Jackson wondered why Warriors defenders were respecting Williams' shot so much. The 12-year NBA veteran posted unimpressive averages of 1.0 point, 1.6 rebounds and 1.2 assists through five NBA Finals contests. Williams was 2-for-16 from the field, good for 12 percent shooting.
"Why would you fall for a Deron Williams shot fake," Jackson asked in a tweet.

Jackson was cheering for the Warriors during the contest. He kept calling LeBron James a football player in his tweets. After the game he wondered who the Warriors' next opponent would be.
"Great Season, Bball was lit! Who got next? Uhhhhhh ... how many yds did Bron have?," Jackson asked.

The Snakes on a Plane star is primarily a San Antonio Spurs fan.
"Once upon a time, my Spurs led these Dubs by...A [expletive] LOT, in these playoffs!! Then they played the 2nd half. Dubs 15-0," Jackson tweeted on Friday.

Williams, 32, missed the only two shots he attempted Monday in 12 minutes off of the bench. He had two rebounds, two assists and two turnovers. The three-time All-Star signed a one-year, $259,626 deal with the Cavaliers in February.
