Boston College coach Al Skinner played for the Nets and Rod Thorn. So when the team was considering taking BC's Sean Williams in the 2007 draft, Thorn asked the coach his opinion. Skinner had twice thrown Williams off his team, yet supported taking him. He still supports Williams even in the face of his arrest at BC this month. Sean can succeed, says Skinner, only if understands the value of maturity.
