Former Mavericks coach Avery Johnson has finally said exactly what fans of his current team, the Nets have been thinking for sometime now. The Mavericks are a THREAT!
Yes, as the defending champs take on our ten win team. Dallas owner Mark Cuban will surely be dreaming of the day, when he can have Deron Williams in a Mavericks uniform, throwing alley-oop passes to Dwight Howard or kicking it out to Dirk Nowitzki for an open 3-pointer.
Now, some people say that “You can’t go home again!” but for players like Stephon Marbury coming back to their old stomping grounds was a dream come true that quickly became a nightmare.
Yet, this cautionary tale hasn’t stopped the billionaire from wanting to entice the All-Star guard to take a chance on coming home and playing with a good team that can compete for another title in the forseeable future. That’s a horrifying scenario that Nets fans would dread for years to come.
Still, the Nets have a great chance to keep their top gun because of their ability to pay D-Will the most money in free agency, the opportunity to play with Dwight Howard next September and the move to the Barclays Center in Brooklyn are all very intriguing propositions for Deron Williams to consider as the Nets play out their final season in New Jersey.
Eventhough, the Nets have a disadvantage against the reigning champs tonight at the American Airlines Arena. Coach Avery Johnson and Nets management will have to display a “championship” effort in order to keep D-Will from going back to the big state of Texas.
