Beware, media members: If you question Mo Williams’ abilities, he may be listening, and he will be ready to fire back.
ESPN’s Bill Simmons analyzed the Utah Jazz before the Miami Heat-Los Angeles Clippers game aired on ESPN Friday, and one of his comments was that Utah needed a new point guard. Williams, who plays point guard for the Jazz, heard Simmons’ comment and didn’t care for it. He responded via his Twitter account:
What the hell Bill Simmons talking about the jazz need a point guard. What the hell position have I been playing all yr? #smh #espn #cmon

Someone should remind Williams that he has been out since hurting his thumb in a Dec. 22 game against Miami. Should Simmons have factored Williams into the mix when the guy had surgery? Maybe, but it’s not like Simmons’ analysis is off. Utah has been running Jamaal Tinsley and Alec Burks out there. Besides, the reality about Williams is that he is a decent fill-in guy if you need a point guard, but he’s not a long-term solution.
I will say this in Mo’s favor: thanks to Twitter, guys have the ability to respond to critics immediately. Remember in November we saw another athlete similarly respond to a writer?
