Deron Williams turned 28 on Tuesday, but not so you'd really notice it. Unless you were in Brooklyn. Or Dallas. Or on the Internet.

You see, per ESPN.com's Marc Stein, the free-agent point guard seems to have narrowed his choice to two: the Brooklyn Nets or the Dallas Mavericks.

And because very few (including Avery Johnson) were invited to Williams' party, most took to the streets, the scoreboards and social media to express their desire to keep him around or bring him on board.
