ATR baller and streetball legend Corey “Homicide” Williams is back in Lebanon this winter playing with his new team Bejjeh in the Lebanon Division A League. The veteran guard is having an All-Star season. Bejjeh’s top scorer, Williams is in league’s top 10 in points (7th best: 23) and leads the league in steals per game (2.9). Homicide was named Asia-basket.com Player of the Week last month when he recorded a triple-double of 26 points, 12 rebounds and 12 assists in Bejjeh’s 78-75 victory over Anibal on Dec. 9.
From Homicide: My whole experience here in Lebanon has been a great one, and of course, I’m a rock star anywhere I go. I continue to live my fantasy life. I love, absolutely love, what I do. I play with a chip on my shoulder. I play as if I have something to prove every time I step on the court, and that’s because I do. The team is winning games and doing well. The unity is getting stronger. Our main goal is to make the playoffs, and then we’ll go from there.
Bejjeh is in a close playoff run. The team is in seventh place right now, and only the top eight make the playoffs. We’re sure Homicide will keep us posted.
