Deron Williams Responds to Kobe Remarks

Deron Williams said he isn’t going to push the issue when he’s struggling, regardless of what Kobe Bryant thinks.

The Nets point guard, who admittedly struggled with his confidence a year ago, fell under heavy scrutiny last season because he went scoreless in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference semifinals against Miami.

Bryant chimed in on the subject in a Sports Illustrated article last month, saying Williams “psyched himself out” because he only took nine shots that game and “I would go 0-for-30 before I went 0-for-9.”

Williams said Sunday that Bryant’s mentality doesn’t work for him.

“I’m a point guard. If I’m 0-for-(expletive)-9, I’m not shooting 20 more shots. Not going to happen,” Williams said following the second day of training camp. “I’m a point guard. I’m going to find somebody else. Kobe Bryant, that’s what he’s supposed to do. He’s got that mentality. That works for him, I got my mentality, it works for me.”
