Sowing in the Motherland

By Mobolaji Olambiwonnu

SHOP CHATTER: Catch Up on the Scoop

By Big Lez


Now this is a case we haven’t heard about in quite a while. Former NBA star Jayson Williams was tasered by police in his posh hotel suite Monday after the reportedly suicidal ex-NBA star resisted their attempts to take him to a hospital.

Associated Press claims the police were called to the hotel in Manhattan when a female friend reported the former New Jersey Nets player was… Continue
