Williams became a respected basketball analyst for NBC after an injury forced a career-ending surgery in 2000. In 2002, Williams accidentally shot his driver while horsing around with a rifle at his New Jersey mansion. Things got worse when he tried to cover up the shooting. He was convicted of tampering with evidence but the jury acquitted him of aggravated manslaughter in 2004. Weeks before his re-trial in January 2010, Williams struck a plea deal and will serve three years in prison for a reduced count of aggravated assault.
