If Jason Williams tightened up some screws, i think he could have been an elite, multiple all star point guard

i know its just a youtbe video, but he made these passes on a consistent basis in his prime

That video is hilarious. "The White Chocolate"!!!!

Dude was sweet. Wasn't he one of those guys that had horrible knees, too?

He used to jack up 3's at the worst times through the course of a 48-min ball game, which is why Adelman got rid of him and traded him to the Grizzlies for Mike Bibby, and more conventional point guard who got others involved and could score at a more efficient rate. Plus, Bibby was more of a dagger of a shooter than J-Will will ever be.

I'm pretty sure Jason "Jay" Williams would have been better for the Bulls if he didn't get injured after his rookie season. :facepalm:

Eeh, I don't know, I mean apart from the smarts and all, he wasn't that good of a defensive player either. So I dunno, too many aspects of his game that he lacked besides just the smarts.

But offensively, sure, he'd be one of the really good talents of the early 2000s.

The same things that made him awesome made him bad. For every sick pass he'd make he'd make two bad ones. For every 28 foot three he'd make he'd miss a few 30 footers. He needed to go through a few years of failing to learn how to play the right way, it wasn't just a matter of getting his head on straight, it was learning how to play the right way.

I'm pretty sure Jason "Showing off the Shotguns" Williams would have been the best Jason Williams if he didnt have to retire early due to injuries, long before shooting his limo driver :guns:

He was Randy Moss's point guard and quarterback in the old days.

That's right, I forgot they were on the same high school team. I've never seen Randy play, but I'm sure he lived above the rim.

I remember seeing him and Chad Pennington back in college make it look like backyard football...Moss is just out of this world talented.

I've always loved his game back when he was on the Grizzlies.

Totally on-point. Take away his AND1 style and you're changing his whole game. You can't take hypothesize and take away the "flash" because he probably snuck in a couple impossible assists because of that flash.

IMHO, he would never have been elite.

The best he could of been was a Mike Bibby. He is a good role player though.

A lot of the nicer plays especially the dribble ones are carries and he is lucky that they were not called. I mean they looked pretty but they belong on the street ball circuit
