An estimated 900 people, including the entire Oklahoma City Thunder organization and several big names around the NBA, were among those in attendance at the memorial service for Ingrid Williams, the wife of Thunder assistant coach Monty Williams, on Thursday, February 18 at Crossings Community Church in Oklahoma City.
Those with ties to the NBA included Gregg Popovich, Doc Rivers, Alvin Gentry, Kiki Vandeweghe, Jerry Colangelo, Jeff Van Gundy, Tom Thibodeau, David West, Anthony Davis, Ryan Anderson, Chris Paul, Tim Duncan and many others from the NBA family who traveled to Oklahoma City to support Coach Williams and his family.
Popovich, Rivers, Paul and Duncan not only attended, but then flew to Los Angeles for the Clippers game with San Antonio Thursday night at the Staples Center.
Ingrid Williams died from injuries suffered in a car accident last week.
Ingrid Williams was 44 years old and leaves behind her husband Monty, who spoke at the service, and five children.
