A Point Well Taken: Williams Wastes No Time Making Himself At Home In The NBA
By Martin McNeal Bee Staff Writer
MINNEAPOLIS -- In the land of the NBA, where potent point guards roam, Kings rookie sensation Jason "Highlight" Williams has been tested early by some the league's premier playmakers.
In his first two weeks as a professional, he's held his own and even dazzled at times against the likes of Phoenix's Jason Kidd, Utah's John Stockton and Seattle's Gary Payton, a trio perennially mentioned as the game's best point guards.
Against such a battery, Williams thrived. Armed with an array of behind-the-back passes, no-look lobs and crossover fakes, his game is a TV highlight waiting to happen.
Indeed, few players have emerged as quickly as Williams, whose style, flair and on-court confidence have played an integral role in the Kings' quick start.
