Terrence Williams spent 3 years in the NBA with 3 different teams and struggled to stay out of trouble. After being cut by the Detroit Pistons during training camp, the once sought after Louisville forward had to go to China to play basketball. Williams averaged 17.9 PPG in China and rekindled his career to the point where the Boston Celtics decided to give him a chance, signing him to a 10 day deal.
Williams has talent and no one around the league doubts that, it is just that his attitude problems haven’t left his side. During his rookie season in the NBA, Williams played well and showed signs of being a productive NBA player. But his time ran out in New Jersey after he constantly clashed with the coaching staff and never showed up for team activities on time. During that season Williams was even sent down to the D-Leauge as punishment for his actions.
Williams got a chance in both Houston and Sacramento too but was never signed for the next season. All Louisville fans know how good Williams can be but it all depends on whether he can keep his head on straight at this level. All we can do is pray that the stint in China gave Williams a reality check and it resurrected his career.
If you want something cool to do on Wednesday night, T-Will and the Boston Celtics will take on Earl Clark and the Los Angeles Lakers on TNT at 10:30 P.M. EST.

I've been staying away from all the trade rumors because most of them are just that - rumors - and for the most part won't ever be more than that. If a trade happens, it happens. But I refuse to go in circles with all the leaks, sources, opinions, and frivolity that is going around. It seems every time I turn around there is another "source" saying that Paul...
It was late in the fourth quarter Wednesday night during the Charlotte Bobcats and Detroit Pistons game, that rookie Michael Kidd-Gilchrist posterizes Greg Monroe. Lucky for the Pistons, and Monroe’s dignity, they pulled out the win over Charlotte; 105-99. The post Michael Kidd-Gilchrist’s Dunk on Greg Monroe (Video) appeared first on The NBA Mistress.
The Pistons' package for Kobe Bryant included a combination of their core players and draft picks, according to sources.
Back in 2007 there were rumblings that the Detroit Pistons and Los Angeles Lakers had discussed a trade involving Kobe Bryant. Turns out, that deal was much closer to becoming a reality than just about anyone realized at the time.
Yahoo’s Adrian Wojnarowski revisited those potentially game-changing trade talks in a piece up Monday, following the passing away of Lakers owner Jerry...

The Piston’s rookie says that he was planning to enter the Dunk contest before a stress fracture in his lower back ended that dream. Hopefully after a full recovery, expect Drummond to be out there next year trying to dethrone the new slam dunk champion.

By losing Rajon Rondo, Leandro Barbosa and Jared Sullinger the for the rest of the season, the Boston Celtics are now looking for players. Head coach Doc Rivers said last week that they were monitoring China’s league and it looks like they have found someone, at least for now.

At 22-34, this season hasn’t been kind to the Pistons. But when you travel to Charlotte, you expect things to look fine and dandy as the Bobcats are a horrific 13-41. And while the Pistons came away with a 105-99 win, it didn’t come easy – especially for Pistons big man Greg Monroe. Monroe took some punishment from Bobcats’ rookie Michael Kidd-Gilchrist.
Will Bynum has averaged 10.6 points in seven games since Jose Calderon joined the lineup.
The Celtics marched into Laker-land with dead feet and tired minds. You could see from the get go that the momentum they had built prior to the all-star break was drying up faster than Kevin Garnett's resolve.
We could argue and beat a dead horse about the lack of point guard play, but no one hardly speaks about the elephant in the room. The very real need for a rugged big...
The Pistons already made a major move in January.
Late in the 4th quarter of the Charlotte Bobcats-Detroit Pistons game, rookie Michael Kidd-Gilchrist absolutely posterized Greg Monroe. The Pistons ended up winning the game 105-99, but unfortunately for Monroe, this dunk is destined for the SportsCenter Top 10.
