Born in Parkersburg, West Virginia, Williams grew up with his mother Denise and his brother. Because of his mother’s influence playing volleyball and basketball, Williams grew up loving sports. In his younger years he excelled in wrestling, even winning two state championships, one when he was just eight and another one when he was 12.
Williams attended The Colony High School, and continued with wrestling but also excelled in basketball, at which he continued to perform well, and ended his high school career with a 29-2 season, leading his team to the Texas State Semi finals, although they were not able to win.
In 2002, Williams was recruited by the University of Illinois to play for their basketball team while studying sport management. In his first year he already played 30 games out of 32, immediately showing his potential. In his 2004-2005 seasons, he bagged a number of awards that made him one of the premier players in his team. Some of his recognitions include being named the First Team All-Big Ten, Big Ten All-Tournament Team, and he was also a finalist for the Wooden Award. After three years playing college basketball, Williams decided to forgo his senior year and enter the NBL Draft.
In 2005, he was selected as the third overall draft pick by the team Utah Jazz. His selection to play for the NBA officially catapulted him to success, and tremendously helped his net worth. Although he started slowly with the team, eventually he came off the bench and played as their point guard. After six years playing for the Jazz, he switched teams and transferred to the New Jersey (now Brooklyn) Nets. Recently in 2015, he once again moved teams and is now playing for the Dallas Mavericks.
Today, Williams is one of the most well-known players in the NBA. Some of his achievements include the NBA All-Star game from 2010 to 2012, and NBA Skills Challenge Champion in 2008. He also played for the National Team at the FIBA championships and helped Team USA win the Gold Medal in 2007, and another Gold Medal in 2008 at the Summer Olympic Games. All these recognitions and participations have contributed to his popularity and increasing wealth, as he has now played almost 900 games in all competitions. He also earns some of his net worth by endorsing products like Nike, Red Bull and Vitaminwater.
In terms of his personal life, Williams married Amy Young in 2006, and together they have four children, two girls and two boys. Aside from playing basketball, Williams also gives back by starting his charity Point of Hope Foundation in 2007, which caters to those who are in need. From time to time he hosts philanthropic events and participates in various charities.
