Net Fans Have High Hopes for J-Will

Jordan Williams is big news in Torrington, CT, his hometown. Despite a lockout, he's big to Nets fans, too. The local paper, the Register-Citizen, is running a Nets' fan perspective on him, how he fits with team needs.

"He can immediately improve the team’s toughness, rebounding and interior defense," writes Justin DeFeo of Nets are Scorching in a guest column that tops Derek Jeter's milestone on the paper's sports page! "His size and power should allow coach Avery Johnson to use him right away against traditional back-to-the-basket players such as Zach Randolph or Al Jefferson."
