Many fans used to think Deron Williams was one of the best PG’s in the league…not so much anymore. Some are even calling him D-Wont instead of D-Will. Smh. So what happened?! Deron seems to know the reason for his lackluster play. Check out what he had to say & let us know if it’s a legit reason or just an excuse.
Deron Williams says two years of constant playing may have worn him down:
“I didn’t take any time off. After last season, I never stopped working out. After the Olympics, the day I got back I worked out the next morning,” Williams said. “I thought it was the best thing to do, and now looking back, it probably would have been smarter to take some time off and get a little bit of rest, especially on my legs, and my ankles in general.
“I took a lot of pounding over the last year because even though we had a shortened season, I was over in Istanbul, so I haven’t had a break since before then. I felt like I could handle it, and at the time I thought it was the right thing to do. I didn’t want to get out of shape. I wanted to just keep going.”
