    Deron Williams: I'm a system player

    http://espn.go.com/new-york/nba/stor...rade-utah-jazz


    "I was injured the first year (and needed season-ending right wrist surgery)," Williams said Monday, a day before the Nets host the Jazz at Barclays Center. "I've really had injuries while I've been with (the Nets) the whole time. And didn't have the talent around me that I did (with the Jazz).


    "And that system (in Utah) was a great system for my style of play. I'm a system player, and I loved Coach (Jerry) Sloan's system. I loved the offense there. We could've been a really good team. We just weren't that good defensively as a group."


    "Talent wins games, but teamwork and intelligence wins championships."
    - Michael Jordan

    Thanks MJ-Bulls for the picture.

    I think this is kinda obvious. It hasn't just been the injuries, as many Nets fans want to say it is. He is not meant for a system that is asking him to take a lot of long jumpers, and not move the ball quickly. His production fell the moment Sloan retired.

    If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.

    Steve Nash is a system player too. Are not all point guards system players?

    I'm Tired of hearing about "system pgs", like it's an excuse.

    Any pg in the NBA would show improved stats in these fast paced wide open systems. Those systems are built for guards to flourish.

    I been saying it.

    I am glad he named dropped Sloan. Whether the rumors are true that he got Sloan fired (i think it's bs) Deron needs to acknowledge how much Sloan did for him. Avery's system is terrible for PGs

    Kidd got to Dallas and immediately hated it. Devin Harris gets to NJ and explodes. Deron gets to Avery and starts plying like crap.

    Avery's system caters to Brook Lopez's abilities and all the guards just run isos all day. It's ridiculous. Wallace has struggled, JJ has struggled, CJ has struggled, MarShon has struggled, Deron has struggled. Avery is a terrible offensive coach.

    Has done a great job with the defense though given how little he has to work with.

    What a dream it would be to have a Deron/Sloan reunion. Sloan is a rancher and would never move to Brooklyn at 70ys old.

    Sig bet with FriedTofuz or whatever his name is (I'm on my phone so it's too tedious to go find his exact name) that if the Nets lose to the Raptors I will delete my account and if the Raptors lose he will delete his (lol Raptors fans are so cute).

    Happens when you read too much internet bs. Deron has never said a bad thing about Sloan and always praises him.

    Next time you talk to Sloan on the phone can you tell him I said hi since you know so much about him. And for the record no Net lives in Brooklyn...he could live in NJ,NY,CT
