A sign the Nets really want Deron Williams. Literally a sign.

Deron Williams birthday

It’s down to Brooklyn and Dallas.

Deron Williams is the best free agent on the market this summer and reportedly he either stays with the Nets and leads them into Brooklyn, or he heads to his home town of Dallas, teams up with Dirk Nowiztki and hangs with Mark Cuban.

The Nets want Williams to know how much they love him. They really, really want him to know. Today is D-Will’s birthday — happy 28th! — and the Nets put up a not-so-subtle sign in front of his home today. The Instragram photo was posted by Amy Williams (hat tip to John Schuhmann of

That is so much better than just a Facebook message.

Of course, Mark Cuban has probably hired a blimp to fly around Williams’ house all day flashing a “Happy Birthday from your friends in Dallas” message. Or something like that.

    i called Deron Williams, Gerald Wallace and Dwight Howard in Brooklyn next year. Ya’ll hated on me for it. It is a strong possiblity now as Dwight ONLY WANTS TO BE IN BROOKLYN. NOT HOUSTON, NOT DALLAS, BROOKLYN. check it out HATERS

      Well good thing for Orlando, its not up to Dwight where he gets traded to. He’s welcome to leave Hou if they pull off that trade, but he’s there for at least a year. And stop proclaiming your stupid ass predictions ended up right when nothing has been settled with all 3 of those players.

    Who cares what you called? He’s still going to Dallas.

    its worth noting that his wife posted this photo… as DWill is in Chicago for the Nike Skills Academy.

    good to know that the Nets are on top of things.

    its definitely a nice gesture… but posting a giant, rolling billboard in front of my private residence would irk me if i was a celebrity.
