Deron Williams gets huge honor in Turkey
With the NBA lockout finally ending, All Star Deron Williams‘ days in Turkey are apparently numbered. But it seems he made quite the impression too. Williams, who only played 15 games for Turkish powerhouse Besiktas and averaged 21.8 ppg (including a 50 point outburst last week) and 6.5 assists per game, had his no. 8 jersey retired. Williams says he hopes to return to Besiktas, perhaps after his NBA days end. Check out the video below.
I can only imagine what they would have done for Kobe Bryant if he had come overseas to play.
