Jason Williams, not Jayson Williams. I'm not the biggest basketball fan, especially college hoops; but I knew who he was coming out of Duke and being drafted 2nd overall, behind Yao Ming, by the Chicago Bulls. Then, of course, I heard about his career-ending motorcycle accident after his rookie season and all the hew and cry about how stupid he was. But to be honest, I had no idea who Jay Williams was as a person and had no idea what happened to him after his accident, whether he ever played again or even walked.
I was channel flipping this afternoon and just happened to catch this interview with him on "Dan Le Batard Is Highly Questionable." You can tell he sincerely does not feel sorry for himself and listen to him explain why he wouldn't change anything.
One of the best interviews I've seen in quite some time. Don't you wish, as I do, that people like him are still playing and those who don't appreciate their gifts are the ones who had the motorcycle accident?
