Sad to hear. Should have resigned in NY, he'd probably still be in the league. Good luck, Purp.

There's a big difference between perscription cough syrup and cocaine. Which was it?

Damn purp, not surprised at all.

Don't let your car smell like weed, probable cause is a B*TCH.

I'm pretty sure it's not cocaine. Likely just weed and cough syrup. That's why we called him "Purp."

I also doubt he had the intent to sell. TMZ sensationalizing again.
It's hard being a Knicks fan...

Codeine Cough Syrup and Cocaine are not "that different" in terms of addictiveness and dangerousness....Codeine is a strong narcotic drug, potentially much more addictive than cocaine.

Having said that, Damn Purp...this makes me really sad. As someone who has dealt with drug issues for a few years, I empathize with him and know how easy it is to fall back into it when things don't go perfectly. But damn, damn, damn.

Good luck Shawne Williams. It looks like your NBA career is over.

They said he was trying to sell? Didn't he get MLE money after he left the Knicks. Maybe it was half the MLE, but even then, that is still big money. Answering my own question, a lot of times, it's not about the money with these things.
