So This Is What Happened to Greg Williams Of The Ticket

Man, the tale of former Ticket talk show host Greg Williams is wild.  Dallas Observer sports writer Richie Whitt pens an all timer. 

Greg spent a lot of time on the radio going after guys like Michael Irvin, Roy Tarpley, Quincy Carter, Steve Howe, Leon Lett, and Barry Bonds for drug use…only to be a drug user himself.  Karma is a strong thing.

This one is really long, but worth the read.

I feel for current Hardline talk show host Corby Davidson.  He gets shed in a bad light in this article.  Having been through radio breakups, I know there is more to what Whitt wrote.  Corby can’t go on the record because his bosses want him to just let the situation go away, but we know it won’t.

I’m glad Greg didn’t take his own life.  I hope he can move on.  There is more to life than sports radio.  Trust me. I know.

Funny, I asked Greg one time what he was doing to lose weight.  He told me he was doing boxing and he stopped eating anything white, like rice or potatoes.   After reading this story I realized he had lap band surgery.  I was lied to, but it’s all good.

 

Josh Howard Likes His Weed

I guess Josh Howard made sure his trade value went down before the Mavericks get sent home for the playoffs.

Josh went on the Michael Irvin show and said that he likes to smoke marijuana, but only in the offseason.

It makes me remember that line from Dave Chappelle in the movie Half Baked, “Now I don’t do drugs…just weed.”

You can hear the interview as Howard explains his “personal choice”.

Why go on the radio before Game 3 in the playoffs against the Hornets and reveal this?  The game will be in Dallas, the Mavs are down 0-2.  It’s just bad timing and against the law.

The season is going up in smoke.  Poor Avery Johnson.
