It’s official that Mo Williams will be staying with the Milwaukee Bucks for the next 6 years! Now, if you read my blog before, you might have noticed how I thought it was a mistake for Mo Williams to stay with the Bucks (check it here). After pondering the whole situation for a while, I realized theres more to the whole situation. In Miami, he would have teamed with Shaq and DWade, but the Heat are still short in talent as a team, and they really are affected by the injury bug on a regular basis. I did say that they would be championship material with Mo Williams, and I will stand by my word. I truly do believe it. Why I have a slight change of heart comes down to one thing, LOYALTY. The Bucks are starting to build up their team a bit (just acquired Desmond Mason too), and by Mo Williams staying loyal to the Bucks, it will attract other talent, such as Mason. Loyalty also comes with a big fat cheque. For six years worth of service, Williams will receive $51.5 million. The question is, are the Bucks going to make it to the Heat’s level within those 6 years? Well, not this year. If they can acquire some more power up front, or if those front guys, like big Charlie V, start to develop, than ya, these guys will be contenders. Moral of the story: Loyalty pays…a lot!
