When played for the Utah Jazz, there was a legitimate debate about whether you’d rather have him or as your point guard of the future. Williams was a big point guard with one of the nastiest crossovers the league has seen. He could shoot from outside, post you up and he could make your best perimeter scorer work for everything he got. Then he was traded to the and was befallen by ankle injuries that took away his ability to be a star in this dmits he’s long been a Chelsea fan.The fullback has revealed he was supporting Chelsea when back in Brazil as they won the Champions League in 2012.He recalled to the club’s website: “In Brazil we would watch the Champions League all the time, get toleague.
Maybe we’re getting that star quality D-Will back though? that his ankles finally feel good again. He may actually get to practice, participate in training camp, and do the proper training to put him back in the star tier of players this season, which would be a huge boost to the Nets and their game plan.
Three months after undergoing surgery on both ankles, Deron Williams feels like a new man.
“[Before the surgery], I was just walking around and my ankles would swell up,” Williams said Monday at his charity dodgeball tournament in Manhattan, which benefited his Point of Hope Foundation. “Any time that happens, that’s bad.
“[Now] they feel good. I’ve been working out hard everyhief Guillermo Amor is confident Lionel Messi is happy at the club.Messi produced all three assists for Barca’s 3-2 win at Real Betis on Sunday – just days after his public clash with football chief Eric Abidal.Amor was asked about the Argentine at t day, getting ready to go.”
“Last year was tough,” he said. “I missed all of training camp, most of the preseason. … I practiced one time, played nine minutes in a preseason game and was thrown into the fire at 60 or 70 percent.
“It’s definitely different this year, and I think it’s great. I’ll be able to participate in training camp. I’ll be practicing with the guys right now, and I’m able to play with the guys before training camp, which is great.”
It’s not like Williams has been bad since joining the Nets, either. He’s been pretty good. But he hasn’t had the impact that would justify calling him a star and you could argue that the five-year, $98.7 million may have been a mistake considering what he’s shown so far in that contract. His skills haven’t diminished though, just his explosiveness and ability to stay on the court.
Williams missed 24 games total in his first five seasons in the . He’s missed 50 games over his past four seasons. His shooting percentage has dropped by almost four percent since he was traded to the Nets and his assists are down by over a full assist per game. Probably the biggest difference is his ability to play consistent defense to be a complete threat in all facets of the game. But if he can really shake this ankle pain that has caused multiple procedures over the past few years, Williams could explode back onto the scene as one of the top point guards in the league.
We just need to wait an Romelu Lukaku has left for Belgium to enter talks about his future.Lukaku and the rest of the United squad arrived back in the UK from Shanghai at the end of a trip which also saw them visit Australia and Singapore.The 26-year-old then made his way d see how he holds up over the course of the next 82-game campaign.
