PLAYERS: Deron Williams
TEAMS: Brooklyn Nets
If the haters were talking yesterday, D-Will shut them right up   If Deron Williams has not directly addressed the many criticisms he has heard since heading to the Nets from the Jazz a few years ago, then he is probably lying. Countless writers, beat reporters, and fans alike have been incessant in ripping the franchise point guard for a perceived "letting-up" that Deron was blasted for as he made the tough transition from playoff team (Jazz) to a former cellar-dweller (Nets). In the 67 games D-Will played in New Jersey with the Nets right after the trade (in the 2010-11 and 2011-12 seasons), he shot just under 40 percent from the field, a far contrast from the brisk 44 percent he has put up so far in Brooklyn. Also, Deron's turnovers have cut drastically from last year to this one. A demonstration of this: He committed 219 turnovers in 55 games (1999 minutes) in the 2011-12 campaign. This season, 218 in 78 games (2842 minutes). 843 more minu...

Back home, Bulls will try again to slow Williams

There were two versions of Deron Williams this season, and the Chicago Bulls know they need to be playing the first one. Slumping before the All-Star break and surging after, Williams turned the Brooklyn Nets into a powerful offense down the stretch with precision play that continued right through Game 1 of the playoffs. The Bulls probably can't beat the Nets four times if...

Williams struggles, Nets fall 90-82 in Game 2

Jerry Stackhouse Sings Game 1 National Anthem

Nets’ Jerry Stackhouse kicked off the first ever playoff game at Barclays Center in Brooklyn by singing the National Anthem prior to Game 1 of the Bulls-Nets playoff series.

Fashion Glance: Jay Z courtside for Nets vs. Bulls

Jay Z may have sold his minority interest in the Nets but he told you in “Open Letter” that he was keeping the courtside seats. Hov was in the building for the first playoff game of the Brooklyn Nets era. Of course Jay had to stunt a little fashion realness for the masses, rocking a black Rich Kids “HOOLIGANS” sweatshirt and black jeans. His look was finished off with a Just...

Video: Brooklyn Nets C.J. Watson hits the walk-off three-pointer

The Brooklyn Nets C.J. Watson accounted for 10 of the teams 82 points in their Game 2 loss to the Chicago Bulls on Monday. Three of them happened to be prettier than the rest as Watson nailed a three point buzzer beater to end the first half. The story of the evening was Joakim Noah’s courageous performance despite his foot injury. Noah chipped in nine fourth quarter points...

Kris Humphries Got $0 From Divorce Settlement, Says He Felt Sorry For Kim Kardashian

The Hump could have ended this marriage a long time ago, but he dragged it out trying to squeeze some money out of Kim Kardashian, when he really didn’t have a leg to stand on. In the end, The Hump got no cash and bunch of legal fees for his troubles, but he is trying to pass off that the real reason he gave Kimmy the divorce was because he felt bad for her. According to reports...

Kris Humphries Divorced Kim Kardashian Out of the Goodness of his Heart? What?

If it wasn't for my wife there is no way in he** I would care about this story, but since any and all Kardashian shows are on in our house more than I care to admit I am probably one of the few non-Nets/Kardashian fans that finds this interesting. The news broke a few days ago that the divorce proceeding from he** was finally over. What was puzzling about it though was...

Quick hits from the NBA playoffs: Day 3

Chicago Bulls/Brooklyn Nets: Game 2 - The line for this game was Brooklyn -5. The line for Game 1 was Brooklyn -4.5. The beat down the Nets gave the Bulls in the first game was only enough to move the line a half a point. I guess that shows you that Vegas thinks the Bulls will have a much better showing. I have $10 that disagrees. - If Brook Lopez can make his outside...

Derrick Rose could learn a thing or two about toughness from Joakim Noah

Well the Chicago Bulls just got their asses handed to them by Deron Williams and the Brooklyn Nets.  It was ugly…really, ugly.  The final score of 106-89 really doesn’t do the blowout justice.  At the end of the 1st half, the Bulls trailed 60-35.  For the most part, the Bulls were lifeless all game. One [...]
