Lights in the sky? Deron Williams thinks he saw UFO in New York

Alex Trautwig

In an interview with Gentlemen's Quarterly, Deron Williams talks about the Nets, living in New York and his "New York moment," seeing what he thinks was an UFO.

Did you see something that'd made you think, "That'd only happen in this city,"?
Well, I don't know if you'd call this a "New York moment", but I definitely saw something I'd never seen before. The night all the power went out, I was standing out on my balcony, looking outside the window. Out of nowhere, I saw this big green flash across the sky. It wasn't lightning. It looked... It looked like a UFO.

GQ: Nice. What was it really?
A UFO. I'm telling you, man.

GQ: You really think it was a UFO?
I don't know, man. I'd never seen anything like that before.

Others note that there was indeed a light in the sky that night, but it wasn't a UFO, but an exploding transformer on 14th Street. Could it have been anything else? Perhaps Starship Brooklyn, aka Barclays Center?
