Williams Pressured About Season Opener
Just in case Deron Williams needs a refresher to remind him of the intensified rivalry the Nets and Knicks are immersed in, New Yorkers are always happy to provide one.
Particularly those Brooklynites. Lose to the Knicks in the season opener? Fuhgeddaboudit, they say.
“Yeah, people stop me a lot on the streets,” Williams said after practice at the PNY Center Tuesday, “especially in Brooklyn, coming out of the arena, around the arena, telling us how we need to beat the Knicks. We definitely hear it. We definitely know it’s there.”
