From J-Stock to J-Will, why not? With the exception of maybe Pistol Pete, RIP, what white boy has better handles than Jason Williams? Steve Nash, Stockton? I don’t think so but it’s certainly up for debate. Picked 7th in the 1998 NBA Draft, Williams played a crucial role for a Sacramento Kings team that had plenty of talent in C-Webb, Peja, and an old but still productive Vlade Divac. J-Will helped lead the Kings to a playoff birth and made Sactown a regular on the highlight reels. A few interesting facts about J-Will… 1) He played high school hoops with Randy Moss. 2) He holds the record for most assists in a game at UF (17). 3) Williams’ #55 jersey was among the top 5 sellers in his rookie season. 4) He won a championship in 2006 with Miami.
