Try as we might, we never get tired of watching old Jason Williams highlights. White Chocolate was one of the most dazzling play-makers of the last two decades. His handle, quickness, and court vision was superseded only by his ingenuity with the basketball.
He had an uncanny ability to see plays before they materialized, and he regularly hit teammates with laser-like pinpoint passes that often caught them off-guard (we’re looking at you, Vlade) because no one else could’ve anticipated them, let alone pulled them off.
It’s hard to choose an absolute favorite highlight from his career – there’s the crossover on Gary Payton, of course, or his many behind-the-back ball fakes – but if there’s one particular play that illustrates who he was a player, it’s the elbow pass to Raef LaFrentz during the 2000 Rookie-Sophomore game.
Somehow, a North Carolina high-schooler named Antoine Lindsey managed to execute it to near-perfection in a recent game.
