Mexico has a great culture, said Jason Williams

The former NBA player visited one of the most iconic points of the CDMX, Xochimilco, where he got on a trajinera (a boat for water ride with music, party, food, drink).

As part of the activities of the NBA Mexico City Global Games, Williams visited the iconic lake of Mexico City with Spencer Haywood, where he soaked up the Aztec culture.

"It's a beautiful place, I feel very blessed for the opportunity to be here and know the culture they have, it's a pleasant experience"

"I hope the fans come to support as much as possible to the NBA, it's a great organization with a large fan base, it will be a great experience," said the 43-year-old former basketball player. "I had no idea coming, but I arrived and saw that the NBA is global, I did not expect less."

White Chocolate, as he was called thanks to his versatility in the staves, played for Sacramento Kings, Memphis Grizzlies, Miami Heat and Orlando Magic, but it was with the Florida team, along with Dwayne Wade and Shaquille O'Neal that he conquered his only championship ring.

"My best moment was when I won the championship in 2006 with the Miami Heat," he recalled. "I definitely would have liked to play in this era but I'm grateful for my era."
