What Happened To Former NBA Star Jason Williams? (Story)

    Former point guard Jason Williams was known for his extraordinary ballhandling skills and outstanding reel passes.

    williams began his career with the sacramento kings in the 1998 draft in florida.

    his style of play earned him the nickname “white chocolate”.

    During his rookie year, he was given the nickname by the Sacrament Kings public relations department.

    williams says he didn’t mind the nickname and continued his career playing at a high level.

    Enjoyed three seasons with the Kings before being traded to the Grizzlies, the team he actually spent his final season with.

    After his first stint in Memphis, he joined forces with Shaq and Dwyane Wade in Miami for three seasons, where he won his only NBA title.

    After the 2008 season, and due to various injuries, Williams briefly retired before joining the Orlando Magic the next season.

    his time with the magic only lasted one season, and the 2010-2011 season, his last, was spent with three different teams: orlando, toronto, and finally memphis.

    After his stints in the Miami Heat, Williams was primarily a backup averaging just 13 minutes per game, but in his prime, he was known as a flashy pass-first point guard with a competitive spirit.

    why was williams never an all-star?

    williams finished his nba career in the top 100 in assists and 3-pointers, but was shunned as a star every year.

    Known as one of the best passers in the league, Williams was often overshadowed by other league stars in their prime.

    These players included: Steve Nash, Stephon Marbury, Vince Carter, Steve Francis, and Kobe Bryant.

    During most of Williams’ prime, he played for bad teams.

    For example, he played on two teams in Memphis that only won 28 and 23 games in consecutive years.

    life after basketball

    By the time his NBA career ended, Williams was one of the most popular products in Ice Cube’s “Big 3” 3-on-3 league.

    joined rashard lewis’s “3-headed monsters” team, but injured his knee in the season opener and never returned.

    williams’ life outside of basketball isn’t as flashy as his cross-court passes and not looking behind his back.

    He is very private when it comes to personal matters, but he has been candid in expressing how important his family is to him.

    He even has the names of his three children tattooed on his forearm.

    His son, Jaxon, 18, is also a basketball standout like his father, who plays at Windermere High School in Florida.

    His post-NBA life hasn’t been as exciting as his basketball career, but it’s safe to say Jason Williams enjoys every minute he spends with his wife of 18 years and their kids.

    Both Jason and Denika are active on social media platforms where they often share their love for each other and their family.

    While we may not have seen the best of white chocolate due to injuries, your wife and children are seeing the best of your husband and father in retirement.

    reception work?

    williams remains one of the most popular players in the sacramento area.

    a fan recently tagged williams in a tweet about joining the kings front office and responded with interest.

    “I’m ready,” Williams said.

    I’m ready!!!

    will we ever see williams in the main office of the kings or any other organization?

    Only time will tell, but we know anything is possible with a man once known as “the greatest showman on the court.”
