Warriors.com Blog: 2010-11 Recap - Reggie Williams
Warriors.com will provide constant blog updates with its wide-ranging coverage throughout the year. With news updates, photo galleries, videos and more, warriors.com will continue to offer the most complete coverage of the team on the Web.
Itís hard to believe that Reggie Williams just finished his first full NBA season. As recently as March of 2010, the left-hander out of Virginia Military Institute was playing for the Sioux Falls Skyforce. Now 14 months removed from the NBA Development League, Williams has established himself as a legitimate NBA player with an even brighter future. Hear from the Warriors swingman in the video below:
Williams, who averaged 9.2 points, 2.7 rebounds and 1.5 assists in 20.3 minutes in the 2010-11 season, has shown the potential to be an explosive and crafty scorer at the NBA level. He knocked down eight 3-pointers en route to a career-high 31 points on December 8 in San Antonio and averaged 17.2 points in 22 games in which he played at least 25 minutes. The Warriors were the second-best 3-point shooting team in the league during the 2010-11 season, and Williams had a lot to do with that. He ranked eighth in the NBA in 3-point shooting (42.3 percent) and tied a franchise record by knocking down eight-straight shots from long distance over a three-game span (Jan. 28 Ė Feb. 3).
In many ways, Williams was an ideal player to come off the bench for the Warriors in the recently completed season. He was an efficient scorer who saw time at both guard positions as well as at small forward. The next step for Williams is to become more consistent in his play, and as indicated in the video above, he is well aware that there is room for his game to grow. Should he continue to develop his skills and athletic repertoire, Williams can be a tremendous asset for the Warriors for years to come.
