He enjoyed a promising start as a New Jersey Net, but his seeming ambivalence and plateaued skill set have done him in during the years since his 2007 NBA debut.

Dallas forward Sean Williams was playing so hard, leaving everything he had on the court — that he left more on the Dallas bench when he was subbed out in the fourth quarter. The second-year player vomited on the Mavericks' bench, which got the fans to their feet in appreciation that at least one of their players was actually playing all-out. "He was playing so hard, he threw up," Mavs coach Rick Carlisle said. "That tells you that he was going at it the way you need to." Denver Post

With a checkered past, the New Jersey Nets' 2007 first-round pick is out to prove he is not the misfit whose immature and illegal behavior overshadowed his talent. After a year spent trying to restore his image with the D-League's Texas Legends, (Sean) Williams received his first NBA evaluations since the Nets waived him last year with workouts for Memphis and Phoenix this week. "There are a lot of misperceptions about who I am because a lot of people don't know me," Williams, 24, said. "If you just read reports about some of my past, you might think I'm a horrible person. I'm trying to see people face to face and show them me. Everybody's trying to get to know me, see who I am and pick Sean Williams' brain. "Everybody knows I can play basketball. I've gotten this far through all the trouble I've been through in my life. It's just being the best person I can possibly be on and off the court. That's what is going to help me be a professional in this league." Arizona Republic
