“I mean, I apologize to that kid, because I was once one of those kids,” he said. “I remember once when the Seattle Sonics played the Sacramento Kings, and I went to see Jason Williams. He couldn’t play because he had a migraine.” The experience stuck well enough that when Thomas was drafted by Sacramento, he just had to know. “Once I got drafted to the Kings, I asked the trainer — and he said yes, he really had migraines and he couldn’t play when he had it,” he said. “So I understand that. But what I was telling him was, just tell your kid why I’m not there. Don’t act like I’m not showing up because I’m resting. That’s what made me upset.”
Despite his highlight-reel play, the 41 year old was always considered a coach on the court, which is what prompted Kevin Garnett to ask Williams about possible teaching ambitions. Williams batted this line of questioning away for a simple reason: He enjoys golf too much. “I’m too irresponsible to be the head guy,” Williams said. “Like, if I have to be there at 3 o’clock tomorrow and someone asks me to go play golf at Augusta, I gotta go to Augusta.”
