Jason Williams aka White Chocolate announces retirement

Quote:
Los Angeles Clippers point guard Jason Williams announced his retirement from the NBA today, ending his 10-year career. Signed by the Clippers as a free agent on August 7, 2008, Williams did not appear in a game for Los Angeles.

Williams enjoyed a 10-year NBA career that saw him take the court for three different teams, (Sacramento 1998-2001, Memphis 2001-2005 and Miami 2005-2008). A member of the NBA Champion Miami Heat in 2005-06, Williams started all 23 playoff games and averaged 9.3 points and 3.9 assists for Miami in helping to win the organization’s first title.

The West Virginia native leaves the NBA with career averages of 11.4 points, 6.3 assists, 1.3 steals, 2.4 rebounds while shooting 39.6 percent from the floor, 32.5 percent from three-point range and 81.6 percent from the foul line in 679 total games. Williams finishes his career with a 2.77 assist-to-turnover ratio.

He enjoyed his best statistical season in 2001-02 when he averaged 14.8 points, 8.0 assists and 3.0 rebounds for Memphis. In his four seasons with the Grizzlies, Williams became the club’s all-time assists leader and all-time leader in three-point field goals attempted in addition to being named the NBA’s Most Improved Player for the 2002-03 season by Sports Illustrated when he finished tied for second in the league in assists per game.

I didn't know it was even legal to sign a midseason contract and then retire a month and a half later before you play a game of it. Clippers get the bad luck as usual. RIP White Chocolate.

When VC was all the rage, I was buying tons of basketball cards to get his rookies.

I got TONS of awesome JW cards. I have been waiting for him to NOT suck to cash them in. Guess I'll put them in my spokes now.

He'll forever be known for doing that pass in the Rookie-Sophmore game to Raef LaFrentz. Hell, I remember when he and Chris Webber were being considered the next Stockton and Malone. Never happened.

In other news, I'm beginning to feel old right now with Shareef retiring and Jason Williams now too. Who's next?

HeeHee. I can fondly remember the panic I first felt upon realizing how much my sense of time was accelerating. Remember when a summer seemed like a lifetime? Soon a decade will seem like a summer. Taking long trips loaded with activity helps in spurts. Watching rock idols die and sports figures retire definitely doesn't help.

Gotta just ride the next wave of guys named after chocolate, or whatever.
