Deron Williams recognizes he may look like he's fed up with the Nets, but it's more fed with losing. "It's a fine line," Williams told reporters Friday. "People think I'm just being an ass----, but I just hate to lose. I just don't like losing. I don't sleep well when I lose. It just affects everything I do. So we've got to turn it around."
"I've never lost this much in my career, this early, this consistently,'' he said. "But you know, it's still early in the season, we're still learning how to play with each other, so there's not really a timetable on how quickly a team can gel together, we're just taking longer than we would like.''
As for Anthony Morrow's mindset after being mentioned in trade talks for O.J. Mayo, he's gotten used to it. "Same old, man. Like last year but it’s nowhere near as bad," Morrow said. "It’s part of the game. It is what it is.
