Watch Grant Williams Hear His Name Called As Celtics First-Round Pick

Celtics fans won’t have any trouble rooting for Grant Williams.

Williams, Boston’s second first-round pick in Thursday night’s NBA draft, has an extremely high motor and plays with the type of grit that undoubtedly will be admired by green teamers. And while the Tennessee product likely would have been happy with wherever he landed in the draft, he sure seems pretty stoked about ending up in Boston.

Check out Williams’ draft moment in the video below, which includes the 20-year-old’s thoughts on joining one of the league’s most historic franchises.

Williams excited Celtics fans Thursday night with more than just his potential. An old video resurfaced of the power forward disputing Kyrie Irving’s flat-Earth theories, which surely was music to the Boston fanbase’s ears given the star point guard’s expected departure.
