Found February 19, 2013 on StraitPinkie.com:
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.

Random Trade Deadline Thoughts and More on Terrence Williams

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...

Celtics looking for second wind

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...
