I made my previous Marcus Williams post before reading this morning's New York Post.
In it, the Nets article focuses on how well he and fellow UCONN attendee, Josh Boone (can't be an alumni without a degree, right?), have done.
He has great vision, and he's a giver. When you're a giver, people gravitate to you. They like to play with you, and that's a great trait to have.
As for Renaldo Balkman:
Thomas views[him] as the back-up small forward good for 10 energizing, defensive minutes off the bench.
