Default Williams finds peace outside NBA, no comeback

Quote:
"He told me I should just go for it," Williams said about another comeback attempt. "My health is great and I'm an active body. But I've lost the passion to play competitively."

It's hard to call that accident a waste I mean that could happen to any team. **** like that you can't predict. Not sayin he'd surely be a superstar or nothin but he had a chance to be a solid starter

But there are many safer ways to commute other than motorcycle. You can't predict accidents but you can prevent them.

But yeah, sh!t happens. He still has a big heart, big enough to try to come back many times though.

No, Jay Williams, the second overall pick in the draft a few years back, had a clause that the Bulls wrote into his contract that he is not to ride motorcycles. What does he do? Rides one into a pole.

That is 100% truth but it's pretty standard in most sports (the stipulation that you are not supposed to ride motorcycles while under contract) it wasn't just a special clause for him.
