Deron Williams is definitely confident about the Nets next season, and he is not afraid to say so. When giving an interview for a Russian sports site, Deron had this to say:
I am happy. I cannot wait. Last one and a half years I was in New Jersey, preparing. Everything will be fine. A team with a future, and an excellent owner. A Russian! I think this year we will have a good chance to show what we can do … I think that this season we’ll definitely make the playoffs. I see no reason why we shouldn’t be there. Everything depends on how fast we get used to (each other as) the team.
Deron also said that he still believes that Mikhail Prokhorov’s guarantee is still true, that the Nets will win an NBA championship by 2015.
I love this confidence from D-Will. Even though the NBA seems to have a lot of teams fighting at the top, he wants the Nets to get into the discussion as one of the best teams. Of course, the Nets have not won anything yet, but I am glad to see that the Nets are ready to take a big step forward next season.
