I was having a brief conversation with someone about the Pacers today, and Shawne Williams came up.
The man I was talking to is often quick to judge, and of course was very anti-Shawne. I tried to stick up for him, but failed miserably because I think I mis-spoke about why we should lay off of him, and it just fueled the fire for this man to be down on Shawne.
I believe I incorrectly stated that Shawne pressured into letting this murderer into his home, when in hindsight I think I was so anxious to defend him I said something I'd read as speculation, not as fact.
Is that true or not, and have you ever been in a situation like this? I was so, so frustrated because I wanted to argue with him but between his mind already being made up (which is enough, really) and already dropping the ball, I had to bite my tongue. The hardest part? I didn't get to part company with him for several more hours, and we don't usually get along that well anyway. "Fun".
So I thought I might at least make myself feel better for getting a recap on the facts that MIGHT make Shawne look better regarding this "friend" of his.....? Thanks.
