Robert Williams III is an American professional basketball player for the Boston Celtics of the National Basketball Association (NBA). He played college basketball for the Texas A&M Aggies.
Due to doubts about his work ethic, Williams was taken by the Boston Celtics as the 27th overall choice in the 2018 NBA draft rather than as a lottery pick. Williams was signed by the Boston Celtics on July 5, 2018.
Williams did not start out well, receiving criticism for arriving late and skipping team meetings.
He acquired the nickname “Time Lord” among Boston Celtics online fandoms as a result of his track record for skipping flights and video meetings.
Prior to being assigned to the Maine Red Claws on November 2, Williams made his professional debut on October 23, 2018, playing for four minutes during the Celtics’ defeat to the Orlando Magic.
Williams split his time between the NBA and the G League in November and December before beginning to see more action with the Celtics after Al Horford suffered an injury.
