The veteran began his career with the Giants and made his debut on 25 September 1994 against the Greater London Leopards. 

The 6ft5 Guard was quick to direct praise at his teammates over his career after he became the first player in BBL Championship history to make 1,000 three-point attempts on Friday against the Sheffield Sharks. 

Williams told the official Manchester Giants YouTube channel: “I achieved this as an individual but the guys that gave me the ball deserve recognition as well.

“It’s the physios and the doctors that have kept me going, the coaches that have played me sporadically and that I know my body that has kept me going for this long.

“I’m doing it because I have to [playing], if we had Ingus in then I wouldn’t be playing at all. Ingus is obviously out right now and I’m looking for a few more players to step in so I can step out. 

“My body just tells me every week to stop!”

The Giants travel to Plymouth on Sunday, still searching for their first win of the season.
