Jason Williams Biography
Nicknamed White Chocolate, Jason Williams was born November 18, 1975 and is an American professional basketball player who currently plays for the Orlando Magic. He started his NBA career in 1998, and retired after ten years in September 2008. He returned from retirement on August 19, 2009 and signed with the Orlando Magic.
Early in his career, Williams built a reputation for an unorthodox, "street" style of play. He became a regular on Sportscenter for his spectacular passes and dazzling assists. He regularly attempted, and mostly completed passes such as behind-the back, no-look and half-court. Popular user-generated video Internet sites contain many "home-made" highlight videos dedicated solely to William's highlights. He was also known for taking spectacular three-point shots that drove home-audiences wild. With his risky play, he at times was turnover-prone: in his second and fourth years, he peaked at over 3.5 per game. His playing style led Williams to be benched during crucial periods of some games. For example, in the 2000 NBA Playoffs, Williams sat out most of the fourth quarter in all five games against the Lakers.
In his later years with Memphis and Miami, he has significantly tamed his extravagant playing style (in the last three seasons, he has never averaged more than 1.89 turnovers per game) and has consistently achieved one of the highest assists per turnover ratios in the NBA. Williams retired with career averages of 11.7 points and 6.5 assists per game.
In the Rookie Challenge of the NBA All-Star Weekend in 2000, Williams made a seemingly impossible behind-his-back pass off the elbow on a full sprint to Raef LaFrentz. "I did it so you all wouldn't ask me to ever do it again," Williams said.
