Mavericks F Sean Williams throws up during game

Posted by Ben Golliver

Dallas Mavericks forward Sean Williams lost his lunch during a 115-93 loss to the Denver Nuggets on Monday night.

Star-Telegram.com reports that Williams threw up on the Mavericks' team bench after being subbed out of the game late in the fourth quarter.
When he was taken out of the game with 3:25 left, he proceeded to throw up when he reached the Mavs' bench. At that point, the Mavs players started laughing. Even Williams laughed -- after he finished throwing up.
The puking cleared out Dallas' bench as the Mavericks gave Williams his necessary space and made sure there was plenty of room for things to air out. Williams wiped his face with a towel while trainers and ballboys took turns attending to him.

Williams finished with 12 points, 3 rebounds and 1 block in 11 minutes. Williams, 25, is in his fourth NBA season; his three previous years were spent with the New Jersey Nets. Monday night marked his 127th career NBA game and, as far as we know, it was the first time he blew chunks on the bench during a game.

Mavericks roster set for now and later

Mavericks unexpectedly keep Steve Novak and Brian Cardinal despite previous decision to only hold 13 on roster. Posted by Matt Moore

The Dallas Mavericks are simultaneously gunning for this season and setting themselves up for the future. Dirk Nowitzki is entering his last contract. Jason Kidd is a dinosaur. Jason Terry is less of a jet and more of a Wright Brothers airplane. But it's still talented, versatile, and a strong contender for the No. 2 seed in the Western Conference. To fill out that versatile orster, the Mavericks today confirmed that both Steve Novak and Brian Cardinal would be making the roster. To make room , they waived Rashad McCants and Sean Williams.

The Mavericks had spoken strongly of only carrying 13 on the active roster, but loved what both Cardinal and Novak did in camp and preseason . It's an example of how hard work and chemistry can overcome an organization's conservative convictions. Cardinal is nothing to write home about, but he's a pro and has a good reputation from previous benches he's played on. Novak is a curious case. He blossomed in Houston, struggled in LA with the Clippers (who doesn't?) and has been lighting it up in preseason. He's shot 41% in thre preseason and with his size could be a dangerous perimeter option off the bench in a crunch.

Meanwhile, the Mavericks cut McCants who is expected to join their D-League affiliate in Frisco which begins play this year. Though not formally associated with the Texas Legends, the Mavericks have been instrumental in the formation of the team, with GM Donnie Nelson taking a significant role in the franchise. The Mavericks appear to be starting to examine their future, even as the current core begins another desperate attempt to finally claim the ring to validate a stellar run in the 2000's.
