    It's a sprained ankle and he will be sitting on the bench come playoff time. Winning > non career threatinging  minor injury and my eyes bleeding from a someone who brings nothing to the team.

    Williams is a body.  If he gets on the court, Doc will tell him to play defense, contest shots, use his 6 fouls and rebound.  I don't expect that much, but the guy has NBA experience and could help rest KG when needed.  For this late in the season, I cannot see the downside.

    Re: Sean Williams - Good pick?

    If this Williams guy is going to be able to help, why wasn't he signed (and O'Neal waived) much sooner?  It is hard to imagine that he will be incorporated into the offense and defense quickly enough to be able to help.

    It is not like O'Neal was going to be able to play for the last six weeks.

    Looking at the future, perhaps he can show that he is beyond his disciplinary issues and will get a cheap contract for next year.

    As long as we need more sexual predators and drug dealers in Boston then how could Williams be a bad pick?  Of course he is a good pick.

    Great signing! Shot blocker and long. Now we have Steimer and Williams to defend at the rim and Rondo and Bradley defending on the perimeter. I like this team.

    Bradley has really been impressive. If it wasn't for that one game Doc tinkered with the lineup against the Spurs this team would be on a tear.

    Great defensive team now!

    We're simply picking him up to play these last couple of games that don't matter to us.  We won't see him in the playoffs unless something really terrible happens.

    Re: Sean Williams - Good pick?

    Not a guy I'm happy to see coming back to Boston. I don't know if y'all watch BC basketball, but some of you may remember they had a pretty dang good team in 2006/2007, only losing 8 games all year. They had the solid group of Tyrese Rice, Jares Dudley and Sean Marshall leading them. They wound up with a 7 seed and had a disappointing 2nd round tourney exit to Georgetown due in large part to the fact that Georgetown could do anything they wanted in the paint over kids like John oates, Tyrelle Blair, and Shamari Spears (who was only 6-6), while Georgetown had a guy by the name of Roy Hibbert. You may have heard of him ;)

    The reason the Eagles had no inside defensive presence is because their prolific shot blocker, one Sean Williams, had been kicked out of school for once again getting picked up for drugs. He had been suspended for the first semester the previous year as well. That season the Eagles went on to be the #7 ranked team to finish the season, but could have finished even better if they had Williams in the lineup for two close losses in the first half of the season (Maryland and Michigan State). After he was kicked out, Dudley and Marshall graduated, and the team only had Rice as a legit player. They circled the drain after that and you see where they are today. An inside/outside PG/C combo of Williams and Ric would have been enough to make them at least a contending team, and would have helped with later recruiting.

    No matter how you cut it, this is a guy who repeatedly let his team down then, and has done absolutely nothing to prove otherwise. He was madiocre with the Nets, but was thrown out of a bunch of D-league games and was such a distraction the team begged the Nets to recall him. They did and then cut him. Since then he's played a whopping 8 games for the mavs, including the one in the video link where he was so ready for his junk time minutes he puked all over the bench after having to be pulled from the game. The guy has, or at least had, a great nose for the blocked shot and some solid athletic ability, but he's not the kind of guy I'm liking seeing in Green.

    Here's a bleacher report article on him helping to kill BC Basketball.

    And if you wanted to see how effective he'll likely be for the C's, here's his NBA highlight reel to this point.

    There are knuckleheads all over the league. Sometimes all it takes is to get in the right situation around vets that are serious and maybe a guy changes.

    JON didn't have any off the court issues but he stunk on the court. So I have no problem taking a flier on SWill...high reward, low risk.

    Re: Sean Williams - Good pick?

    I think this is a good pickup.  I simply question the timing of it.  Everybody knew we needed to bring in some bigs with season-ending injuries to Wilcox and JON.  We've known that for the past few weeks.

    Seems that Hollins and Williams could have both been brought in and integrated together into what we do and see which one distinguishes himself from the other.  But right now, Williams is at a huge disadvantage because he only has 3 games to learn the system and make "some" kind of impact - which is very unlikely.

    What can we truly expect from the guy in 3 games?  You kind of can't expect much for then folks would be questioning why he wasn't picked up earlier.

    I hope he plays tonight and goes for 10 and 10.

    Re: Sean Williams - Good pick?

    Petey,

    I think part of the timing may come from Ainge/Doc now know we've won the division and need to rest some guys. It may have disrupted things if they tried to work new pickups in while they were making a push to win the division. I suspect we'll see more of Hollins now too. I would be surprised if KG plays another reg season game.

    Doc should really get COY in my opinion.

    The team was the 7th seed for much of the year and moved to the 4th seed. All this while losing Green, Wilcox, JON, Pietrus and speculation of trades all season. Finally inserting and playing Bradley has made the backcourt of Rondo/Bradley a good one for the next 3-5 years.

    ok depth move i assume.....espescially since steamer cant catch a break with the refs.....and the way the refs salivate over the heat at home, we are going to need all the bigs we can get because they may be in foul trouble halfway through the 1st quarter...

    Dooling adds nothing positive to the team except he has fouls to use. He's easily the most physically awkward guard in the league - maybe ever, which makes watching him painful.
