Deron Williams: ‘I’m Not Helping This Team at All’

As the Nets’ final season in New Jersey continues to swirl down the drain — they’ve lost four straight, after having won the season-opener — Deron Williams’ frustration builds. Reports the NY Daily News: “Deron Williams sat in front of his locker, visibly frustrated. Even the bucket of ice water surrounding his feet couldn’t cool the stare after a fourth straight loss. ‘Definitely frustrated. Frustrated with how I’m playing. I’m not helping this team at all. Hoping this gets turned around and we get some wins,’ he said, adding, ‘it’s our fourth in a row. It just keeps building up. I’m playing bad.’ The Nets (1-4) were pummeled by jump shots in the fourth quarter Sunday and lost to the Cavaliers, 98-82, giving fans little hope that 2012 will be any better than the last five years. Williams scored just 16 points on 6-of-16 from the field with five assists and four rebounds, as the Nets continued their streak of failing to shoot over 40 percent.”

    Weren’t people saying he would have an advantage because he played games during the lockout?

    The title of this post should be “Nets want new elite point guard”.

  • robb

    He struggled during his first games in Europe too. I’m sure he’ll find his rhythm eventually.

    D-Will to ORL to play w/ Superman

  • Aizen

    At least D-Will admitted his problem. Most time players can be in denial.

  • logues

    so he’s playing bad on purpose and talking negative about himself so he can get traded and get the heck out of jersey?

  • misso

    @Jp that’s what I’m talkin bout. Ima magic fan & that’s what I’ve been hoping happens that way we have Dwill & that will convince D12 to stay

  • Magic Fan

    Damn right… come to da O and win

  • Showfan12

    Yes Magic off to a great start, and if we get deron williams, the sky is the limit!

  • neaorin

    I’d sure like to know why Avery Johnson is trying to turn him into a SG.

    @Max yea I was saying it. NBA really is a whole ‘nother animal.

  • Holiday

    Tank, get a top pick, lure Dwight in and takeover New York next year like the Clippers should be doing in LA!

  • Allenp

    He is pressing. He needs to relax. He will figure it out.

  • riggs

    @Natty: wow dude, did deron sleep with your mother and didnt call her after or something?

  • galagu

    yo mom no like naughty dreds

  • stylez g. write

    Coincidentally,in the coaches’ post game conference,Avery Johnson remarked,”Deron Williams is not helping this team at all……”

  • Lan

    Keep your head up Deron! Every player will hit a wall sometime.


    Stop Bi*chin’ about it. Bi*ched in Utah , Bi*chin in N.J. Didn’t he know he was commin’ here. Guess what he gonna do when he goes to anotha team & they loose a couple. I like his game but he a Bi*ch !!

  • Ldub20

    cosign with riggs. DWIll is top 5 pg in the league. I dont know whats not to like about him.
    Dwill along with Rose and Cp3 let their play do the talking. And his stats are just as good as chris pauls, but if im not mistaken he can score just a bit better because of his size. and he plays a more d than cp3. im confused as to why NATTY is doggin Dwill like that. Dwill, will get it together and when he does, he might just light up his Bulls squad for 30!

  • AD

    @natty do you rub drose’s back after 30 point games

  • dapluva

    Jeff Teague better than deron williams

  • http://termwiki.com/Home rich

    I feel bad for deron..he’s got Damion James and Shelden williams starting with him some nights

  • smeetah

    dude’s just frustrated cos his team isn’t a contender and he doesn’t have the pieces that the other franchises do, and he’s always flying below the radar, totally understandable. everyone knows he’s a beast from hell, best crossover in the league. these dudes get a bit older and the initial shine of playing in the league wears off and they get a sniff that maybe they might not ever really contend for a chip, and that nothing else really matters. go talk to your team psych Deron, get it off your chest.

  • suck it

    I got a hunch mitch was plannin on nets failure when he traded lamar…. come trade deadline: deron wants out…we got 8mil and any player nets want(off the bench)

  • nic h

    he’s never been one of my favorite players but he is in danger of wasting his peak years in a bad setup, would be good to see him playing for the knicks next year
