Since January 1st -- and more recently, since a detoxifying juice cleanse and platelet-rich plasma therapy treatment on his ankles -- Deron Williams has looked more like the max-contract point guard the Brooklyn Nets signed this summer. From the beginning of the season up through December 31st, Williams averaged 16.3 points and 7.5 assists per game on 39.9% shooting, 30% from beyond the arc. In 2013, Williams has bumped those numbers to 19.6 points & 7.8 assists per game on 45% shooting, and 44.6% from deep. He's been even better since his All-Star cleanse: 23.3 points, 7.9 assists, 46.7% shooting, 47.1% from 3.
