Allow Williams to live better with Kemba Walker during the pandemic

All I can imagine is the scene from Step Brothers where Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly rearrange their bedroom to make adequate space for other activities to do together.

It wasn’t exactly like that for Boston Celtics teammates Grant Williams and Kemba Walker, but they were roommates during the quarantine when Williams moved to Walker’s residence in Charlotte with the NBA en masse.

“It was great. Just going out, relaxing. Being able to get to know each other and train together,” Williams said in a video conference on Zoom with the media on Thursday. “We are quite isolated and we have the means, so we have weights and other things. It was only a very good decision. He really offered it because I was even discussing going home and I was worried because I knew I would be inside and outside the house working in different places if possible or going somewhere to stay active. I was going to be with my grandparents. He said, “If you want, you can always be with me.”

“I accepted it in the offer and I am grateful for him. As far as I speak, I am glad that he also took it into consideration. From time to time we got up together and he has a field out, so we were also able to shoot. “

Williams is enjoying this opportunity as a novice to share the same living space with the four-time All-Star guard. In addition to participating in some basketball activities and shooting down films, Williams is only grateful that the veteran took him with open arms.

“Overall he is one of the best humans I have ever encountered during this process,” said 21-year-old Williams, whom the Celtics have compiled 22nd in the draft last June from Tennessee and have played a minor role on the bench so far in this season with an average of 3.5 points and 2.7 rebounds per game. “He’s a genuine boy. So all he does is just relax, play and watch movies, basically. You do everything he can to train, so that’s all.”

Williams’ current board and lodging situation is unique, but he said that once the NBA suspended its season starting March 11, Celtics players made their own decisions as to where they wanted to be closed with the NBA.

“Some kids stayed in Boston, others went to other places and went home to their families or went to places with fewer rules so they could get into the gym and stay fit,” Williams said.

With some recently opened NBA facilities for players to come back and shoot, Williams is confident that when the Celtics reopen their doors – Danny Ainge, president of Celtics, said it could happen soon – they will do it safely and with the best interest of the player at heart.

Williams is very open to the idea of ​​playing Disney World and having a centralized position for NBA activity. As the NBA appears to be approaching a return, Williams is ready to make the most of what the situation has to offer.

“I feel like we’re all professionals and we would have trusted each other and the league to keep us safe,” Williams said. “They will help mitigate the risk as much as possible. So I know at least for myself, I trust the Boston Celtics and that they will have everything under control.”
