Jason Williams turned 40 this week, but it was fans of the NBA who were given a gift.
To honor the milestone birthday, the NBA chopped up a three minute highlight reel of White Chocolate’s best plays from his early years with the Sacramento Kings.
In Sacramento, Williams was surrounded by a roster of complementary players, with gifted passing big men in Chris Webber and Vlade Divac, a knock-down shooter in Peja Stojakovic and slashing guards in Bobby Jackson and Doug Christie to play off.
But the Kings shipped him to Vancouver for Mike Bibby after the 2001 season, and while the highlights continued with the Grizzlies, it’s those Kings years — and the way he burst onto the scene — that stick in fans’ heads.
