At one point, Darren Williams was seen as a top-five NBA point guard with draft classmate Chris Paul. Now Williams has retired and admitted that he is a little jealous of Paul and how he is still playing at such a high level after so many years.
Williams and Paul were elected third and fourth, respectively, in 1998 2005 NBA draft, Both feel their presence as they enter the league. Williams’ run off The great game was short-lived Compared to CP3, between 2006-2013 in Utah and New Jersey / Brooklyn. Darren even had a four-year period where he averaged double-doubles on points and assisted every season. Injuries then began to catch up with him and between 2013 was his number and playing time Begins to decrease.
Paul on the other hand? Although he has been plagued by injuries throughout his career, his level of play has never seemed to deteriorate. No matter how many points or assists Paul has, he seems to be the top point guard from day one in the NBA. Although we do not classify CP3 as a scorer, he has never averaged less than 14.4ppg, and this is happening this season – when he is 36 years old. Paul averaged 16 points in this league and assisted in about 8 games. Excluding this year, Paul has averaged double-doubles of six points and assists in his career, and he is already back in the campaign. He also has four more seasons where he has assisted at least nine times per game.
This is an off-fame-level continuity that Williams surprised when he saw Paul Ball like the rest of us. Occasionally excluded Nut punch, There is nothing negative to say about Paul’s game. The only thing missing from Paul’s HOF biography is a championship. He came close to strong last season, falling just six games to Milwaukee Buck in the NBA Finals just a few months ago. Paul seems to be the best place to continue his hoop legacy and adding the right squad around him to possibly run it this year.
For Williams, he is preparing for his upcoming Debut celebrity boxing match On Saturday, December 18, former NFL ran against Frank Gore. Since his retirement, Williams and former rival Paul have become friends out of court. Paul supported Williams was one of the first to contact Darren after his war game and after the declaration of war.
Hopefully, Williams has done well in his debut, and for Paul, his vision is to take the Phoenix Suns to the NBA Finals. That road may be harder than initially coming in season, but at the moment, the San have the opportunity to run another deep post season like any other team in the association.
