Deron Williams made a promise to his new big man, and Al Jefferson tells the Salt Lake Tribune that he bought into it immediately: “D Williams is Batman. He’s Batman. He’s the captain. He’s the guy, you know. And I’m Robin. So I’m willing to do whatever. I’m not worried about jelling with him. I’m going to adjust to him. Whatever he needs me to do is going to be done. Because the first thing he said to me when I talked to him is, ‘I’m going to make you an All-Star.’ And when he said that to me, I believed him. He wasn’t just talking. He wasn’t just saying it because it sounded good. He really means that. And I’m not going to do nothing to mess that up. Whatever he wants me to do. I know he told me one thing, he was joking. He said I don’t really dunk a lot in the games. And so [he said], ‘If I throw you a sweet pass, you’re going to have to dunk it.’ And if he wants me to start dunking, I’ll dunk it.”
