Williams was the receipient of the Performer of the Week award earlier this season and was elected to the 2010 D-League All-Star game. Today, Williams built on his resume by being dubbed Player of the Month in the month of February. There's not much more the Skyforce can ask from their star forward this season.
Last month, Williams averaged 28.1 points, 4.9 rebounds and 3.5 assists all while shooting 60% from the field. Most notably, Williams racked up 43 points on February 25th against the Idaho Stampede. Thanks to his stellar effort, the Skyforce stayed in the playoff hunt as they posted an 8-1 record for the month and currently hold the number three spot in the Eastern Conference.
With the way Williams is performing, both the Miami Heat and Minnesota Timberwolves are beginning to pay attention to the Virginia Military Academy alumnus. With the Heat dealing with a few cases of sporadic injuries and the Wolves in search of a dependable rotation, Williams could be called up before season's end. If not, the Skyforce will be just fine with that. He will just continue to take the D-League by storm.
