Deron Williams is feeling like Kendrick Lamar these days.
The Texas native has had his spirit renewed in Brooklyn with the acquisitions of Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett. Williams told ESPN New York that he’s rolling with Paul Pierce’s assertion that the Nets are ready to take ownership of the big apple.
“That’s my teammate so I’m with him. Of course we want to run New York. The Knicks are our rival. I don’t get into too much of the talking. We’ll decide all that on the court. We have four games to play against them and then the playoffs so I’ll let Paul do the talking and I’ll just go out there and play.”
“Our time is now,” he said. “We have a short window to try to win.”
