Sam Williams admits to being more interested in athletics than his studies in high school. Fortunately for Sam, Coach Jim Newman helped him adjust his priorities. The result was that Sam attended and graduated from Arizona State University (ASU) before being drafted into the NBA in the early 80s. By the way, while at ASU, he was starting five with the likes of Alton Lister, Lafayette Fat Lever and Kurt Nimphius.
After playing with two NBA teams, he finished out his pro basketball career in leagues throughout Europe and Asia. His first daughter was born in Turkey during this period. Sam talks candidly about planning for sons and being blessed with two daughters. Retired from basketball and living in Los Angeles, Sam is currently a sports entrepreneur.
