Anthony Gruppuso-USA TODAY Sports

Deron Williams is in the midst of yet another injury riddled season. Williams has battled ankle woes and now has said that his confidence is low. Jason Kidd is trying a unique way to get the best out of his 100-million dollar guard, going up against him in practice.

Stefan Bondy of the New York Daily News reports that Kidd played with the team during five-on-five drills during practice, matching up against Williams.

During another disappointing and injury-riddled season for Deron Williams, Kidd stepped on the court during five-on-five drills and went head-to-head with the point guard in a spirited exchange at a recent practice, a source told the Daily News.

Bondy adds that Kidd was "going hard at Williams" and that Williams can use some inspiration from the future Hall of Fame inductee Kidd.
