London 2011: New Jersey Nets Players

Here it is, Part 3 of my bumper London 2011 Games preview. The Toronto Raptors will battle with the New Jersey Nets over two nights at London's O2 Arena.

Here is a quick lo-down on the players you might want to watch battling away in the Nets uniforms.

Deron Williams: Deron is the Nets' marquee signing of this year's in-season trade window. Signed from the Utah Jazz in return for two current Jazz players, two future Jazz players and over $3million cash. The Point Guard is now in his 6th season and was named an NBA All-Star for the 2nd year running in 2011. Williams was regarded by many experts as the league's best Point Guard in the 2009-10 season. The 6th year player has a nasty box of tricks to go with explosive speed all ready and waiting for this weekend.

Brook Lopez: 7ft Center Lopez is the glue-guy for this team. Without him, they don't play well, he just adds a certain... x-factor to the Nets' offense. See what I mean? This guy scores for fun against every player given the difficult job of stopping him. Lopez is regarded as one of the league's top defenders, largely thanks to his great energy in both attack and defense.

Jordan Farmar: Farmar is another of the young point guards making up this 'golden generation' of point guards currently terrorizing the NBA. Plenty of success has already fallen the way of the Californian, he was a part of the Lakers team that has won the last two NBA Championships.
