The Ball Boy Who Lectured T-Will

New, comments

ESPN has tracked down and interviewed the 13-year-old Springfield Armor ball boy who told Terrence Williams he shouldn't get down on himself after being demoted.  Instead, Carlos Gonzalez Jr. told Williams "You need to learn from it." T-Will said the boy's advice and his mother's tears helped him deal with his situation.

"I was nervous," said Gonzalez, who approached Williams before his first game with the Armor. "But I just wanted to help him. I thought to myself, 'Wow I'm actually meeting an NBA player, and I wanted to give him a heads up.'  There's no word if Gonzalez will be showing up at a Nets' game soon.
