Marvin Williams entered the NBA as the second overall pick in the 2005 NBA Draft out of North Carolina and while he carved a nice spot as a role player, he never seemed to meet expectations as a superstar.
But Williams has evolved along with the NBA as a stretch-4 and is having a late career resurgence.
“Marvin Williams, in this league right now, he’s the prototypical four man that you want,” Clifford said. “Because he creates space with his range shooting. He plays mistake free on offense. And on the other end, he’s so versatile defensively. He can battle all the bigger post up fours and he can guard all the other stretch fours. Then he guards the threes. Everybody thinks the league is four out, one in, and there are all these stretch fours. There are not a lot of stretch fours who can do what he can do.”
