Brooklyn Nets head coach Jason Kidd was at the official team store in Coney Island on Sunday meeting with fans and reporters. While at the event, Kidd took a few minutes to answer questions, including one about his star point guard, Deron Williams. When asked about Williams, Kidd said:
“I’m going to push him. I want the best for him. 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 has been the subject of a lot of pressure from his new teammates and coaches throughout the summer. Despite coming off his worst statistical season since his rookie year many members of the Nets organization believe that Williams could be an MVP candidate this year. Last season he was forced to play despite several nagging injuries and he also battled a weight problem early on in the season.
However, this season it seems that Williams is motivated and ready to take off right from the start. He has never been surrounded with this much talent in his career and he will be the facilitator for the team. Add a future Hall of Famer as a coach and Williams should be able to take the next step as a great point guard.
But it seems that the biggest difference-maker will be Williams’ desire to win. He coordinated a voluntary team workout in Los Angeles last week in order to help him and his new teammates to get used to playing with one another. He will need to step up as a clutch performer this year and be the X-Factor the Nets need to beat the top teams in the Eastern Conference.
