Jason Williams & The Elbow Pass


Throughout his NBA career, Jason Williams, often known as "White Chocolate," was as dynamic and inventive as a point guard can be. He played in a peculiar street ball style that, up until that moment, had never truly been applied successfully at the NBA level. Some of the finest highlights the league has ever seen resulted from this. The first time we witnessed what would eventually become his signature behind-the-back elbow pass was one of his most spectacular moments. He would fake a behind-the-back pass in one direction while rerouting the ball with his elbow in the other—truly creative and remarkable play.

In an NBA game, it was something that had never actually been witnessed before.

Williams was an NBA pioneer for many reasons, but this pass might be the most entertaining to watch of any of them.
