Then why the snarky comment--the fact that Williams is shooting and hitting a corner shot and a mid range minutes into the game shows mindset and is a departure from just dunks
.Also made some nice passes showing his court awareness.

I actually see similarities with Horford and Williams. Not the defensive specialty, but Williams starting out as a mid range shooter within 1-2 years, and following a similar trajectory basis.

Great underrated passer, starting mid range shots, and eventually going back to the 3 pt line within 4-5 years. As long as he stays a Celtic... (Ainge KEEP HIM!)

Last Saturday I saw him get 16 and 12 against the Memphis Hustle.

He was a bit lethargic in the first half, and the Claws were awful, down 26 midway through the third.

I was screaming down at the court that he needed to start dominating, and whadda you know, he did!  ;D He grabbed just about every rebound in the fourth quarter and really controlled the paint and altered a lot of shots. He made the other team look silly.

The Claws went ahead in the last minute and won by one point. Awesome game, best comeback I've ever seen live.

He also did make at least two medium/long jumpers, and looked reasonably smooth doing so.

He looks very in control and decisive with his passes.  Then the obvious bouncy athleticism.  I cannot wait for this guy to get minutes and honestly would rather them go to him over Theis.

Thanks for the info....

Williams has good form on his foul shots and jump shots. Leads me to believe he might end up developing into a decent outside shooter.

On another topic:

Haven't yet seen any posts lamenting;

"Danny should have drafted player X instead of Williams."

Any front runner players in that regard?

Personally, I wanted Danny to draft the shooter Dzanan Musa. He's been injured much of the year and has not done much at the NBA level. (Although, didn't he have a big game against the Celtics earlier in the season? Or, am I thinking of someone else?) He is starring in the G-League. https://gleague.nba.com/player/dzanan-musa/

The other player I wished Danny had drafted was Mitchell Robinson. Anyone think Williams may turn out to be the better player. Comparisons? Williams seems a lot stronger...

In retrospect, I haven't followed NBA basketball like I have in the past. Thus, I can't make a good judgement about other players. From what I've seen, I believe William's been a pretty solid pick. Anyone else feel the same way? Or, were there better selections available from you've witnessed?

Just looking through the draft results and the only players worth noting that I see would be Omari Spellman, Ellie Okobo, Jalen Brunson, Mitchell Robinson and Rodions Kurucs.  I like our Williams pick.

Kurucs is who I meant....not Musa

What Robert Williams has is a built in blocking machine.

It is composed of two elements.

At 6'9" 237 lbs he's got legit HOPS. Watch him time his jumps....

Next is a 7 foot 6 inch wingspan....add an engine and he could fly anywhere.

He's athletic, he can bounce around, he's not a concrete footed big.

With the Celtics, he doesn't need to score, just needs to learn his trade...swat

Dozier, is 21+/7/7 in 30 games...wow

Thanks for update, Rollie!

Davis isn't coming here....don't even know why his name keeps coming up on this site. He's a crybaby and wants to go to LA....let him go.

Probably because he's been Danny's focus and long term plan for years.
