was a TV there showing a previous NCAA championship game game. I stood beside this guy and he started talking to me. He was doing a running commentary and telling me how bad he played that game. I then realized it was Jay Williams. It was very surreal experience. He seems like a very down to earth, regular guy.

He avg 9.5ppg and 4.7 ast . So he almost avg 10 and 5 as a rookie. Not to mention, Bill Cartwright was his coach and he ran the Triangle offense. The triangle didn't benefit Jay's skill set. He was a much better open court player.
