Deron Williams and Joe Johnson have a combined 23 years of experience in the NBA. Though older than Ellis-Jennings, Williams and Johnson are bigger, stronger and play the game a lot smarter. In just 27 shots, they averaged a combined 35 points per game.

Williams and Johnson both began the 2012-13 season slowly but finished strong to help Brooklyn nab the fourth seed in the Eastern Conference. The Nets were knocked out of the playoffs in the first round by the Chicago Bulls, but Williams played great and finally looked like he was settling in, but Johnson and his outrageous contract will prevent the duo, and ultimately the Brooklyn Nets, from succeeding further.
