Our Rook may have a problem.....

Post by beat on Sun Jul 01, 2018 6:24 pm

Can’t make this stuff up: Celtics say rookie first-round pick Robert Williams, who was introduced here Friday, missed his flight back to Boston and was not present for the start of summer league practice today. Williams already overslept an introductory conference call.

The Celts may have to assign him a handler. I'm available for $120 k for the season. Can cook too.

worcester,

Great point about Williams needing an attendant. He will not be the first guy to need such help.

But, I will make a bid to become Williams' personal attendant for only $100 K. I believe that I can undercut your offer since I have lower overhead.

I'll do it for 50, but they gotta supply the PBR during working hours.

He has not signed a contract with the Celtics yet if I am correct. Therefore, he could be stashed overseas as a dose of reality for him to absorb.

Technically he could be kept out of the NBA for years............the kid better wise-up fast as his shxt will not play in Boston!

Matty,

You can not really be serious-$50,000? Perhaps you are not doing road trips?

Hey kid, wake the F U, you're not in Kansas anymore.  You have a regular job now.

You can miss free throw but you cannot miss a scheduled news conference, airline flight, a team practice or a trip to the bathroom or else you may end up shitting your pants.  Wake the F U now!

Kids look at NBA players and aspire to one day become like them the day they pick up a basketball.

Williams is going to have to learn that simply being talented and showing up (he couldn't even do that) isn't enough. Even working hard and playing hard doesn't guarantee anything. And he's over here taking the opportunity for granted as if someone else couldn't take advantage of it.

So far, this does not reflect well on him. This was a deep draft and he fell for a reason and I guess we're seeing why.

He needs a REALLY LOUD alarm clock.
since he's a kid, maybe if there's one that pretends to be an app he'd try it.

like a dating app, maybe ...

then it goes off at 7am and he thinks his date is at the door ! Twisted Evil

Definitely not a good look, but I am going to try and stay positive - you can teach a kid to use an alarm clock, but you can't teach him be able to jump out of the gym. He seems to want to be a good teammate, but still does stupid stuff. Celtics environment will be great for him - if he can't become responsible here, then he never will.

I've tried to comment on this twice but keep losing the message, but basically yeah, i'd make out real good on the + expenses part.

I generally live really cheap, but if someone else can cover my beer tab, i'm quite pleased.

as for road trips, ive actually had a few this year, just got back from a pacific northwest road trip where i'd drove around Washington and Oregon for 11 days, and right before that i'd spent some time between Ohio and Ga quite a bit with a week spent in the smokies (including about 40 miles hiking the AT)

If nothing else Williams has seemingly not made any excuses relating to his actions and has not tried to blame anyone else.

Perhaps there is hope for him?
