ESPN's Jay Williams: "I Can't Wait to Have a Family"

Season 6 Episode 607
Aired on 03/15/2015 | CC tv-14
When he was 17, former NBA player Jay Williams had a dream that he was in a serious accident. Years later, in 2003, he says that dream came true when his motorcycle struck a utility pole and ended his basketball playing career.

After a long recovery, Jay says he's having a new dream—one that he hopes comes true sooner than later. "I can't wait to have a family," he says. "I cannot wait to be a dad and a loyal husband."

Jay says he's waiting patiently for the vision he's had to come true. "It was a dream that I was living on the water, and I took a tennis ball, and I threw it out into the ocean, and I had a dog that went to go get it," he says. "I didn't know what my wife looked like, but she was by my side. And I had these kids that were playing around on the beach, and I just remember being in a state of peace of mind, where I was just very tranquil, and I was very relaxed. And I just remember this is what life should be."
