NBA Player Deron Williams Covers The Red Bulletin Magazine

NBA player Deron Williams of the Brooklyn Nets is covering the latest issue of the Red Bull magazine. Inside, he talks about the impact of the Nets moving to Brooklyn and selling out the newly Barclays Center. Below is an excerpt and some highlights.

After piling into a black Land Rover, we head north up Myrtle Avenue for our next photo shoot, taking a diagonal through the heart of the borough, from ethnic Brooklyn to a version of a Brooklyn future that might come to be. In the Rover, Williams assumes a different character: the businessman, showing the acumen that has led the Nets to put the next five years in his hands.

On the Nets moving to Brooklyn from New Jersey:

“I think it’s an exciting move, that’s one of the reasons I stayed,” he says. “The people in Brooklyn are eager and hungry for a team, a winning team. If we start winning, I can be part of something special.”

On selling out the Barclays Center:

“People are proud of being from Brooklyn,” Williams says. “I don’t think we’re going to have a problem selling out the arena. Other people around the NBA are taking notice and want to see what this can be.”
