Here is a portion of my Sunday column:
Williams provides the Sixers with instant offense off the bench. He led the Sixers in fourth-quarter scoring (4.3 points) this season, in addition to having a team-best 10 double-digit final periods and leading all NBA reserves with 356 free throw attempts. He can create his own shot, as he did with the game-winning 3-pointer in the Game 4 victory over the Heat, which makes him a viable option at the end of games.
Williams' detractors say he shoots too much and from too far out, doesn't defend (he had less than half the steals in 2010-11 than the season before), has the body of a point guard but is more of a shooting guard and that he's paid too much for what he does (Williams just completed the third season of a five-year, $25 million deal and has two years and $12.31 million left).
