Default Re: Williams finds peace outside NBA, no comeback

Glad to see he's come to grips with the fact he will not be a NBA player.

I never realised it was standard. My mistake.

If you watch football you should be familiar with the Ben rothlisberger situation. It's not only NBA, but all professional sports don't allow it.. it costs them Money when players gets injured . Just like Jay williams, they lost a draft pick to get him and now he can't play..

Cause players get injured from them all the time. Kellen Winslow missed a whole year from this, Big Ben R, jay williams, alot more people.

Nope, I don't watch football..

Not that this is thread-related, but IMHO I think that's a dumb rule. Ok, maybe not for peaceful ol Jay Will, but in general, I can think of several more ways that can get a professional athlete injured, rather than going on motorcycles.
