DALLAS -- Deron Williams insists it’s no big deal.
Never mind the fact that he’s playing in a nationally-televised game in his hometown Wednesday night, taking the court at the American Airlines Center for the first time since spurning the Mavericks this offseason when he elected to re-sign with the Nets.
So what that Mark Cuban took a few shots at him in October, trying to explain how...Read more »
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Just how rough was it for Deron Williams as he dealt with pain in his ankles leading into last month's All-Star break?

With Tuesday night's game being the second end of a back-to-back and the Nets having four days in between games before they...Read more »
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- When Deron Williams emerged from the locker room at the PNY Center after his post-practice shower, he was sporting a white T-shirt with two words on it.
At least when Williams does that now, it’s not as painful. The platelet rich plasma therapy procedure he received leading into the All-Star break has really taken affect, and Williams admitted...Read more »
