Jason Williams - "We're like some high-paid prostitutes anyway in this league."
What was once never openly uttered, has now finally been said out loud.
Am I surprised? No.
It is amusing though that it took this long for someone to finally say something.
I just didn't expect it to be Heat guard Jason "White Chocolate" Williams.
Longtime Heat beat writer and Sun-Sentinel columnist Ira Winderman wrote:
"The thing about it is how it affects your family," Williams said before scoring nine points in Tuesday's 96-82 loss to the Cavaliers.
With the trading deadline less than two months away, Williams said he can't help feel he's viewed more as an expiring contract than a needed contributor.
"We're like some high-paid prostitutes anyway in this league," he said. "They just use and get rid of us whenever they want."
Williams is in the final year of a contract that pays $8.9 million this season.
"If it happens, it happens," he said.
What Williams doesn't appreciate is being scapegoated.
"Losing, everybody's just going to start to look for reasons why," he said. "Blame this, blame that, blame him, blame me."
