The Nets Parked a ‘Happy Birthday’ Billboard Outside Deron Williams’s Apartment Today


Deron Williams can become a free agent on July 1, and as Will wrote yesterday, the Nets really, really are going to want to re-sign him. Which is to say: This week is a good time for the Nets to be extra nice to Williams, and today, on the occasion of D-Will's 28th birthday, the Nets parked the mobile billboard you see above outside of Williams's Manhattan apartment. Perhaps it might have been more effective, though, if they just packed a truck with $28 million in twenty-dollar bills. After all, that's a million bucks for each year of his life — as well as the amount of money that the Nets, who can also give him an extra year on his contract, can pay him above what any other team can offer.
