Jay Williams, 10 Years After the Motorcycle Accident: Ten years ago, Chicago Bulls rookie guard and former Duke standout Jay Williams crashed his motorcycle and nearly lost his life, severely damaging his leg and ending a promising NBA career. A long profile in today's New York Times describes how Williams rebuilt his life and got past his reputation as someone who had it all and stupidly threw it away. "I hope people remind me of my accident every day of my life," said Williams. "Because that means I'm a prime example of somebody who had it and lost everything and may not have gotten it back in the same capacity but still reinvented myself." Williams allowed the Times to be the first media outlet to photograph his leg.
