One of the most memorable lines from the cult TV show ‘The OC’ was when Anna said to Seth “Confidence Cohen”. Well, if Anna ever bumped into NBA Free-Agent Sean Williams she’d never have to repeat herself. Williams has confidence… probably a little bit too much.
Williams started his career in New Jersey as a part of many laughable Nets teams before jumping around overseas & D-League franchises before returning last season to play with both the Dallas Mavericks & the Boston Celtics. He has a career average of 4.2ppg & 3.4 RPG & hasn’t started a game since the 2007-08 Season.
That’s what made his quote this week all the more noteable:
“I think everybody pretty much knows my basketball talents. …. I can play basketball, man. Whatever you need done out there, I can do it. You know what I’m saying. I’m one of the best athletes in the game. I’m just looking for the right opportunity, right situation, and hopefully, I’ll sprout.”
So Sean Williams, after all those stats & the fact that he vomited after playing 11mins vs the Nuggets last season, it’s great that he still thinks he’s one of the best athletes in the game…
I’m sure LeBron, Westbrook, Griffin & the rest of the freakishly athletic players in the NBA would love to hear his justification…
I’m sure after this quote, Houston are kicking themselves about cutting him last week… Remember what happened last season after they cut Jeremy Lin?
