44 Year Old Jayson Williams, Just Released From Jail Wants Back in the NBA
I want a lot of things in life doesn’t mean I am going to get them.
Williams should just concentrate on keeping whatever millions he has left in the bank and making sure he never goes back to prison.
To be honest considering all that happened he is lucky that he only did two years, it could have been a lot worse.
The news of Williams’ release from Rikers Island, where he spent the last eight months on a drunken driving charge, put a smile on Paul Silas’ face. The Charlotte coach became close friends with Williams when the two were with the Nets in the mid-’90s. “I talked to Jayson about two months ago and he told me he wanted to get back in the league — as a player,” Silas said Friday night in Miami. “We’ve talked a few times since he’s been in prison. The last time we talked, he said, ‘Paul, I’m in the best shape I’ve ever been in.’ But I don’t see him playing again, not at this stage of his life.”
Williams turned 44 in February.
