Mo Williams is playing extremely well for the Clippers. He’s doing a great job coming off the bench and powering that second unit. But he hasn’t been there long enough to be complaining about an extension. Has he?
It’s time for the Clippers to take a stand as a team to overcome such a hit, but instead Williams is saying, “I just want to know where I stand with the Clippers.”
Translation: He’s looking for a contract extension.
Me, me, and me, he’s saying, as we sit down to talk about life without Billups, and why am I not surprised?
He was upset when the Clippers acquired Paul and Billups, two future Hall of Famers to buoy a long-lost franchise. Everyone is talking about what it might mean to have the Clippers improve so quickly except for Williams, who wants to know, what about me?
“I want to play,” he says in explaining his attitude, but what he really means to say is, he wants to start.
But aren’t Paul and Billups better players?
“I’ll let you decide,” Williams says. “They are teammates of mine, so I won’t say.”
