Rainier Beach High School has already provided the NBA with one eccentric, hyper, hyper-athletic fan favorite--Nate Robinson is among the league's most popular players. Today, the school's about to provide another.
Louisville's Terrence Williams is projected to be a top pick in this afternoon's NBA draft. But more than that, he's sure to be a fan favorite. Let's have a look:
Ridiculously athletic dunks: Check.
Solid body art: Check
Occasional, absurdist bursts of ego: Check
Barbie backpack, SpongeBob and Big Bird Socks, customized t-shirts to honor coaches and teammates, throwback jerseys with photos of the player scotch-taped on: Check.
On top of all this, he's a fun player to watch--a great ball-handler, and, unlike Robinson, a great passer and defender. One problem: he can't really shoot. But never mind that. Let the Terrence Williams era begin!
