Happy 29th birthday to Brooklyn Nets guard Deron Williams. D-Will may have lost a step or two over the past few years while battling injuries, but if the second half of this season was any indicator, he can still play at an extremely high level. He posted 22.9 points and 8.0 assists per game on 48 percent shooting after the All-Star break. Hopefully, that is a sign of things to come for Brooklyn.

Out of all his skills and tendencies, maybe Williams’ most recognizable asset is his ridiculous killer crossover that has been putting opponents on watch since his debut in 2004. When he’s not taking out Knicks fans, he’s one of the best in the game at ankle-breaking. To celebrate his birthday, we decided to put together a list of his best crosses over the course of his career…

10. Matt Barnes Double-Crossover
Barnes is looked at as one of the better, peskier defenders in the league, but D-Will is able to shake him off with a patented double-crossover.

9. BKN Cross Against Cavs
Williams freezes the entire Cavalier defense after pulling a disgusting move on Shaun Livingston. This was one of his only three regular season dunks this year, so we find it fitting it came after a cross like that.
