Nike Zoom Hyperfuse 2011 Low–Deron Williams PE "After breaking into the NBA as a member of the Utah Jazz, premier point guard Deron Williams was traded to the New Jersey Nets last season. Outfitting Williams for this upcoming season as a member of the Nets, Nike Basketball treated DWill to this clean color way of the Zoom Hyperfuse 2011 Low. One of the premier Nike Basketball shoes, the Zoom Hyperfuse 2011 Low is seen here uniquely displaying the New Jersey Nets’ team colors. White works most of the Hyperfuse base, while red works the camo inner liner, tongue and midsole. Navy blue handles the Swoosh, while white takes care of the DWill logo on the tongue. A smoked outsole holds everything down below." http://blog.eastbay.com/all/wallpaper-nike-zoom-hyperfuse-2011-low-deron-williams-pe/

D-Will Advises Patience

As word of "progress" in the CBA talks spread this morning, Deron Williams took to Twitter to say he's being "patient" and advised others to do the same. "U gotta do what u gotta do!" he told a fan who tweeted D-Will about his increasing frustration. "All we can do is be patient We want to play as much as you want to watch Trust me #ShortCareers" The two sides are scheduled to meet again at 2 p.m. Thursday amid rising hopes that Williams and some 50 other NBA players can return to the U.S.

Was Gallo Kim's First Choice?!

Shocking news about Kim and Kris tonight. The blogs are buzzing about Wet Entertainment's apparent exclusive that before Kim spotted Kris at the Heat game, one of her reps approached the Knicks to see if Danilo Gallinari was available!! Wet reports, "E! and Kim were interested in having her date a big New York athlete for the debut season of Kourtney & Kim Take New York, and the Knicks were their first choice." NO!, we say. Doesn't matter, Gallo, who goes by the nickname of "The Rooster", declined, Wet reports. He was later exiled, uh, traded to Denver.

Julius Erving Selling His Nets Rings&Memorabilia

Some of the marquis items from the collection include Dr. J's 1974 and 1976 New York Nets ABA World Championship ring; 1996 NBA's 50 Greatest Players ring; MVP trophies from 1975-76 (ABA) and 1980-81 (NBA); 1977. Along with the rest of his memorabilia with other teams It's depressing to know he's getting rid of them. In my opinion, the Nets should purchase from him all his NY Nets rings, Jerseys etc. Would make a great gesture towards our rich history, and would make a nice design for a VIP lounge at the Barc.
