Bob Williams is the defensive 🐐. We all should be pumped beyond words we have potentially the missing piece to this team. He's got a 20% bust chance no doubt.
If we focus on what he can do it's incredible. The Celtics haven't had a guy with this body, size, and athleticism combination since Bill Russell.
Seriously. You just don't see these guys 6'10" range that are world class run and jump athlete's. Russell was listed at 220 pounds. Williams listed at 238 pounds. Russell was more ripped and in better shape. Williams 7'6" wingspan I'm sure Russell was very similar to that. Just checked it says Russell was 7'4" that sounds right to me.
You true old time Celtic fans can enlighten me if there has been any other Celtic that fits this physical profile but here are some big men that do not remind me of either Bob or Bill.
Tony battie, Marc Blount, Oervis Ellison, Marc Blount, Robert Parish, great but not an athlete, Potopenko
And I just remembered Garrett who although fits the bill we got him at the end. Shame we got KG so late because that's the type of athlete we need at almost 7 feet.
