Robert Williams Reveals Why He Missed Celtics’ Morning Conference Call

Boston Celtics Indiana Pacers Marcus Smart NBA

Robert Williams' career with the Boston Celtics is off to an inauspicious start after the team was unable to contact its 2018 first-round pick ahead of an official conference call Friday. "I had no idea I was on live, whatever it was", Ainge said.

Williams called it a blessing to land in Boston and said he's eager to learn from a veteran like Al Horford. The audio on the call was very poor, but from what we could decipher, it sounds like the Texas A&M product simply overslept after spending Thursday night at his aunt's house. But he said he made the right choice by returning to school for his sophomore year. "I feel like most of all, I thrive off of defense".

"Definitely no regrets", said Williams. (He won the SEC's Defensive Player of the Year award in 2017.) That skill set should fit well in Boston, which places an emphasis on defense and effort. "And I feel like I can definitely bring a lot of energy from that perspective". As far as my decision to go back, it was a decision between me, my mom, my dad.

Microsoft has put plans for VR support for Xbox devices on hold, according to an interview with Xbox's chief marketing officer. He went on to say that the PC and not the Xbox is the "best platform" for the virtual experiences.

The Celtics snagged Williams with the No. 27 pick but ran into troubles trying to get him on the phone in the aftermath of the selection, including with Friday's 11 a.m. EST call. So it was a bit of a surprise that he fell to the Celtics at No. 27.

The Celtics were not concerned about the missed call, in part because of the time difference.

"I just always pretty much know nothing is guaranteed, " he said, "so I just prepared to be ready to hear my name called whenever". "When I woke, my sister was like, 'You had a conference call'".
