Jayson Williams Coming Back to NBA?
Update of 9/04 post : He's playing his first CBA game tonight. Wonderful.
According to this report, Jayson Williams has been training and may make a comeback to the NBA. Last we heard of Williams he narrowly escaped some serious jail time for shooting and killing his limo driver with a shotgun while drunk. You may recall that among the evidence that was not heard during Williams' trial was this:
“Prosecutors say the second incident occurred at Williams' mansion just six months before Christofi's shooting. Williams allegedly bet houseguest and former pro basketball player Dwayne Schintzius $100 that he could not drag Williams' Rottweiler guard dog from the house. Schintzius pulled the dog outdoors, but instead of paying up, prosecutors claim, Williams shot the dog twice, killing and "almost decapitating" it, and then pointed the gun at his friend, telling him "get this f---ing dog off my porch or you're next."Sounds like a helluva guy this Williams. Glad to see him getting a second chance. Somehow I think neither the dog nor the limo driver feel the same.
