Jayson Williams Not Ruling Out Comeback
(Jayson) Williams also says he’s feeling great physically. He’s back down to his playing weight and looks like he could still bang on the blocks and grab a few rebounds. In fact, he says he has been schooling some up-and-comers in the NBA on and off the court. Which is why, even at the age of 44, he isn’t ruling out the possibility of attempting a comeback to the game he still loves.
Could you see yourself involved in the NBA again?
I take it one day at a time with my sobriety and whatever God has in store for me. If I start looking too far ahead then I’m gonna start controlling things. I don’t wanna do that no more. I want to be the employee and let God be the employer. I can tell you one thing: I can honestly say I’m in better shape than I ever was in life.
Are you fully recovered from your leg injuries?
Running like a sewing machine. Smooth.
So you’re saying you’re ready for a comeback?
[Laughing.] I’m ready for whatever God has in store for me.
