There has been no shortage of stories on Williams’ transformation from first-round character problem to the Knicks’ 3-point marksman, but that’s because he continues to impress everyone who thought they knew him. Where once he may have been considered too immature for the NBA, now the 25-year-old is making the savvy decisions of a veteran.
I love these articles. This is about Knicks forward Shawne Williams, and what he’s doing during the lockout. I love the guy mainly because I appreciate dvdes that turn their life around.
Consider Crawford, for example, who is averaging 24 points a game in the playoffs for the Atlanta Hawks who are on the verge of knocking out the Dwight Howard and the Orlando Magic.
Or Randolph, who is averaging 18 and 8 rebounds a game for the upstart Memphis Grizzlies, who just out-quicked and out-fought the San Antonio Spurs last night to take a 3-1 series lead, setting the stage for one of the biggest playoff upsets in NBA history.
Or Ariza of the New Orleans Hornets who is scoring 15 ppg and grabbing 8 rebounds a game in the playoffs, and helping Chris Paul to sweat the Lakers. That series, surprisingly, is knotted at 2-2.
Or Gallinari and Felton, who are scoring a combined 24 ppg for the Denver Nuggets as they try to overcome the Oklahoma City Thunder. They, along with fellow ex-Knicks Wilson Chandler and Harrington, were instrumental in helping the Nuggets win 50 games this year. The Knicks only won 42 games.
Or Camby, who is pulling down 10 rebounds a game for the Portland Trail Blazers, which have pushed the Dallas Mavericks to a sixth game in their series.
ARE WE ENTIRELY SURE ISIAH ISN’T PULLING THE STRINGS AGAIN!?
You see, life consists of giving yourself these problems that can be dealt with, so you don’t have to face the problems that can’t be dealt with. It’s very meaningful to me, for instance, to see if the Knicks are going to get over some problem or another. These are matters you can get involved with, safely, and pleasurably, and the outcome doesn’t hurt you.
“I really didn’t think it should have been a call, but I’m not the official. When you have two players of that caliber going at it, I think you should let ‘em play. But I don’t make the rules, I don’t make the calls.”—
