Tonight is more than just another game against an Eastern Conference foe. We all know the extra significance that D-Will coming home (yes coming home...Deron is a jazzman for life in my book). So here is my request.
Do not Boo Deron!
Deron gave everything he had to this franchise and put us back on the map post John and Karl. Unlike Carlos Boozer, Deron gave his best effort every night. Deron played through pain and rarely missed games. Deron was clutch and fearless. Deron was the leader that Carlos Boozer claimed to be but never was.
Deron Williams meant more to this team than Carlos Boozer and Derek Fisher combined. Please treat him that way. Outside of John and Karl there is not a single Jazz player who contributed more to the success of this franchise during his time in a uniform.
Deron deserves our praise. Lets give it to him.
