Here are Deron Williams’ solid backflip maneuvers.

And here are Nate Robinson’s equally solid backflip maneuvers.

Even though I don’t think anyone’s ever really compared them — except for maybe during last year’s playoffs when Nate was torching the Nets, and everyone was like, “Why is Nate Robinson getting the best of Deron Williams?” — but these couple of clips really illustrate the difference betwixt the two point guards. Deron is super steady flipper who can do every flip in the book in a controlled, calm manner while Nate is literally pushing his kids out of the way so that he can do their moves in the backyard. Apparently it takes a trampoline and some flips to discover the true nature of a point guard. Who knew?
