Deron Williams says two years of constant playing may have worn him down
 

 



Deron Williams was unimpressive Monday against Tony Parker and the Spurs — he was 3-of-11 shooting, finishing with eight points, one a.ssist and he was a -35 in a game the Nets lost by 31.

It really fits with a season where he is shooting 39.9 percent overall, 30 percent from three and has a PER five points below his last season in Utah.

What is going on? Williams has a series of nagging injuries (particularly a wrist injury) and GM Billy King suggested that playing two straight years — going to Turkey during the lockout then winning gold with Team USA at the London Olympics this summer — has taken its toll on his body. Williams basically agreed with that talking to the New York Daily News.

“I didn’t take any time off. After last season, I never stopped working out. After the Olympics, the day I got back I worked out the next morning,” Williams said. “I thought it was the best thing to do, and now looking back, it probably would have been smarter to take some time off and get a little bit of rest, especially on my legs, and my ankles in general.

“I took a lot of pounding over the last year because even though we had a shortened season, I was over in Istanbul, so I haven’t had a break since before then. I felt like I could handle it, and at the time I thought it was the right thing to do. I didn’t want to get out of shape. I wanted to just keep going.”

To which a lot of Nets fans, as well as Nets ownership, would say “tough cookies.” (Well, they wouldn’t say cookies but I can’t print the word they would use.)

He chose to play in Turkey and with Team USA. He has a brand new max deal. While maybe the Nets should try and find a way to get him a little rest, Williams is lying in a bed he made.

The Nets are a long ways from good and no coach — not Phil Jackson, not anyone — turns this roster into a contender. But the first job for the new coach, whoever it ends up being, is to get Williams turned around. Good luck with that.

First he was tired from the Olympics, then he was rusty, then it was the offensive scheme, then it was he was systems player, now its two years back to back playing. Its obvious that Deron does not know what the problem is.. Because it's a new excuse every time he says something.. In the heart of Brooklyn, that NY media got this n*gga sweating and crushing under the pressure after every loss.

I hope he gets back to playing like his old self. He was fun too watch in Utah..

is he the only one that hasn't took a break? I think not.

you have to keep doing physical activity in order to stay in shape year round, that's for any athlete.

kinda sucks when your scapegoat is gone huh?

Sloan is from the same cloth of Pops,Coach K, and Thibs.. They run their teams like well oiled machines.. each of those coaches can get virtually any player and they'll likely commit and play some of their best most productive ball they've played. mostly due to practice, preparation, and expectations as a professional. And I agree with you, he has looked out of shape and lackadaisical since joining the Nets.. He doesn't have Sloan in his ear expecting 100% anymore. People forget that Dwill was benched at the start of his rookie year for atleast half the season because Sloan didn't think DWill was ready and didn't play with enough intensity.. Dwill changed that and went on to be a all-star. they need a coach who's not afraid to get in Dwill face and hold him accountable. Because obviously without Sloan,Dwil does not hold himself accountable, just continues to come up with new excuses.
