LeBron James Gets Hyped After Watching Sick Jason Williams Mixtape

If LeBron James had his way, he would have played alongside one of the most creative passers in NBA history.

The Los Angeles Lakers star revealed on his Instagram story that he wished he had the opportunity to be on the receiving end of a pass from Jason Williams.

Known as “White Chocolate,” Williams took the league by storm with an assortment of dimes that reminded many of the talent displayed by Pete Maravich, another player who elevated passing to an art form.

Williams never made an All-Star team during his career, but the 6-foot-1 point guard made the 1998-99 All-Rookie First Team while playing for the Sacramento Kings.

James would have certainly benefited from playing with Williams just as five-time All-Star Chris Webber did. It’s no coincidence that Webber recorded two of his highest scoring seasons while playing with Williams on the Kings.

During his first three seasons in Sacramento, Williams averaged 11.3 points, 2.7 rebounds, 6.3 assists and 1.5 steals per game.

Though his assists weren’t as high as those of some of the league’s best passing guards, the way he controlled the basketball and his penchant for delivering no-look, one-handed or thread-the-needle assists were a sight to behold.

A James-Williams pairing would have been a dream come true for James, and his fans can only wonder how incredible that partnership would have been.

Former Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade, one of James’ closest friends, played three seasons with Williams in South Beach. Williams was no longer the passing wizard that he used to be by the time he played with the Heat, but he won his first and only title with them in 2006.
