Don’t look now, but Jason Kidd has quit wearing ties, and the Brooklyn Nets are winning games.
Deron Williams returned to the Nets for a Martin Luther King day matinee, and according to the New York Post, Williams went to Kidd with a brilliant idea.
Williams decided he didn’t want to disrupt the teams chemistry, and had Kidd bring him off the bench. The Nets went on to smoke the Knicks 103-80.
D-Will had 13 points in 27 minutes, and says he doesn’t mind coming off the pine.
“We’ve been play so well with that lineup, why shake things up?” Williams said. “I don’t care if I come off the bench or start or whatever.
“With the way Joe [Johnson’s] been playing first quarters, first halves, I don’t want to disrupt that.”
Williams returned after missing the last five games following his latest sprain to his left ankle, and after receiving cortisone shots and platelet rich plasma injections in both ankles.
