    Deron Williams: Redemption or Moderation?

    I use to love Deron Williams and felt, at one time, he was arguably the best PG in the league. Since going to NJ/Brooklyn, he has steadily declined from solid superstar to solid PG. I sincerely hope he is able to return to at least an 18/3/8 with solid offensive efficiency numbers. Could you envision Deron getting healthy enough to pull these types of numbers again or do you think he will be a solid PG in between an okay player and an all star caliber player?

    (I feel I always have to ask fans of teams to NOT be disrespectful to other fan bases and actually stick to the thread topic, please!)

    Nope not gonna happen. Deron has the same problem Baron Davis did. All there problems can be traced back to always being to heavy. Which is what leads to all their physical problems.

    Has he actually been that bad? I don't watch the Nets but his stat line seems decent and his shooting percentages are above average. He's not worth his contract, but he's not a bad player.

    Not true, when cp3 was in new orleans, Nash was in phoenix and dwill in utah, you could pick either one of those three (though most people argued about cp3 and Nash) but dwill was so important to that team. I don't know if he can come back, watching in last years playoffs Shaun Livingston looked at least 10x better. Injuries are a *****. Maybe a new coach can get him into the right mentality but I doubt it

    I get your point but please don't ever compare someone like Deron to B-Diddy. Baron was more athletic, more skilled, could play in the post, and was an actual scoring threat. Deron is complete trash. The guy can't finish or hit a shot. Deron was just a product of Sloan's system and seriously one of the most overrated PG's ever.

    Stick the fork in that turkey.......he's done yet he'll still collect a hefty paycheck. Let's see if he comes into training camp pushing 260 lbs.

    Why would any player who plays the point guard position ever just let their body go to the point they are overweight and end up killing their knees and ankles is beyond me.

    D-Will considered one of the big names in the league - this is what makes him an average PG. He doesn;t quite live up to his name. If he was just a regular name then he would be a solid PG. But spite of all this it doesn't take away from the fact that he is a chucker. It's do or die w/ him. He can either shoot you into or out of a game. He needs a coach that can discipline him and put him in line. He can't run a much out there - it just doesn't bode well.

    Lionel Hollins is his coach.

    This is a guy that couldn't handle Avery Johnson.

    I'd say with no one to pass to and nothing to play for... He 's right in the middle of his contract with 2 increases on the way...

    Joe Johnson also has another 45 mil to collect over the next two... KG is playing for 12 mil with a no trade clause in year 19 at 38 years old going on 39...
    The nets aren't looking to great

    Deron has merely been serviceable since joining the nets. Flaws every year.

    In year 1 (half a year only), he got tons of assists, but his shooting fell to the 30's and his turnovers were sky high.

    In year 2, his turnovers improved but his assists also fell back done to 8 or so . Shooting percentage was still low.

    Year 3 was pretty much year two, but with tons of injuries. His numbers went down.

    Year 4...Shaun Livingston was the starter. Deron was just putrid, though he got a bit better towards the end.


    Still, he just doesn't have it anymore. He doesn't have a consistent shot. He can't drive. He doesn't have many moves or mobility.

    And doesn't he still have

    2014-15
    2015-16
    2016-17

    .???

    I know joe Johnson has 2 years and think deron has m1 more year.

    -HORRIBLE management of players and motivation
