Jay Williams- Pretty Cool Jersey Guy

Jay Williams, former #2 overall pick in the NBA draft has been invited to Nets training camp. Williams, who has been out of ball for three years after a viscous motorcycle accident, is a Plainfield, NJ native. In addition to having shown exceptional promise as a player, Williams seems like a pretty cool guy. My buddy Hendrix and I saw him out in the spring at Calico Jack's- a not so classy bar in NYC. He seemed to just be hanging out like a normal guy, not thinking he was hot sh*t or anything. There was no posse picking up girls for him or table with bottles of Grey Goose on it, just a guy having a beer with some of his friends (a guy who did get paid a lot- including a $3 million buy out of his contract). He seemed a little annoyed when the DJ kept shouting out stuff like "we got my boy Jay-Will in the house!", really not looking for any attention at all. So come to the Nets Jay Williams, and keep on keepin' it real.

Comments:
He can have all the beer he wants, just keep him off the freaking bike.
Please. I love the idea of a classic redemption story, or yet another Leon Smith not-ready-for-human-contact story, especially so close to home, though.
