Turkey’s Besiktas Retires Deron Williams’ Jersey | Best Games

Published on November 30th, 2011 by Astramskas, David | 989 views

Well that was fast.  It takes most players years of accolades and many times a championship to have a jersey retired but after 15 games and an average of 21.8 points and 6.5 assist  in Turkey, Deron #NoDaysOff Williams had his No. 8 jersey lifted into the rafters.  My two questions is what does it take to make the hall of fame over there (a full season?) and would Italy of retired Kobe’s jersey if that 1 game deal would of happened.

Deron scores 50pts in 36mins
