Amar: Everything You Need To Know About Blazers G Mo Williams

Russ Isabella-US PRESSWIRE

A Utah Jazz blogger offers extended commentary on new Portland Trail Blazers guard Mo Williams.

AllThatAmar, a hyper-talented writer over at SBNation's Utah Jazz blog, SLCDunk.com, has written a comprehensive "everything you need to know" recap of guard Mo Williams, who left the Jazz to sign with the Portland Trail Blazers as a free agent this summer. Amar covers Williams' highlights, lowlights, stats, advanced stats, memes, and everything in between.

After the first month of the season we had seen this 'take charge' Mo Williams do good things and do bad things. The designation of if it was good or bad actually had to deal with the superficial idea of making the shots he took or missing them. The behavior was the exact same. I guess we would expect a cold shooting Mo to holster his guns, but that's just not the mentality that shooters go into games with. They always think they're going to make their next shot.

A gun shy Mo Williams would probably have been worse than the worst of Devin Harris -- because at least Harris penetrated at times and got to the line.

The conundrum was later branded as #MOLO. (A play on the #YOLO lifestyle) Eventually, in the big picture, it probably became the rally cry for some guys in the front office as well -- as they ended up keeping Mo for only one year. (You only get to run around crazy jacking up shots once in this life . . . )

Give it a read!

The Blazers inked Williams to a two-year deal worth $5.4 million.

Williams, 30, averaged 12.9 points and 6.2 assists while shooting 43 percent from the field and 38.3 percent from deep in 46 starts for the Utah Jazz last season. He missed an extended portion of last season after undergoing surgery on his thumb.

Williams' 10-year career has included stops with the Jazz, Milwaukee Bucks, Cleveland Cavaliers and Los Angeles Clippers. He was a 2003 second-round pick after spending two years at Alabama.
