TWill Toned It Down to Up His Game

In a season of ups and downs, Terrence Williams had more of them than most.  After a solid start under Lawrence Frank, he was benched by Kiki Vandeweghe, made bad use of his Twitter account and was even threatened with the D-League if he didn't act professionally.  Then, in the last two months of the season, he turned it around culminating in a triple double vs. Chicago and Rookie of the Month honors.

Looking back, he thinks his personality played a big role in his problems and so toned it down. "People in New Jersey who don't know my personality, they might take it as me being arrogant or a person that's not serious all the time," he told the Louisville Courier-Journal. "So I think you have to dial down just a little bit."  Whatever he did, it worked. Rod Thorn is optimistic about him.

"He's a very gifted player -- he can pass the ball, rebound the ball, handle the ball, he's physically tough," Thorn said. "Like most young players, he needs to be a better defensive player, but he has the ability to do it. I think he's got a bright future. I think he's going to be a real good player in the league."
