1 » Former Florida Gators point guard Jason Williams, a 12-year NBA veteran, retired during the 2010-11 season but is still displaying his signature flare in exhibition games. Competing in China during a USA Legends Tour game this month, Williams looked like the young “White Chocolate” when he successfully made a fastbreak elbow pass for a dunk, just like he did during the 2000 NBA Rookie Game.

2 » Competing in the Steve Nash Foundation Showdown in Chinatown on June 26 in New York, NY – a celebrity soccer event that benefits underserved children affected by poverty, illness, abuse or neglect – Chicago Bulls center Joakim Noah scored the game-winning goal and celebrated in typical fashion. (Houston Rockets forward Chandler Parsons will participate in the west coast version of the game on Sunday, July 14.) Speaking of Noah, he and Atlanta Hawks forward Al Horford will participate in the 2013 Basketball Without Borders program this summer. Noah, Horford and six other players will visit Johannesburg, South Africa, from Aug. 29 to Sept. 1 to coach and lead life seminars.

3 » Former Gators jumper Christian Taylor, who won gold in the triple jump during the 2012 London Olympics, will be featured in an upcoming documentary (and numerous webisodes) called “Four Years” that will follow him for the next four years as he attempts to qualify and defend his title in the 2016 Rio Olympics. Check out this trailer.

4 » Florida 2014 four-star commitments quarterback Will Grier (Davidson, NC) and cornerback Duke Dawson (Cross City, FL) discuss their performances at Nike’s annual event, The Opening, in Eugene, OR.

    Love Jason Williams. Loved the way he dogged UK back in the day. Love Joakim Noah. Love the way Grier and Dawson handled themselves. Seemed to be incredibly mature and poised for high schoolers.

    Man, it’s great to be a Florida Gator!!
