I guess what I'm saying is that I'd be surprised if he was a better NBA player than Tyler Zeller

Poor comparison.

Its not a comparison.

For someone who's name stems from the words positive, you're not that much of a positive poster.  :P

But that is a VERY VERY lazy comparison.... You can do better.

It's not meant to be a comparison. They're different players. I just said it to express the sentiment that I would be surprised if Boo-Butt Williams were to have as successful a career as Tyler Zeller. Williams was picked about 10 spots later and is way less likely to stick.

Come on, guys. I know you're not allowed to compare black and white athletes to each other.

If he works he will be much better than zeller.. i think the first thing for the celtics is to make  him adapt a role.. a defensive anchor would be nice for a start

If he puts in the work and isn't impacted by injuries, Williams should be much better than Zeller.

wondering what you guys thought about his interview media day.

Some feel it is still ambiguous regarding the state of his health, particularly his knee.

On one hand, he is playing 5 on 5. On the other hand, he is working closely with the trainers to get better every day, etc.

I must admit it is a somewhat mixed message. I hope he can go full throttle starting Friday night.  We shall see.

I'm very satisfied, he isn't just playing 5 on 5 he is playing it for 3 weeks, it's hard to believe he isn't 100%

And man when he talked about what he learned it really shows his intelligence of basketball

I think people are going to dramatically underestimate how hard it is to even have the career Zeller has and that will lead people to reject this despite the statistical probability of you being right.

Six-year NBA veteran who has played in 406 career games (165 starts) (https://www.nba.com/bucks/roster/tyler-zeller)

So Tyler Zeller has started in more than 1/4th of the games he's played in the NBA.

That's a tall order for a 27th pick. Hope Williams III can prove me wrong.

You should go watch some tapes of Williams and not just look at his slot, there is a reason people are saying he will be the steal of the draft

I've already watched a ton of his College footage. I'm not only basing my evaluation on his draft positioning.

Like I said earlier, I really am rooting for this kid and would love to be wrong about him, but I was burned by Jordan Mickey and Zizic. I'll be hyped about a new Center when he actually performs in games.

Raw, but really liked the energy level and the physical tools. He wasnít always in position but he did not look lost and itís obvious he can bother NBA players as a 1 on 1 defender.

To me he looks better than JJJ or Mickey ever did. Like heíll fit in well as long as he keeps working.

If he ever becomes our version of Clinton Capela, then yes, he will be the steal of the draft

He looked promising last night.  He's bigger than I expected.  He didn't have any blocks,, but he was disrupting shots and even caused an air balled three point attempt.  Smart is going to love throwing alley oops to him.

Certainly didn't embarrass himself for first minutes in a NBA game.Showed his potential as a passer with bounce pass inside to Semi and bothered his share of shots.The fade away almost went and he set a lot of screens .A good effort.
Needs to work on upper body strength gets moved off boards.
