08:08 AM ET 12.20 | Was Deron Williams sending a message earlier this week when he mentioned Jerry Sloan's offense in Utah was a better fit for him than Avery Johnson's? There are those who believe that Williams knew exactly what he was doing when he spoke of how he yearns for the Utah offense -- for the pick-and-roll freedom under Sloan, whose early retirement, you may recall, was prompted by a disagreement with Williams. Now, Williams was laying the foundation for change again. ... With the belief in the organization that the Nets have enough talent to be a top team in the East -- straight from the top, straight from Mikhail Prokhorov -- it's easy to see that this will land at Avery Johnson's feet if it doesn't get fixed.

Bro you don't want me to pull up the quote where you said you were from buffalo but just follow the Knicks. Bro. what you should have said is "I'm from Brooklyn but I did say that in a quote", then it would showed honesty and character. Instead you took the weasel road by leaving out what you quoted. Do I have to view you as a liar? If so, I certainly can let you have it, otherwise you don't have to respond to anything I say, get it, I won't lose one moment of thought on it, trust me. Apple!

Don't Give Us All That Jazz, Bro.
