Brooklyn Nets point guard Deron Williams is in the What's The 411Sports Dog House more for his on-court performance than the comments he made about Brooklyn (New York City) in Resident magazine.
Many Brooklyn Nets fans are disappointed with Deron Williams' performance for the past two seasons.
Many feel the Brooklyn Nets could have gone further in the playoffs had Williams been healthy and able to perform better.
Unfortuantely for Williams, the fans don't care about his ankle issues, what they want is performance for his five-year $98 million contract.
Perhaps, the fans will get production out of Williams this season since he has had surgery on both ankles and has been given the green light to play.
For Williams' adjustment to NYC, he admits to having a hard time adjusting to life in New York, saying "I don't really feel like a New Yorker."
"I grew up in an apartment in Texas where you could send your kids outside like, 'Yeah, go play in the sun.' Here it's more challenging," Williams said.
Williams lives in a fabulous pad in the Tribeca (Triangle Below Canal Street) area in Manhattan, which is home to Robert DeNiro and the Tribeca Film Festival.
It is asphalt and concrete and a far cry from Utah or parts of Brooklyn, Queens, Westchester, Nassau or Suffolk counties areas in New York with trees and grass.
For a person who likes grass and outdoor living, why Tribeca over areas he finds more favorable?
