How the Boston Celtics' success hinges on the health of Robert Williams III


If the Boston Celtics had a healthy Robert Williams III in the 2022 NBA Finals, the club might very well be on the hunt for Banner 19 this season. Instead, the Celtics lost to the Golden State Warriors in six games.

Now, the Celtics have Timelord back in the fold, healthy if seemingly a bit slower as he works his way into full NBA regular-season shape.

Having the Louisiana native healthy and available in the postseason should be a top priority for the team. His vertical spacing and otherworldly defense is critical for the Celtics to be the best version of themselves when it counts.

To talk over just how important a healthy Timelord is for Boston's title aspirations, the folks over at the Celtics Blog "First to the Floor" podcast got together and created the clip embedded below.

To hear what they had to say about Timelord's import to the Celtics, give it a watch!
