Deron Williams, one of the most coveted players in the free-agent class of 2012, re-signed with the Brooklyn(?) Nets early this morning. Why is the news of the re-signing of a NBA star on an Apple news site? He signed the new contract with his finger… On an iPad.
As you see above, the 28-year-old point guard put finger to touch-screen, signing the deal on his iPad and tweeting a photo of the occasion, just as he’d shared his decision to stay with the Nets via Twitter on July 3. Plus, now that Williams is going to be making nearly nine figures over five years, he can afford to buy a stylus for his iPad. (Penmanship counts, Deron, even if it’s not really a pen.)
Looks like Deron knows how to write on that iPad pretty well. Could it be he’s played Draw Something while on the road?
