Deron Williams has arrived! The New Jersey Nets finally have a franchise player for the first time since Vince Carter left. Devin Harris had one great year, and he is still a good player, but he was not that guy unfortunately, and Lopez is not flashy enough for the role either.
The Nets had a shot here against the Spurs, actually leading at halftime, but like every Nets game all year, they fell apart in the fourth quarter. If they can just learn to compete for 48 minutes and not 36 minutes, they can easily make the postseason next year.
