Listen to Jayson Williams' crazy stories about NBA life in the 90s.
Former Nets All-Star, Jayson Williams, appeared on a Vice Sports podcast this week and he had plenty to talk about, including stories about Manute Bol, Michael Jordan, Charles Barkley and Larry Bird.
The wild tales he told about NBA life in the 90s fill the hour long podcast, which you can listen to at the bottom of this post, but first allow me to highlight some of what's in store for you:
- Williams claims Manute Bol never played a game where he wasn't completely drunk.
- On Charles Barkley, "He was the worst person to play with as a rookie, because when you went in you got all the bad habits from him. You stayed out all night, and then you couldn’t figure out why you didn’t have it in the game."
- About his 2-year stint on Riker's Island for accidentally killing his limo driver, "It’s just something you can’t get over, and forgiving myself is something you think you can do. It’s much easier said than done, and I go into places where I can’t sleep. Then I started drinking and I get grouchy and angry and I get heavy and I hide and I’m no good to anybody."
He also talks about talking trash to Larry Bird, Michael Jordan's addiction to competition, and he delivers some outrageous takes on LeBron James.
