7.) 2000- Jason Williams- Nike Air Force Authority- Rookie Challenge (Elbow pass)
One of the most exciting players of the early 00s was White Chocolate. Williams’ handle, flair for the extravagant pass and creative play made him a fan favorite. I still find myself watching Youtube montages weekly in astonishment of his court vision. Rumors began circulating around the All Star break that Jason Williams had this elbow pass. I had no idea what it was going to look like or what it even was… until the Rookie Game when he came down on a 4 on 2, went behind his back with his left off the right elbow to a trailing Raef LaFrentz… who blew the finish. Thanks Raef. Sixteen years later we still talk about the elbow pass.
