This was a good pick, 7'5" wingspan, can guard the perimeter, 6'10" with a 40 inch vertical !
He lacks skills but lordy does he have potential.
Stevens said he's very high on him.
I still wanted Spellman, but I'm gonna trust Steven's judgement.
I don't like the fact he had immaturity issues and terrible shooting mechanics, but we gotta give him a chance.
Man, they say that same crap every year, lol . Didn't Stevens also say that R.J. Hunter was going to have a great career ? I just, I can't, lol .
Don't get me wrong, I'll certainly be watching the guy in the Summer League, etc., but it's just never a good idea to take any guy with a sub-par motor and/or work ethic, imo, as those are characteristics that you simply cannot teach, in my view. You've either got it or you don't, to me, but we'll see as to what happens.
Had Williams been drafted by the Warriors, for example, I could have seen that possibly panning out owing to Draymond and company constantly being in his ear and all that comes with being immersed in a championship environment, but I really don't know about this one, man, and what's the deal with Khyri Thomas?
RJ Hunter was unlucky, because he was never a great defender, and his shooting was horrible considering his low release point. If you can't defend, or play hard on that end, you're not going to see minutes in the Celtics. Point. Blank. Ojeleye is a perfect example as Orlando has brought up many times.
A&M is 297th in the country in 3-point percentage, and their top two point guards are gone. Senior Duane Wilson went down with a season-ending right knee injury in February and freshman J.J. Caldwell was kicked off the team for several violations of university policy.
They also asked Robert Williams to play out of position. He's more of a rim running athletic 5.
I think Williams has terrible work ethic, but why are you so sure Williams won't do well within the Celtics? You say Draymond would scream in his ear, and force him to fix his mistakes, but there are certainly other players on our team that can provide the same mentorship/leadership.
Also I have no clue. I feel bad for Thomas. He's an excellent player. I hope the best for him.
I'm going to give him a chance. He literally just has to rebound, block shots, and putback dunks/lobs. Pretty easy. Eventually, once he develops a face up game, we'll see what happens.
I'm excited for Robert Williams.
Brown, Tatum, and Williams= Lob city.
