Deron Williams may eventually rue the day he decided to resign with the Brooklyn Nets. Williams has caught flak recently for the teams poor play, and he himself recently blamed his porous play on health and the Avery Johnson’s system.
Today Newark Star Ledger writer Dave D’Alessandro totally gave Deron the business in his column ripping him to shreds for allowing the team to fall apart.
D’Alessandro dropped the ultimate ether when he said Williams is ‘one evening gown shy of a diva.”
D’Alessandro: This has less to do with how you play — which is bad enough, you readily admit nowadays — than how you act, which is just one evening gown shy of a diva. And by now you may have sensed that everyone around you seems unwilling to share their candid observations with you.
We heard you blame your troubles on coach Avery Johnson, and pine for the days when that wise old crank in Utah ran stuff that was better suited to your individual skills.
Trust us: The national response was raucous laughter, because you were the guy responsible for getting Jerry Sloan to decide after 27 years that he’d rather live with his 30 tractors in McLeansboro, Ill., than put up with your insubordination.
Now you say Sloan was best for your career, not to mention the $100 million contract that validates it? That’s rich.
There was a ton more, but too much to write at this time.
Just believe D’Alessandro will be hearing from Williams press release team.
