NY Times on former NBA #2 pick and Austin Toro, Jay Williams

Excellet read about how a motorcycle ended a very promising NBA career and what happened next...

NYT: A Leg Rebuilt, a Life Renewed

He even joined the Austin Toros in the Development League, where his coach, Dennis Johnson, promised to get Williams back into the N.B.A. Then Williams tore his hamstring and ended up back in the hospital. While he was recovering, Johnson died of a heart attack.

"Dude, I'm done," Williams said of his mind-set then. "I'm chasing a ghost. It's over."

More depression. More drinking. More resentment. More self-loathing. All part of the search for what came next...
