Celtics' rookie Robert Williams has apparently lost his wallet twice since being drafted (it was found and returned by other Celtics personnel each time).
Williams, the SEC Defensive Player of the Year, fell in the draft due to concerns over his focus and consistency, and as the summer rolls on we're seeing why. Roberts overslept his first conference call with the Celtics, then missed his flight to Boston for Summer League practice. Now we've learned that he misplaced his wallet twice over the span of month (neither times in El Segundo). These constant lapses of attention and commitment are alarming but that's why the Celtics were able to scoop him so late. Additionally, Williams has been dealing with popliteal artery entrapment syndrome (PAES), a rare vascular disease where the muscles and tendons in the knees are placed in such a way they constrict the popliteal artery during exercise, restricting blood flow to the calf and feet. He certainly has his work cut out for him if he wants to stick in the league.
