Williams Considered Retirement

Cleveland Cavaliers guard Mo Williams recently told Yahoo! Sports that he had considered retirement after LeBron James announced his decision to “take his talents to South Beach.”

“That’s how bad it got,” Williams said. “I contemplated it. I really sat down and envisioned life after basketball. I really saw myself not playing. It just didn’t make sense to me…It doesn’t make sense to me.”

During his two years with James on the Cavaliers, the team won 66 games in 2008-09 and had 61 wins in 2009-10.

Williams, 27, has three years remaining on his current deal with the Cavs.

According to Yahoo! Sports, Williams went on to say, “This summer was very, very stressful for me. I really lost a lot of love for the game this summer. You play this game for one reason. You play to win games and win championships.

“I couldn’t understand why a lot of things were happening to our organization, to a really good basketball team. I couldn’t really understand it. And when you don’t understand things, it can really stress you out.”

Williams also said he liked his role on the “old” Cavs.

“It’s crazy because ever since [James left], everybody I see, they approach me and say, ‘Hey, you’re going to be able to play your game now,’” he said. “‘You are going to be able to show everybody what you got,’ or ‘you’re going to be able to do this.’ I was happy with my role. We were winning basketball games. I was coming home every night a winner.”

Training camp for the Cavs starts Sept. 28.

Cavs In Talks with Jazz Center

The Cavaliers have been in contract talks with center Kyrylo Fesenko, a restricted free agent with the Utah Jazz.

According to the Salt Lake Tribune, along with the Jazz and Cavs, the New Orleans Hornets, Houston Rockets and Golden State Warriors also are looking at the 7’1”, 300-pound Fesenko. The 23-year-old free-agent center was selected in the second round of the 2007 draft by the Philadelphia 76ers.

Last year, Fesenko averaged 2.6 points, 1.8 rebounds and approximately eight minutes per game with the Jazz.

Fesenko will likely be a backup wherever he goes.

  1. “Ho” Williams considered retirement after the SF from SVSM decided to leave. That doesn’t speak very favorably for the new “leader” of the Cavs. I personally wish he would’ve gone on and quit. He didn’t consider retirement after the team got bounced from the playoffs the 2nd year in a row after having the BEST record in the league, AGAIN!!! He didn’t consider retirement after all that drama came out about Delonte sleeping with “Whoreia” James, or when Mike Brown and Danny Ferry left the organization. Only when the SF from SVSM decided to leave, is when he thought about quitting. This summer put alot of things in perspective for me as a fan in Cleveland. Once we as fans started to “annoint” players to be bigger than the team, city and sport, much like we did with the SF from SVSM, is when we set ourselves up for heartbreak. My new philosophy is it’s Cleveland first and everything else after, and if “Ho”, didn’t or doesn’t want to be a member of this organization, then I say bounce. If you don’t love this team or city and all it has to offer, then don’t let the door knob hit ya where the good Lord split ya!
