We hear a lot about the youth basketball exploits of LeBron James Jr. and Shareef O’Neal, but you know what’s even more exciting than those offspring of all-time great? Jaxon Williams, a.k.a. White Chocolate Junior!

Jaxon is the 13-year-old son of Jason Williams, the original White Chocolate, who became a fan favorite during his 12-year NBA career thanks to his dazzling passes and colorful personality (not to mention similarly colorful skin). The elder Williams famously had “white boy” tattooed on his knuckles.

Jason averaged 10.5 points and 5.9 assists in his career, while playing for the Kings, Grizzlies, Heat and Magic. He was the starting point guard on Miami’s 2006 NBA championship team.

Here are some of White Chocolate’s greatest hits, to compare with Jr.’s.

Jaxon could probably work on his shooting form, but he seems to have inherited pop’s passing ability. At age 13, he does not have any visible tattoos, but he’s got some time.
