Knicks’ Chandler Refutes ESPN Jay Williams Claims Bulls Use to Smoke Bud?!
“Nah, I don’t know why he would say something like that,” Chandler said during the 14th annual Knicks Bowl at Chelsea Piers as part of the team’s effort to raise money for the Garden of Dreams Foundation.
“I think that’s ridiculous that he would come out and say something like that,” Chandler went on. “I don’t remember that, to be honest with you. And, it’s just unfortunate that he would make that kind of statement about our team.”
“I didn’t know how to handle it at first,” Williams said in the NY Times report. “I didn’t know how to be around it. Guys were on the bench, trying to kick it to girls in the stands, having ball boys run over. I mean, some guys were high.”
Asked to explain what he meant, he said: “There were guys smoking weed before games. Guys asking in the middle of the game, ‘Do you smell popcorn.’”
Williams didn’t stop there. He also alleged that players were gambling after games.
“They’re playing dice in the back of the plane for money,” Williams said, according to the story. “Like, we just lost by 30 tonight! And we’ve got a game tomorrow! It bugged me out.” – nydailynews
