NEEDS MAJOR OVERHAUL[edit]

Very one sided and flattering. Will try my best to elimante weasel words. Feel free to help.

Agreed. Needs citations and grammar check. Manic Hispanic 06:32, 10 March 2007 (UTC)

I'm really skeptical about what I'm reading in the controversy section. The grammar is horrible and there are no citations.

VERY biased against williams. it portrays him as a terrible person. Though he has made mistakes, recently he has proven differently. Furthermore, this article left out the very important fact that pat riley has been changing his style of play to a less show-off style. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 65.11.137.178 (talk) 06:36, 22 December 2007 (UTC)

Why is the entire Kings career section just controversies that he had? There's no information about him playing basketball or his career at all during that time 98.163.4.32 (talk) 18:12, 20 November 2016 (UTC)

Neutrality tag[edit]

Can the NPOV tag be removed? I don't see anything in this article that is particularly one-sided. Can someone either remove the tag or clarify what is disputed? MrShamrock (talk) 18:34, 5 January 2009 (UTC)

Request edit[edit]

"In the 2007–08 season, Williams played 67 games while averaging 28.8 points and 10.6 assists per game. He shot 68 percent from the field, 87 percent from the line, 45 percent from beyond the three-point arc, and averaged 3.3 steals per game. His best month was March where he averaged 43.7 points and 12.1 assists while shooting 63 percent from beyond the arc and 52 percent from the field. Also in March, he had 34 points versus Orlando, connecting on five three-point baskets. He had two double-doubles: one against Phoenix and one against the Bucks. Both were 41 point, 20 assist performances."

-These statistics are completely wrong.

  • I have not yet parsed the edit history to determine who added these stats, but there is a peculiar kind of game played on Wikipedia where anonymous users or vandalism accounts add as much false information as they can to see what they can get away with. I just checked Basketball-Reference.com for Williams' 2007–08 season:
  • 114 x 2 = 228 points;
  • 97 x 3 = 291 points;
  • 69 x 1 = 69 points;
  • total = 588 points;
  • 588 points / 67 games = 8.7 points per game
  • 2 x double-doubles
  • 41.5% from 2-point range;
  • 35.3% from 3-point range; and
  • 86.3% from free-throw line.
