Marvin Williams Stays Low-Key for A High Draft Pick
Mon Jun 27, 2005
Marvin Williams needed a car. Projected to go either first or second in tomorrow's NBA draft, Williams had places to go and things to do while training this summer in Chapel Hill. He didn't want to rely on his own two sneakers or the kindness of friends. Williams e-mailed his attorney, Jim Tanner, and within a few days, had a silver Hummer H2 with black leather interior. It was the right car for a teenager about to become a multimillionaire. It was the wrong car for Williams, a small-town kid from Bremerton, Wash., who usually chooses sensibility over showing off.
