Mo Williams Nearly Retired After LeBron's Defection

Mi Williams was stressed out when LeBron james decided to leave town. Who wouldn’t be? With 3 years and $26 million still left on a contract, however, you figured Williams would come around pretty quickly.


That’s not the case with the emotional Mo, who told Marc Spears of that he nearly retired after James’ announced he was taking his talents to South Beach.


“That’s how bad it got,” Williams said. “I contemplated it. I really sat down and envisioned life after basketball. …I really saw myself not playing. It just didn’t make sense to me. …It doesn’t make sense to me.”


I, for one, am thankful Williams decided to stay.
