The Nets play the Jazz on Saturday night. As much as players will try to portray it as just another game it isn't. It will be Deron Williams' first game back in Utah since he was traded last February. It's a particularly big deal in Salt Lake City because the Jazz is doing so much better than the Nets.
But the return may not be as bitter as Vince Carter's to Toronto, although we have to hope it's that dramatic.
Ty Corbin was an assistant coach until Jerry Sloan resigned days before the Williams trade. In an interview, the head coach of the 5-3 Jazz speaks about how Williams just wanted to win and that he never relented in that desire.
