Here’s the fourteenth in the series: Terrence Williams.Terrence,I’m usually supportive of whatever “unknown” is currently languishing at the end of the Celtics’ bench. You came to the Celtics with a bit of a reputation (including the simultaneous compliment/insult of having been dubbed the D-League Oscar Robinson) but like many of those “unknowns” I had irrationally campaigned for before you, we had no idea what you could do on the floor for this team. Then after your nine point, four rebound, four assist breakout game against Phoenix you were no longer an unknown, and if I wasn’t building the Terrence Williams bandwagon I was certainly sitting shotgun. I was completely sold.Your passing is probably your greatest attribute, especially for a Celtics team that was struggling without anything remotely resembling a true point guard, and in that Phoenix game you showed the ability to consistently make the right play in transition. You’re like a locomotive heading to the hoop with your size and strength, and those same physical gifts help you hold your own on the boards. While you’re obviously not perfect, your all around game shows room for growth and that makes me excited. Your defense has been up and down and your jumpshot could be better, but thats nothing a little hard work can’t fix.And it’s been your willingness to put in hard work that has me most excited about your future. When Doc Rivers told you you were a point guard, a position you had never really played before, you committed to it. You put in late nights at the gym and your work ethic earned the respect and admiration of the team’s veterans. It’s that attitude that allowed you to grind your way into the Celtics playoff rotation, becoming the team’s seventh man ahead of Jordan Crawford and Courtney Lee.It’s rare to find a player with both the talent and drive you’ve shown during your short time in Boston. The Celtics have acquired troubled talent in free agency before (including my previous favorite former Nets draft pick, Sean Williams) but that work ethic sets you apart. I’ll admit I may be overselling you a bit, but what we’ve seen from you so far has me optimistic about your future (though perhaps its just the prospect of having a real backup point guard for once) and I’d be shocked if you weren’t back in Boston next year.Follow Jordan on Twitter: @HiggsOnHoops
