I would love to see RW get some playing time tonight in the absence of Baynes.

I like the idea of keeping Robert close as he learns how to be an NBA player and mimics the vets.He also has a crew of young players around him that are dedicated to being great.One year Embid was out and all he did was shoot'I always like when young guys got blended in for their minutes rather than group garbage time.
The Magic have young bigs that would not overpower Robert with bulk or experience..
When i watch him play the perimeter and use his lateral not to mention the length disrupting shots it's like wow! He has the added bonus in having not to adjust to NBA  grabbing and pulling and then having re adjust this year.Use Jaylen as an example.

Williams got his time blended in and didn't look lost or nervous.
Brad gave him lot to learn but he will pick it up because he is eager and works hard.A perfect place to learn and not skip any steps
Horford gave him praise for his energy after the game.
With Baynes out and the way we pile up injuries better give that kid more experience.

Not sure I saw anything to be excited about by watching Williams for his few minutes on the court. I would be excited if I was an Orlando fan from what I saw from Isaac playing in just his 31st NBA game.

Williams looked better in his tiny stretch on Vuce than Al did all game, lol.

Agree about Isaac though. I was a big fan of his in college, but thought physically he might take some time to come good. His rebounding looks a lot better this season

I read this morning they are working on Williams' shot. Shot? I thought he was brought in to defend, rebound and block shots. Auerbach never worked on Bill Russell's shot.

Isaac was left alone so many times he must have felt like an outsider when he was hitting those shots.

I am starting to think that after Horford and Baynes he may be our third best big. I like Theis, but Williams' physical advantage is just huge.  I can't say I'm excited about his play just yet, but I am excited by the obvious potential and hope it materializes. He's a little overeager, but his work on Vucevic and his work to protect the rim on a drive where Marcus was (temporarily) beaten were very good. I don't think many NBA players are going to want to challenge him 1 on 1.

More Robert Williams please....

Stephens doesn't play young guys until they figure out the defensive rotations which can take awhile.

Yeah, unless you're actually any good like Smart, Tatum, etc.

Neither Williams or Semi are any good, but at least Sleepy has potential.

We don't know if Williams is good or not yet.  There's no reason to be pessimistic about him yet.
