Donald Earl "Slick" Watts (born July 22 1951 in Rolling Fork, Mississippi, U.S.) is a New York City Streetball legend, who also played in the National Basketball Association in the 1970s. Watts popularized the wearing of the Headband by basketball players, a trend that has re-emerged in recent seasons.
Watts was drafted by the Seattle SuperSonics in 1973. In 1976 he led the NBA in total assists, assists per game, total steals, steals per game, and made NBA All-Defense First-Team. That same year, Watts also received the J. Walter Kennedy Citizenship Award for his outstanding service to the community.
Injuries curtailed Watts' career, however, as he only managed playing six NBA seasons before retiring. He played 4½ years with the Sonics, half a season with the New Orleans Jazz, and one season with the Houston Rockets.
