Deron's last name is one of the most common names in the world. If one simply said "Williams", people might not know WHICH Williams one was speaking of so you have to say "Deron".
I mean there's at least 3 point guards in the league with the last name Williams. So to say 'Deron' lets people know who they're talking about.

But of course if you have a name like Pau, Peja, Kareem, those aren't common names. Anyone with the last name Williams probably SHOULD be called by their first name.
