No Longer the Memphis Showboat 

From a Miami Herald story on former Grizzlies bad boy, Jason Williams: "It might not look like it when he's bouncing basketballs off the gym walls and through the hoop just to prove he can. Or when he's flinging the ball clear across the practice court to try to hit a defenseless Michael Doleac.

"It's during moments such as those that Williams seems like the carefree, kid-at-heart point guard who couldn't care less about his fall from grace in Sacramento or his countless losses and ugly confrontations in Memphis."

As J-Will's Heat prepares for the NBA finals, he gets some love from the local daily. Read it all here.
