Ex-Pacer Williams Locked Up

Some cats can’t catch a break, and it costs them big time. Add Shawne Williams to that list, if you hadn’t already. ESPN has the story: “Troubled former Indiana Pacers forward Shawne Williams has been arrested after police found marijuana and a loaded gun in the car he was driving.Memphis police say Williams and his former University of Memphis teammate Kareem Cooper were pulled over in a Dodge Charger on Friday because Williams wasn’t wearing a seat belt. He was charged with driving on a suspended license. Police then searched the car and say they found more than 17 grams of marijuana and a gun on Cooper. Police said they did not know whether the two men have attorneys. The Pacers chose Williams with their first-round draft pick in 2006, but his NBA career has been marred by numerous off-court issues, arrests and weight problems.”

    What do you mean ‘can’t catch a break?’ Yeah, awful luck the cops found him with a loaded handgun and 17 grams of an illegal drug, all while driving with a suspended license. Poor guy.

    Damn. Kid was LEGIT on the court here at home. CUSA tourney MVP. Straight locked Adam Morrison up in the second half at the Fed Ex Forum. No joke he REALLY had the talent to be a starter in the L. No bias, honestly. With the right guidance and a better head on his shoulders, he could’ve been pretty special.

    yep, watched him during the summerleague like dude up top said. And the one thing Dennis Scott continued to say is ‘if he can get his life together’ and ‘if he can stay out of trouble’… Not like anyone needs me to say it but drugs are bad. Marijuana is just as bad as cocaine or any other drug out there, PERIOD
