Default Jay Williams: "There were guys smoking weed before games."

The New York Times recently did a wonderful profile on former Bulls guard and current ESPN college basketball analyst Jay Williams.

In it Williams talked about his struggles to reclaim his life after a horrifying motorcycle accident, and all the highs and lows he went through.

Williams also talked about life in the NBA, and some of the perils he faced as a pro. *Per the Big Lead, Williams indicated that some of his Bulls teammates would smoke weed before games 2002-2003, which was his rookie season.

“I didn’t know how to handle it at first,” Williams said. “I didn’t know how to be around it. Guys were on the bench, trying to kick it to girls in the stands, having ball boys run over. I mean, some guys were high.”

Asked to clarify, Williams said: “There were guys smoking weed before games. Guys asking in the middle of the game, ‘Do you smell popcorn?’*”

He noticed the nervous laughter around the kitchen table. “You think I’m playing,” Williams said. “Can you imagine! Guys are gambling. They’re playing dice in the back of the plane for money. Like, we just lost by 30 tonight! And we’ve got a game tomorrow! It bugged me out.”

Nothing Williams said was surprising, just hilarious how guys on bad teams in pro sports could care less when they are getting paid.

I know it's of no surprise, but still interesting to know someone who lived the life would admit that.

Some people are a walking living breathing stereotype.

The nba player who smokes bud before games, drinks & gambles on the team plane after a loss, and have a game the next day are exactly that, a walking steroetype.

I love the reefer but if I was paying some dude millions of dollars to do a job and this motherffuccker was getting high before playing games, and not caring to the point where they are parting immediately after a loss.. I'd call them out publicly and fire their asss

Those people are losers in life. You are given such a blessing in being in the NBA and your doing that immature bullshit. What a waste of space.

You wanna get high that's cool but you don't gotta do it right before a game. Do it after, or way earlier that day so you're mello but not stoned on the bench. Though to be fair I get why the dudes who never get to play do it.

couple of my buddies would play high school and college ball after smoking. Centers some people i never understood it though haha. Its quite immature especially when the fans and owners are so reliant on these players to flourish. Its a shame but a fact of life, people wanna enjoy themselves how ever they please but they need some priorities in life. Toke up after the game for all i care, just not during when people are putting money into you to live this life.

I would agree but how can you ignore a player with that name (above in big font) not being a smoker?

Jay Williams is a punk ass snitch. Hate that dude.

And who gives a shit if they smoke weed before the games? Big deal.
