Remembering the Mo Williams Show

On-screen chemistry rivaled only by on-court chemistry.

Lost amid the analysis of the Mo Williams/Desmond Mason trade is the tragic casualty of the critically acclaimed early 2000's cult classic, The Mo Williams Show.

The Mo Williams Show, for those who missed out on the phenomenon (for shame) was a regular video feature at the Bradley Center. The interview-style program typically ranged ranged from 60-90 seconds, which invariably went by all too quickly. Because like they said in the '80's, the decade that birthed Mo, time flies when you're having fun.

Mo's hard-hitting style at times left some feeling uneasy, but he compromised journalistic standards about as often as he passed up a mildly open jumper, which is to say nigh on never.

Check the '06-'07 and '07-'08 archives while you can. These vids are phenomenally swagalious, not to mention hotter than Mo against Indy. Yeah, so we mentioned it.

Plus, one of our favorite basketball reporters, Jim Eichenhofer, whom we interviewed before a Hornets game last season, sat down and chatted with Mo about the show last year.

Williams: [trying to keep a straight face] I think we should definitely take it national. [teammate Bobby Simmons interjects: "Mo’s going to compete with Seinfeld!"] I want to challenge the Jay Lenos and Seinfelds of the world. It’s been going great and getting a lot of publicity.

All I can say about "a lot of publicity" is that is "a lot of an understatement."

Q: The Mo Williams Show or Seinfeld?

A: The Mo Williams Show.

*Update: Cleveland.com reports The Mo Williams Show lives. Just in Cleveland now.

Before the online chat, he also filmed the first installment of the Mo Williams Show with special guest Boobie Gibson. A popular feature in Milwaukee, the part-interview, part-quiz show will shown on The Q scoreboard during games this season and also will be available on cavs.com.
