Nets’ Deron Williams: Slump is ‘Mental’
People around Deron Williams keep telling him that he’s going to snap out of his slump, that he’s too good to be this bad and he shouldn’t stop hoisting jumpers.
Williams, however, has exhausted all explanations for what has become his three-season romance with inefficiency.
“I think it’s mostly mental with me. It’s become mental,” Williams said recently. “I’ve tried getting up extra shots, I’ve tried not shooting so I don’t think about it. I tried shooting before games, not shooting before games, so I hopefully I snap out of it.”
