Deron Williams is the Nets leader on the court, but is he their emotional leader as well? The answer is no, at least according to one of his teammates.

As Stefan Bondy writes Sunday, Joe Johnson said Friday that the "emotional leaders of the team" are Gerald Wallace and Reggie Evans, who are averaging a combined 12.2 points.

"They do a great job trying to keep us amped up," Johnson told Bondy.

To a certain extent, Williams admits that he is not the emotional leader. "That's on me as a leader," Williams said, reported Bondy. "We have a veteran team where we should be able to do that. We should be able to stay together and not go separate ways and start trying to do things on our own."
