Jason Aldean has filed for divorce, kicking last week's news of separation from his wife up a notch. "This is a really tough time for my entire family," the country singer told Us Weekly in a statement about the divorce, noting that he and Jessica Ussery had been together since they were teenagers - he's 36 now - and had had ups and downs along the way. They would have been married 12 years in August. "I've learned that everyone always rushes to judgement when they hear news like this," he told the mag . "That's really hard because no one knows anything about our relationship but us. I understand that because of my job, I have to go through a lot of this in the public eye, but for my girls' sake I really wish people would give us some level of privacy and at the very least be respectful of them.

Jerome Williams has made little secret of his desire to start for the Angels. And with a 4-2 record and a staff-low 3.48 ERA in seven tries entering the weekend, he had a pretty good case that his desire should be fulfilled. Problem is the Angels have already spent $45.7 million on their rotation, which has limited Williams to long relief or the odd spot start, like the one he got Saturday in place of the injured Jason Vargas. Unfortunately for Williams it was an opportunity he didn't take advantage of, with the Pittsburgh Pirates pounding him for five runs and eight hits in six innings of a 6-1 win over the Angels.

He's the one. The Sacramento Kings' Jason Williams isn't the one they figured would be the one, not with his rebel-without-a-cause college career, but the NBA's marketing machine can only nominate. It takes a higher power to elect. Ask Vancouver's Mike Bibby, the No. 2 pick in the draft. He was supposed to be the one, so it may not have been coincidence he became Williams' first poster child. The first week of the season, Williams came down on Bibby, dribbling left-handed . . .

White Chocolate? Dude doesn't come around anymore. Truth be told, he never existed in the first place. Someone in the Sacramento Kings' PR office made up that name for Jason Williams, the country boy with the way-downtown game, back in his rookie season. The "SportsCenter" guys started using it with their nightly Williams highlight--White Chocolate posterizes Gary Payton! Boo-yah!--and it took on a life of its own. No one really called him White Chocolate, of course.

When the trophy for the Wooden Award was designed, John Wooden wanted one more figure to depict the complete player besides the passer, the shooter, the defender, the ballhandler and the rebounder. "I wanted someone with a cap and gown," Wooden said. That can be a lot to ask in an age of players leaving early for the NBA, but Wooden couldn't have been more satisfied Sunday when Jason Williams of Duke won the award.
