In his long and illustrious career, Shaquille O’Neal played with a ton of all-star players and quite a few future HOF’s. With some of them, he reached significant success, but with some, they didn’t find the right recipe to win. When it comes to having fun playing with these players out of all of them that were Shaq’s teammates, he mentioned one name that might sound as a surprise at first.
While hosting on the show Area 21, Shaq said out of all the players Jason Williams, also known as White Chocolate, was a lot of fun. The main reason for this is his tremendous ability to deliver the ball at the right time in the right place. Shaq and Williams played together for the Miami Heat and even won a championship together back in 2006 when they beat the Dallas Mavericks in a 6-game series.
There was a lot of hype surrounding Jason Williams when he entered the NBA, because of his exceptional handles and ability to make any pass you can imagine. After spending a few years with the Sacramento Kings and Memphis Grizzlies, Williams was signed by the Heat as a starting point guard.
“A guy that I have to mention that I really had fun playing with was White Chocolate in Miami. White Chocolate was nice to play with cause I could have put my hand, and the ball would be there every time. Shootout to White Chocolate. Great player and underappreciated.”
