Wow, another episode of "When Keepin It Real Goes Wrong: Athlete Edition." 09 was rough for em, and as much as I hate to say it, black atheltes, and 2010 looks like it's right on track.

I don't know, maybe it's easy for us regular working people to look on the outside and wonder "what was he thinking?!" I shouldn't pass judgement but what was he thinking? He'll stand out as a premier ball player in jail?

Lol I know New Jersey is bad this year, but jeez!!!

Why would he continue on this destructive path,

This isn't Williams' first run-in with police. While playing with the Indiana Pacers in 2007, Williams was arrested on marijuana possession charges. A year later, a Memphis man wanted for murder, was arrested in Indiana after being found in williams SUV.

If you are planning a trip from Memphis to Chicago, and you see sings that say WRONG WAY, why would you keep going in that direction, in this case, God is showing him the WRONG WAY signs, and he might end up in a bad hood if he keep going the WRONG WAY...

wake up brother, you aint the only one that can hoop

I actually went to H.S. with him. The coaches spoiled him; he was never truly disciplined for any poor behavior- they knew he smoked weed, etc.. He's a really good person - just has a really messed up background. He should've used the NBA as a way out.
