D-Will is still an elite point, even with his streaky shooting. His playmaking and passing is still top notch and if he can get his shooting touch back and keep feeding Lopez instead of allowing JJ to be iso-Joe then the Nets could really make a run.
I'm glad he is playing better.
nice to hear other fans being positive about d-will. we're definitely getting an upsurge of effort and attitude in the wake of PJC becoming the head coach. just hope he doesn't alienate the players like in the past.
but overall PJ does seem to be a more on-the-ball coach who wants you very much to succeed as a player but who gets right to the point about things. very refreshing after hearing the tired old "we battled... we have to look at the positives... we'll get better eventually"
lines that avery was in love with throwing out there.
and a new article about this stuff in the latest GQ
of all places:
Straight Out of Brooklyn: The Fall of Avery Johnson
not to change the subject too much, but this is probably the biggest reason d-will has stepped up so impressively.
