The 2014-2015 season is just around the corner. As the pre-season just got under way, I will take a look at one Nets player that has cause for concern. Deron Williams is back but does this mean we will see the Deron we all been wanting to see (can I say since his first full year in New Jersey?).
As Deron himself prays his ankle and surgeries hold up through an entire 82 game season and late playoff pus. The big question is… is there a way to keep D-Will on the court for at least 70 plus games? While no one knows for sure I can suggest this. The surgery Deron had a both ankles will sure help his longevity on and off the court. Not to mention his stamina so he can keep up his daily work outs. With the team heading into the season with most of the roster intact from last season, is it safe to say that the players know what they expect from Deron and vise versa? But does this mean Deron will be healthy enough to live up to this expectation?
A lot of questions remain unanswered at least for now. But before Williams was hurt at least, noticeable by fans watching. He put up solid numbers. In his first full season in New Jersey he posted 21 PPG 8.7 APG and 3 RPG but only appeared in 55 games that season. Before his time with the Nets, Deron in Utah, had three straight season of nearly 20 PPG but had three seasons in a row of double digit APG averages. It is safe to say every Nets fan alike will love to see that Utah Deron Williams in Brooklyn this season. Last year Deron averaged his lowest PPG since his rookie season in the league. His RPG where in the same spot as well with 2.6 RPG. Lets hope we all seen the worst of Deron Williams. You could only go up form here; Right? One thing is for sure, Deron will echo this to himself this year. Where there is a will there is a way.
