As a legendary ball-handler, Jason Williams’ popularity remains high to this day, more than 5 years after his final game in the NBA. Clips of his ostentatious style are rampant online and his fans continue to pump out new highlight reels on Youtube. So, it's no surprise that since the announcement that "White Chocolate" is returning to pro basketball in the BIG3, social media has done its fair share of celebrating.
After taking a brief hiatus from the NBA in 2008, Williams returned to play a few more years until retiring in 2011. While his fans have missed his exotic playing style – a style that was highly unorthodox in the NBA – they are excited to hear the return of the star in America's 3-on-3 league. The league will feature other big names from recent years past, but the prospect of seeing Williams’ once again will have highlight reel creators salivating. Unsurprisingly, he hasn’t lost his touch, as evidenced by recent Pro-Am circut clips. The BIG3's smaller court will also offer him plenty of chances to deliver more jaw-dropping passes and ankle-twisting crossovers for the highlight reels to immortalize.
So prepare yourself internet, you’re about to explode with more White Chocolate clips.
