Definitely a steal if we can fix his issues

Reminds me a bit of Carlos Arroyo.

I'm hopeful that he can both make good on his talent and do stupid things that only his fanbase can appreciate.
Carlos Arroyo the point guard?

Williams is an absolute steal. CBS had him going 12th to Clippers in their mock draft.

The kid can jump through the roof. He is everything the Celtics don't have right now. His wingspan is as good as Ayton's.

Another great value pick by Ainge deep in a draft. Can’t wait to see the guard we get in the 2nd. Finally an athletic 5 who can defend & block shots

so theis cannot rebound or block shots? what about baynes? theis has a huge motor. not sure what you have been watching. but yeah maybe this draft pick can continue that and improve it.

Lord i remember the Mickey hype on here .   We will see how he acts on the NBA court ....will he understand at the speed of the NBA or will he freeze and watch the game like several other bigs C's drafted .

He seems to have a Whiteside type game .  It took Hassan a few years to develop ,   maybe he is hevnext Whitside  ;D

I wanted him last year before our pick became top 4. So I am ecstatic we got him with our own pick this year.
Favorite Current NBA Player: Jaylen Brown
-> Fan since his first game against the Cavs.

Tatum fan since he shot his first jumper.

I don't want to put any pressure on the kid, but I think that defensively he should be the next Bill Russell.

I didn't want to say that, but I saw Russell play his rookie year in Boston. This kid can jump like Russell, but he has a better mid range shot. Russ was also left handed.

We'll see if he can develop the kind of defensive skills Russell had. The young Russell had a similar long body and could also jump through the roof. The kid has the tools, and needs the right teachers. Just keep him away from the 3P line.  :laugh:

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 ::) ;D. Didn't Stevens also say that R.J. Hunter was going to have a great career ::)? I just, I can't, lol ;D.

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?

I am surprised  you do not think that Celtics have the culture to set the kid on the right path.

Robert Williams reminds you of Carlos Arroyo?
Curious as to how you arrived to that conclusion lol

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.

Quote
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.

Yeah, maybe instead of taking ESPN's #12 player, a 20 year old who as a freshman put up 12-8-1.4 with 2.5 blocks and .7 steals in 25.6 mpg...we should have taken your guy Rawle Alkins, not taken in the first 51 picks by professionals and the #6 BPA (57) in a 60 man draft. 

Maybe we'll get your guy as an undrafted rookie free agent, AND the #12 player.

Not to be too hard on you, my friend nails picks all the time and he likes Alkins too.
Give us this pick, Almighty Red
And forgive us our tanking
As we forgive those who tanked against us
And lead us not into the lottery
But deliver us from losing

They’re about the same height and probably similar wing span. We can only hope.
