LIMITED EDITION OF 200
As you may or may not be aware, our dear friend and Seattle legend Slick Watts suffered a major health scare this year and has a long road ahead of him as he works toward recovery. 100% of the proceeds from these handmade ornaments will go directly to Slick to support him as he does.
Slick loved putting smiles on people's face's with his sense of humor and kindness - and of course that smile of his. This year, when you hang your ornament, please take a minute to wish Slick a full recovery.

Our friend Slick Watts has always embodied what the Sonics mean to Seattle. A point guard on the team from 1973-1978, Slick became an all-star and leader both on and off the court. He was the first player in the NBA to lead the league in assists and steals in one year and was awarded the NBA’s J. Walter Kennedy Citizenship Award for his service in the community in 1976.
Picking up his nickname when he was one of the first players to shave his head - unusual at the time - the man with the headband is a true Seattle legend. Our handblown ornament pays homage to him, his incredibly easy-going personality, and the way he famously wore his headband off-center.
- Approximately 3" diameter
- Handmade in our Seattle studio
- Ornament comes with real mini headband
