Report: Celtics rookie has artery condition in both legs

  Report: Celtics rookie has artery condition in both legs All of the news surrounding Robert Williams since he was drafted by the Boston Celtics seems to be negative. On Monday, MassLive.com’s Fred Katz reported that Williams has an artery condition in both of his legs. Katz says the condition is not believed to be very serious, although it could require a procedure in the future if it gets worse.

Twice.

Tom Westerholm of MassLive:

On the Friday before the Boston Celtics began practicing for Las Vegas Summer League, Robert Williams had a flight to catch back to College Station, TX. Before he went to the airport, he worked out with Celtics coaches in the morning, gave his introductory press conference around noon, and participated in a Celtics Shamrock Foundation event at a local school a couple of hours later.

Dick Vitale calls Celtics' Robert Williams a 'fool' after rookie misses flight

  Dick Vitale calls Celtics' Robert Williams a 'fool' after rookie misses flight Dick Vitale wasn't impressed with Boston Celtics draft pick Robert Williams after the rookie missed a flight to his first summer-league practice. Vitale tweeted that Williams was "making a fool of himself.""This dude better learn to RESPECT the tradition of (Celtics)," Vitale tweeted on Monday. "What a way for Robert Williams to start his NBA career.

The Boston Celtics have signed first - round draft pick Robert Williams . Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge deemed the possibility of his team completing another summer blockbuster trade as unlikely.

All the while, Celtics staffers were racing to find Williams’ wallet.

The rookie big man realized he had left it at his hotel, and making his 5:30 p.m. flight briefly looked dicey as the community event ticked toward 3 and then 3:30 p.m. Eventually, however, the staffers recovered the wallet back at the hotel, and Williams finished his event peacefully.

A day later, as Williams was preparing to leave for the airport to hop on a flight back to Boston, he realized that — once again — his wallet was missing. Once again, he knew where it was — former Texas A&M forward D.J. Hogg had it. But Hogg was already back in Dallas, nearly three hours away.

That probably at least partially explains Williams’ missed flight back to Boston.

Williams faces enough challenges he can’t control – a medical condition, the NBA transitioning away from traditional centers. He must handle his business far better to stick in the NBA.

So far, Williams has done little but justify the pre-draft concerns about his work ethic, attitude and focus – which is honestly fun to follow, but terrible for his career.
