Twitter Moaning Gets T-Will in Trouble

by December 09, 2009

One of the great things about Twitter is that it allows players to vent. This is great for fans and casual observers, not necessarily for the players: “Williams, the Nets’ top draft pick out of Louisville, used his Twitter account to voice his displeasure over his shrinking minutes and playing for the Nets in general, posting a message on Monday about what it would have been like had he been drafted by another team instead. ‘How would it be if Mr. Stern called my name 10 min earlier,’ tweeted Williams, who was chosen at No. 11 in June’s draft. “#9 or 5 min later #12 hmmmmmmmmm to bad I can’t live off what ifs.’ Toronto had the No. 9 pick in the draft and Charlotte had No. 12. In a different message, Williams wrote, ‘Up early to the gym before practice to practice before practice, because NOW practice is my games.’ Against the Knicks on Sunday, Williams played just 9:24, his least amount of time this season. It was also his only scoreless game so far, as he finished 0-for-5. Williams did not play last night.”
