Jason Williams offers his services — “These younger kids that are coming into the league need some advice from veterans”

White Chocolate is “bored to death” and wants to land a job with the Kings (or any NBA team.)

Former Sacramento Kings point guard Jason Williams walked on the borderline of streetball and professional basketball for almost his entire NBA career. And though "White Chocolate's" weren’t enough to make him an NBA All-Star, his passion for the game is undeniably on a Hall of Fame level. But don't be fooled by the elbow pass - Williams knows his fundamentals. 

Jason wants to work

Some players have been enjoying their retirement, and the idea of landing a job in an NBA organization is not on their bucket list. However, that wasn’t the case for Williams, who called it a career in 2011 after 13 years in the league.

According to Williams, he thought he found a new lease on life playing golf after officially retiring. However, he eventually realized that golf was no fun as it wasn’t as easy as pulling off a no-look pass. Over time, “White Chocolate” became “bored to death,” and he figured landing a role in his original sport was what he needed in his life.

Williams is open to joining any NBA organization, but of course, he also knows there’s no better way to do it than with his beloved Kings.

I’m bored to death with my life. I’d love to have something to do. I play golf a lot – golf’s hard, it’s frustrating sometimes,” Williams told BroBible in March. “I’d love to be a part of some organization and if it happened to be Sacramento, that’d be awesome…Anything to help Sacramento out the way they’ve helped me out. I’d love to get in the organization somehow…If that happens to be in Sacramento, that’d be great.

These kids need some mentoring

Like a true legend of the game, Williams never lost his love for basketball, and he feels like he could teach modern-day players a thing or two.

I just love the game so much,” he added. “I feel like these younger kids that are coming into the league need some advice from veterans that have worn their shoes before.

Undoubtedly, learning from Williams could be as fun as watching him play during his prime years in the league. However, it’s hard to tell whether or not the Kings organization also sees it that way.

Last summer, Williams’ former Kings co-starting backcourt Doug Christie was hired as one of Sacramento’s coaching staff. Like Williams, Christie also felt the itch to help his former team win. The question is, will the Kings also consider recruiting “White Chocolate” soon? Let’s wait and see.
