Jay Williams was once one of the most promising prospects to ever enter the NBA. Selected No 2 overall by the Bulls back in 2002, Williams’ career was cut short by a motorcycle accident after his rookie season. But he was around long enough to see some crazy stuff as a member of the Bulls. Recently, he shared some of those stories on the Brilliant Idiots podcast with Andrew Schulz and Charlamagne Tha God.
One of the most shocking revelations was that he witnessed NBA players betting $20,000 on games like rock, paper, scissors. “Rock, paper, scissors—bet 20 grand. All day long,” Williams says in the video above, in addition to talking about dice games and witnessing teammates gambling with Michael Jordan.
Williams, now an ESPN analyst, shed the normal constraints of his day job for the podcast, speaking freely about everything from the NBA nightlife to partying with girls at Duke and UNC. You can listen to it in full below:
