Obviously we’re most interested in the first three. Jay Heaps was a superb reserve, a fiery walk-on as a basketball player, we loved Schweitzer’s heady approach to the game, and what can anyone say about Jason Williams?
He was a phenomenal talent. We liked him from the first time we watched. The guy was just irrepressible and about as unspoiled as someone at that level could possibly be.
We know now that it wasn’t easy, but he handled the end of his career with dignity and class, and how many of us could have had that level of humility? He was one of the best, and in more than one way, too.
