For a guy who slid way down the draft board due to serious concerns about his motor and work ethic, this is not the start Robert Williams wanted with the Celtics. “Right after the draft, I actually ran to my aunt’s house and went to sleep because I was so tired from everything,” Williams said Friday afternoon in a call that took place an hour later than originally scheduled. The Celtics blamed this on a miscommunication and the one-hour time difference between Boston and Louisiana.

Are the Boston Celtics turning into the San Antonio Spurs? Appearing Friday morning on "Toucher & Rich" on 98.5 The Sports Hub, long-time Celtics radio play-by-play announcer Sean Grande said that drafting Texas A&M center Robert Williams — once speculated as a potential lottery pick — late in the first round was a play straight out of the Spurs' playbook. "With the caveat that every team pretty much wakes up this morning and says ‘Wow, we nailed it', it's hard to imagine the Celtics could do better," Grande said.

First, you have to suspend disbelief and imagine that Belichick would be able to navigate FaceTime. Then keep disbelief suspended and imagine he'd take that call from, say, Joe Thuney or Eric Rowe on the day of the draft, never mind when the Patriots were on the clock.

On a draft night when there was very little drama, intrigue or surprises to speak of, the Celtics landing Texas A&M's Robert Williams certainly qualifies as an unexpected pairing. Williams was seen by most as a potential lottery pick (top 14). To have such a precipitous fall, there are likely factors weighed by NBA teams that passed on him that go beyond his ability.
