Boston Celtics rookie Robert Williams proved on Friday night. that he doesn’t need a lot of time to make an impact in a game.

Rookie Robert Williams hasn’t gotten a ton of playing time in his rookie season. It’s hard when you have such a talented roster as the Boston Celtics do. Williams showed Celtics fans why he was picked on Friday.

Al Horford didn’t play, meaning that there would be more minutes to spread around. This means that Celtics fans got to see guys like Williams and PJ Dozier play for more than the last few minutes of a blowout.

Williams looked great in the 8 minutes he played. He only scored two points, but he soared high through the air, throwing down an alley-oop. Williams also had two rebounds and two impressive blocks.

The rookie’s athleticism is off the charts. He has shown how useful he can be in a short period of time. Imagine what will happen will Williams gets some decent playing time.

Williams has already caught the attention of his teammates who can’t wait to see what Williams will do in the future.

"“That kid, he’s going to be special, man. He’s going to be special,” Morris said. When he gets a chance to go out there and really contribute to this team he’s going to be special. His mindset and how hard he works, the intangibles, things you just can’t teach — I think he’s going to be special for this team.”"

Since we finally get to see what Williams can do on the court, it puts all the nonsense about him being late and missing flights into perspective. He has done all the right things since joining the NBA.

Williams has a great mentor in Al Horford and made the smart decision to move close to the Boston Celtics facility. The rookie has now even garnered the most unique nickname in NBA history, Time Lord.

dark. Next. Things aren't looking good for Terry Rozier

This is just the start for Robert Williams. I can’t wait to see the type of player he becomes by the end of the season. I think Boston Celtics fans will be pleased by yet another great pick by Danny Ainge.
