Stuff You Probably Didn’t Know About T-Will

Terrence Williams didn’t play basketball until he was in middle school, learning the game in a Seattle neighborhood from future Portland Trailblazer star Brandon Roy. He talks about that and other things in a recent interview during the Big East get together in New York:

A few more insights about T-will from the media guide:

Feels Al Pacino would be the best actor to play him in a movie.

What impresses him the most about Coach Pitino is “he understands and teaches you. He’s the greatest man I’ve ever met.”

Wishes he was married.

Afraid of heights.

Chose to attend U of L because “Coach P is the best I’ve seen and was real from the start, plus Louisville is the best city since Seattle.”

Chose his No. 1 uniform number because “the ones before me were just No. 1; I want to be the ONE.”

If you walked into his dorm room, the first thing you would notice is his 130 shoe boxes.

Would most like to meet his father.
