SPORTS SPECTRUM EPISODE 11: MONTY WILLIAMS
Sports Spectrum Podcast with Jason Romano • 22m
Monty Williams is the head coach of the NBA’s Phoenix Suns. He was named to his current role in May 2019 after serving as an assistant coach with the Philadelphia 76ers last season.
Selected in the first round of the 1994 NBA Draft by the New York Knicks, Williams played 11 seasons in the NBA with the Knicks, Spurs, Nuggets, Magic and 76ers.
After his playing career ended, Williams went into coaching, serving as an assistant with the Portland Trail Blazers for five seasons before being named the head coach of the then-New Orleans Hornets (now Pelicans) franchise.
On this episode of the podcast, we talk to Williams about his new role with the Suns, coming to faith in Christ, the state of faith in the NBA today, and how he’s processed grief and forgiveness since the loss of his wife three years ago in a tragic car crash.
