T-Will Sends LeBron James Into the Stands...Literally


Former Louisville star Terrence Williams was matched up one-on-one in a run out with the Heat's LeBron James in yesterday's game.

Rather than give up a poster dunk, T-Will sent James into the court side seats.

Williams later said that the foul was no accident.

Here is an excerpt from NYDailyNews.com:

Then, after the game, Williams said the foul was a message - both to the Heat and his own team - for all the circus-like dunks and showboating from Miami’s superstar duo.

Read below for all the lovely back-and-forths (from separate rooms in separate interviews, of course, and edited in no chronological order):

T-Will: “At the end of the day I’m a New Jersey Nets basketball player and you have to put your foot down somehow in a basketball game. It’s nothing against LeBron, but at the end of the day I’m a basketball player. Falling in the stands is a little much. It wasn’t me trying hurt nobody. I’m trying to play basketball and make a basketball play.”

LeBron: “It didn’t send much of a message because we went on an 8-0 run after hit. Do we play New Jersey again? Just once. I’ll be ready for it.”

TWill: “I would say somebody doesn’t want to do something and you ask somebody to do it. But nobody wants to raise their hand. So I guess I raised my hand first. But whatever, I got a flagrant for it, which was a little too much.”
