Williams was drafted third overall by the Utah Jazz in the 2005 NBA Draft.
He was named to the NBA All-Rookie First Team.
Williams was the starting point guard for the Jazz the next season, and they started off with a 12-1 record, which is the best in team history.
He led the Jazz to the playoffs in 2007, ending a three-year playoff drought. The Jazz ended up beating the Houston Rockets in seven games. He scored in double-figures in each of the seven games of the series.
They won the next series against the Golden State Warriors, but ended up losing in the conference finals to the San Antonio Spurs.
In the 2008-09 season, Williams became the second active player to records 20 assists in four or more games in their career.
In 2010, he was selected as a reserve for his first NBA All-Star Game.
In the 2010 playoffs, Williams played with an injured wrist and ankle, and the Jazz were also without key players Mehmet Okur and Andrei Kirilenko. He became the first player in NBA history to record at least 20 points and 10 assists in five straight games in a playoff series.
I do think he is the best point guard in the game, even though he took a terrible shot in these past playoffs. If he had made it, it could have extended the Jazz' playoff run.
