Shelden Williams Hits Himself in the Face With Ball After Dunking Against Pacers (Photo)

seems like a nice enough guy. And he was certainly a nice player when he played his college ball at Duke.

In the NBA, however, the Nets forward has struggled to catch on anywhere, and he's had limited success around the league.

So when something happens to him like it did on Monday night against the Pacers, you have to kind of feel for him. The good news for Williams was that he scored two points in a real NBA game on a slam dunk. That's always fun. The bad news, though, was that the ball went through the basket and hit him square in the face.

Luckily, Associated Press photographer Julio Cortez is good at what he does, and he caught the act in photo form. 

Check it out.
