Jay Williams was a tremendous basketball player, and he’s a pretty good TV analyst. His judge of character, however, might be a little bit questionable.
Williams surprised many in Twitter world Monday night when he tweeted a photo of him hanging out on a plane with Justin Bieber of all people. What was even more head-scratching was Williams’ caption on the photo, in which he called Bieber “truly inspiring” and “changing lives.”

The Internet was not a fan of that move. Immediately, Williams was bombarded with negative tweets from followers questioning his decision to hang out with the polarizing Bieber. Even one of Williams’ ESPN colleagues gave the former Duke point guard a hard time.

Bieber’s actually been running with a lot of athletes lately. He went to church and then bowling with Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson in May, had a spa day with boxer Floyd Mayweather and recently partied with Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel.
