Deron Williams

Sports Illustrated Releases Deron Williams Cover


The cover of the latest edition of Sports Illustrated will feature Brooklyn Nets guard Deron Williams, along with other Brooklyn and Nets greats Dr. J, Jay-Z, Jackie Robinson, and Fly Williams in the background. Above the picture reads “Brooklyn Rising, the NBA feels the beat of the street.” This is the first time the Nets have been on the cover of Sports Illustrated since Kenyon Martin was on the cover back in the early 2000′s.

The feature article, written by Rick Telander, says that Brooklyn is the real birthplace of basketball and is more historic than Manhattan, Chicago, Philadelphia, or any other city. It is a great thing for basketball to have an NBA team back in Brooklyn.
