    He was truly something else. Seems he still got it.

    His elbow pass in transition during Sacramento's peak is one of my all-time favourite plays.

    Jason Williams was one of those guys whose flash was alot more than his substance. He was ridiculously unproductive in Sacramento, a liability really, but incredibly fun to watch.

    On the flip side, when he was traded he slowed himself down, stopped trying to be as flashy and became much more conservative, he became a much more productive player - but nobody cared anymore because he wasn't on the highlight reel every night.

    In his 2nd year he shot 37%, .287 from 3 despite taking over 6 a game, (eFG% of .45) and had 7.3 assist per game (an OK number, but significantly lower than his reputation would have one think it should be) but with 3.7 TOs a game.

    For every highlight reel pass he had, he had one that resulted in a TO and had fans (and likely Rick Aldeman) furious.

    Still a crap load of fun to watch though

    Completely agree. His years with Miami (where he started all regular season and playoffs for the Championship Heat) were by far his best, even though he had lost alot of what made him a favourite amongst fans. I remember he actually had the Trophy sealing bucket that year didn't he??

    I don't, and never did care for this fellow. He is a great exhibition player, but he just isn't a top NBA talent.

    I know this may be a bit controversial but I think the Raptors have proven that they're the best team in the NBA from Canada

    Oh buddy... White Chocolate was something else. He took ALOT of risks, which drove Coaches crazy, but the fans loved him.

    LOL at the look from Payton at the end after getting crossed.

    I'm pretty sure Chris Webber and Divac absolutely hated getting hit in the head with passes. Sure he's fun to watch, and when his tricks work they are amazing assists. But even his own teammates didnt know when the rock was coming! Surprisingly, in his later years with the magic and the heat, White Chocolate seemed to have found the perfect balance of showmanship and playing the point. If he that had clicked a bit earlier in his career I see no reason why he couldnt have been up there with Nash and Kidd for 3-4 years.

    White Chocolate was one of the few who brought a streetball style to the NBA and thus, made a name for himself in the process. Many streetballers, like SKip To Ma Lou, who came to the NBA mostly played a conservative game
