The NBA is exhibiting a renaissance at the point guard position. Whereas even solid, serviceable big men are a rare breed (I'm talking about cats 6'10" and taller) and the ones we do have are in dire need of basic low post skills like scoring and shot-blocking, the point guard spot hasn't been this flush full of talent since the early-to-mid 1980's. Chicago Bulls center Joachim Noah of Chicago wouldn't even get off the bench back in the day , but I guess Granville Waiters isn't walking through that door anytime soon, so he is a starter with a nice contract extension on a championship-level squad that boasts only one true standout star, and that is point guard Derrick Rose.
Nobody wants to play in New Jersey, so they can't entice any quality free agents, even with the promise of a gleaming new stadium right in the heart of Brooklyn. And the Bling factor brought on board by the illustrious J-Hova never materialized. I never understood why this aspect was so overplayed in the media. Jay-Z has enough juice to get courtside seats (not hard to do with those promotional giveaways The Nets advertise on television) and hang out with the players, and that's it. And who the fuck would want to hang out with those losers? For the Nets to re-sign Williams to a long-term deal, they will HAVE to either make a trade for Dwight Howard, who has stated The Nets are a destination he's consider, or just wait until the off-season to get him with the assurance that Williams will be there.
Yes, but will she and the Garden fans love him long time?
