A HUGE mistake: Mo Williams
July 17, 2007
After posting so many responses to all the Mo Williams articles, I thought I should write one of my own. I just need to get it off my chest. On the Buck’s side of things, they must be overjoyed right now. Imagine how screwed the Bucks would have been without Mo Williams? Now, imagine how much happier Williams would have been if he went to the Miami Heat? I don’t know how long Williams stayed in school for, but man these guys need to stay in longer so they can start making some better decisions. What is extra millions when you’re already making over $5 million a season? At that level, a championship is worth so much more. If he possibly stayed in school a little bit longer, he might have been able to figure that out. Now, some of you might be saying, “Well, obviously his agent guided him through this in order to make the right decision.” But come on guys, do you think an agent really cares what team his player is playing for? Of course not! If his player is putting up huge numbers or impressive number (see our good friend Mo Williams) then all the agent can see is dollar signs. They just want their client to go where the money is. That is there job. A player in Mo’s shoes should be thinking championship. A championship point guard will demand even more money than probably deserved (ie: Tony Parker, etc). Overall, as you might notice, I think this is a HUGE mistake on Mo Williams part, and a huge victory for his agent. Congrats buddy!
