Deron Williams Doesn’t Like the New Jersey Nets’ Arena

by January 23, 2012

Deron Williams is not a fan of the Prudential Center at all, and he can’t wait to move into a new gym next season. From the NY Post: “No one is happier that the Nets are moving to Brooklyn than Deron Williams. ‘I don’t like this arena one bit,’ Williams said after the Nets lost to the Thunder, 84-74, last night at Prudential Center. ‘But, it’s a good thing it’s not our arena next year. Even last year, it just doesn’t feel like our home arena. I don’t know why. It just doesn’t feel like it.’ Williams, a potential free agent whom the Nets hope to retain as the headliner for their new digs at Barclays Center next season, cited the sight lines inside Prudential Center, not built strictly for basketball, as part of the issue. ‘It just doesn’t have good vision,’ Williams said. ‘The depth perception’s not there.'”
