*Since the Nets have never had 3 Ws on a roster, that data point is interpolated.
This NBA offseason, the recently relocated Brooklyn Nets re-signed an important player in Deron Williams. They also returned to the optimal number of players called Williams on their roster. They traded or didn't re-sign Shelden, Jordan and Shawne, harking back to the glory days of 2001-2004 when the only Williams on the roster was named Aaron and as a result the team made the NBA Finals twice. In the early 80s the Nets signed 2 Williams (Ray and Buck), resulting in a big 20W improvement and a trip to the Eastern Conf Finals. It wasn't until they removed one Williams (Ray) that they were able to go one step further. How did they win the ABA finals without a single Williams in the 70s? Further analysis would indicate there was a Williams-on. More study is required here. I'll be back in a few years with my PhD.
