John Lee Williamson (November 10, 1951(1951-11-10) – November 30, 1996) was an American basketball player.

Williamson played high school basketball at Wilbur Cross High School in New Haven, Connecticut and played college basketball at New Mexico State University. He was a 6'2" guard. Williamson was drafted by the Atlanta Hawks in the 6th round (10th pick) of the 1973 NBA Draft but had other plans.

While at Wilbur Cross High School, Williamson played on the Connecticut state champion teams of 1966-67, 1967-68 and was runner up to crosstown rival Hillhouse in 1968-69, losing 76-71 in the final. For his senior (1969-70) year, Williamson led the nation in scoring with a gaudy 38.7 points per game average. His team was upset in a semi-final match that is still talked about, 105-103 to Bridgeport Central. Cross had destroyed Central in the 1968 title game by 40 points in a 123-82 pasting of a heralded Bridgeport, CT squad that boasted it would defeat the Governors.
