RIP James Williams: NYC Basketball Player + Streetball Icon

Screen Shot 2014-07-25 at 11.00.19 AM

James “Stix” Williams, a NYC baller born-and-bred, died last night while playing at the NY Nike Pro City Tournament at Baruch College. While James never made it big in the college game, his name and his game were both well respected among those who played.

I never met the icon/veteran, but hopefully his family and friends can take some small comfort in the fact that he died doing what he loved most.

Pro City Tournament games will resume on Tuesday, with a moment of silence for James and a donation to help his family.
