‘Overthinking’ Deron Williams Is At A Loss As He Continues To Struggle
" NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) - Nets point guard Deron Williams is struggling this season.

There’s no two ways about it.

And his rough start to the 2012-’13 season — in which the Nets have dropped 11 of their last 16 games and fired their coach — has the three-time All-Star beyond frustrated.

“I don’t think I’m playing like [an elite point guard],” Williams said. “I think I can be, but I’ve just got to figure this thing out.”

Williams’ numbers have been very pedestrian in the Nets’ first season in Brooklyn. In 30 games played, the 28-year-old is averaging 16.3 points and 7.5 assists. More disturbingly, he’s shooting just 39.9 percent from the field and 30.0 percent from three-point range.

“(It’s) probably (the most frustrated I’ve been in) my whole life, not just the league,” the 6-foot-3, 209-pounder said. “I’m definitely frustrated with how I’m playing. I’m disappointed in how I’m playing. I’ve had stretches where one or two games I had off games, but never like this. I’ve never consistently played this bad.”

Brooklyn re-signed the former first-round pick to a five-year, $98.7 million contract this summer "
