Deferential Marvin Williams Now In Spotlight


Marvin Williams never tried to be a star, choosing to blend in on a talented North Carolina team that went on to win a national championship. Too bad he never had the kind of game befitting someone so comfortable with anonymity. The 19-year-old has a big man's body and a guard's shooting touch, skills that have made the 6-foot-9 forward a candidate for the No. 1 overall pick in next week's NBA draft. And from shoe deals to photo shoots to workouts in which his entire game is scrutinized, Williams now can't escape the spotlight after just one year as a college reserve. (WRAL.com)
