07:13 AM ET 08.26 | In terms of point guard play, Deron Williams could do a whole lot worse than learning from his new head coach. [Since] Jason Kidd's introductory press conference in July, Brooklyn's coach has aggressively pitched the rejuvenation of his point guard. It's a task Kidd seems most qualified to accomplish given his history at the position. On Sunday, the rookie coach revealed a statistical goal for Williams. It concerns passing, not surprisingly. "I'm going to push him. I want the best for him," Kidd said after signing autographs at the Nets' merchandise store in Coney Island. "When we sit down and talk about goals, team goals and also individual goals, I'm going to push him and I want to get him back to double-digit assists." Williams hasn't averaged at least 10 assists since 2010-11.

Until he wins something or takes his team to a conference finals, I have to agree.

Man does that area stink. I would've left too.

Idk, a rookie coach setting each player down and telling them what he expects from them this season is probably refreshing to the vets. I am sure Kidd would also like BroPez to get 10+ rebs a game this year. I don't see how a pg with 10+ and a center with 10+ goals can be a bad thing....

The Only Number That Matters Is Wins, Bro.

I won't put Lillard there yet.

And maybe Irving too base on your reasoning of them not doing anything yet...

He took Utah to the conference finals. I think you are thinking of CP3 when you say "until he wins something or takes his team to a conference finals"

A lot of it has had to do with injuries. He should be 100% this year. I think he is top 5. Better than Irving and Lillard.

No particular order:

Rose
Rondo
Westbrook
CP3
D Will

my co-worker's sister-in-law makes $69/hr on the laptop. She has been out of work for nine months but last month her income was $21877 just working on the laptop for a few hours. Read more on this site =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= buzz90.com

$69 an hour and 22k in a month - my math says she worked 80 hrs a week. That is a far cry from "a few hours a week'. This may not be as good as it sounded...

I hope your coworkers, sister-in-laws cousin twice removed is getting some sleep.
