Do My (Red) Eyes Deceive Me?
Sunday evening, I had the distinct displeasure of being on a red eye flight from Salt Lake City to New York.
In addition to myself, there was another noteworthy person on the midnight flight out of Salt Lake: former NBA point guard Jay Williams.
It's particularly interesting timing for an out-of-work former first round draft pick to be flying to NYC considering that yesterday, Knicks point guard Stephon Marbury sat out the team's win over Detroit, and now word is that Stephon might be out for the rest of the year with ankle surgery.
Was Williams flying to NY because got a call to work out for the Knicks? Or, alternatively, does he board a flight immediately every time he sees an NBA point guard sitting out a game so that he may offer his services to the team potentially in need?
Probably not -- Williams is from New Jersey originally and may have just been taking a trip home. But you have to admit, the timing is interesting.
My guess is that even if he was coming to work out for New York, Isiah will likely lose interest very quickly once he learns that Williams in fact does not still have a grotesque amount of money left on his original NBA deal.
