Derrick Williams Thinks He Can Replace LeBron

From SLAM:

“I think I’m the No. 1 pick because I have more star quality I would think. I’m just a bigger person. Just trying to fill in for a big star like LeBron like they’re missing. That missing piece. I think that’s me.”

I think someone over at Ball Don’t Lie mentioned this yesterday, but: savvy move, Derrick Williams. There is a very slim chance he’ll be drafted number one, but playing up the whole “I’m not afraid of anyone or anything” persona is smart.
