Sean Williams, The Mavs Best Hope, Throws Up On Himself

With Dirk Nowitzki calling the Dallas Mavericks "old, slow and out of shape", the loss of Tyson Chandler's athleticism at the center position is more glaring by the day.

Brendan Haywood, in particular, doesn't seem capable of stepping into Chandler's shoes, which leaves the center position in the hands of former Texas Legends (the Mavs' NBDL team) center Sean Williams.

Williams excited fans at the American Airlines Center Monday night with his ability to play way above the rim and run the court, but having just signed with Dallas last week, he may not quite be in NBA shape yet.

In a scene out of the first practice of two-a-days, Williams cleared the bench after throwing up when he came out of the game in the fourth quarter.

The video after the jump:

After two blowout losses, it seems that the Mavericks season is going to come down to a 6'10 center who last played in the NBA in 2009-2010 and decided to return with the same hair-cut as the "Crab Man" from the NBC show My Name Is Earl.
