As we approach the NBA Draft—and you get sick of all the stories and time we’re devoting to it—one rehashed question is: who will look the most ridiculous when he crosses the stage to shake David Stern’s hand? Let’s not focus on that: let’s instead turn our attention to guys who weren’t a complete disaster in a suit. Because looking dapper is a must for draftees, and looking the most dapper is how to win draft night.
Deron Williams celebrated his 28th birthday today, just in time for teams to think he’s young enough to give him a max contract. And the Brooklyn Nets, in typical Mikhail Prokhorov, go-hard-or-go-home fashion, wanted to ensure that Deron knew his Brooklyn family remembered his special day.
He’s a self-aware guy, that Mikhail Prokhorov. How else to explain him uttering a line that so perfectly enhances his “mysterious badass not to be crossed under any circumstances” image than what he told reporters earlier today?
It must be rough to be a Nets fan nowadays. Having missed out on the chance to get Dwight Howard, the soon-to-be Brooklyn Nets are almost guaranteed to head into 2012-13 without Deron Williams, based on what D-Will said yesterday. Nobody wants to hear these words from their franchise player. At least he’s being honest, right?
For the next week or so we’re contractually obligated to compare any and all dunks to Blake Griffin‘s annihilation of Kendrick Perkins. In all honesty, nothing will come close to matching its greatness. Buuuuut, this Deron Williams dunk over Roy Hibbert at least deserves some attention.
There’s not much left for New Jersey Nets fans to cheer about these days. Not as the team entered Wednesday night’s game against the Philadelphia 76ers with a 5-13 record, with rumors regarding their franchise point guard, Deron Williams, wanting to play elsewhere come 2012-13.
Oh, NBA, how we’ve missed your astounding feats of athleticism/reliably steady stream of highlight reel material. And you know we have, NBA. How do we know that you know? Well, NBA, the clip after the jump will make it perfectly clear.
Have you ever wanted to see two NBA players attempt to play dodgeball? Well, now is your opportunity, because Deron Williams and Kyle Korver are teaming up to host their third-annual charity tournament.
Instead of Deron Williams welcoming them to Brooklyn, New Jersey Nets fans will now be greeted by the inviting mug of hip-hop mogul (and part owner) Jay-Z. Since Brooklyn’s his home, Jay obviously didn’t even bother removing his sunglasses. Hov!
