Paul Pierce Wants Deron Williams At 100 Percent.


Jason Kidd already stated that Deron Williams may miss the start of the season.

Williams progression from his ankle injury is going slower than expected but that doesn’t concern Paul Pierce. The future hall of famer just doesn’t want Williams to rush back.

“Why come back when you’re only 75, 80 percent? Then you come back and you go back down to 50 percent,” Pierce said. “We’d rather see a guy take all the rest that he needs and get to 100 percent so he’s ready to go.”

Pierce understands the season is a marathon and not a sprint. Brooklyn feels if they’re 100 percent come playoff time, they have as good a shot as anybody to win a championship.
