Jason Williams, also known as "White Chocolate," was as exciting and creative as a point guard can be during his NBA career.

He had this unconventional street ball style of play that had never really been successfully deployed at the NBA level at that point. This made for some of the best highlights the league has ever seen.

One of his most impressive highlights was the first time we saw what became his patented behind-the-back elbow pass. He would fake a behind the back pass one way and then redirect the ball with his elbow the opposite direction, truly innovative and impressive stuff.

This was far from the only trick he had up his sleeve, but as you can see the defense was fooled pretty quickly on it, and how can you blame them? it was something that had never really been seen before in an NBA game.

Williams was a trail blazer in the NBA for a number of reasons, but passes like this might be the most fun to watch out of all of them.
