After initially declining to comment, Williams expressed that he thinks the team is standing behind him. Williams said he spoke with both Celtics’ president Danny Ainge and coach Doc Rivers about his future with the team, and called the talks “encouraging.”“I feel like if I had done something wrong you wouldn’t be seeing me right now,” Williams said.While Williams was grateful to be back in Boston, he took issue with how the arrest was portrayed in the media. From the Boston Globe:“Very frustrating, because I was there, I know what happened, and I know what didn’t happen,” he said. “To anybody reading, and everybody that’s writing these stories, it makes me out to be this bandit, whatever that guy’s name is in Public Enemy No. 1, a long time ago, John Dillinger. It made me be like I was him. It’s very frustrating, because I know what happened, and what didn’t happen. All you can do is pray and move forward, that’s what I’ve been doing my whole life [anytime] something happens.”It’s unclear if or when the prosecution will make a decision on charging Williams. If convicted he would face possible jail time and suspension by the NBA. The Celtics’ organization will be able to make its intentions clear on June 30th, following that date $200,000 of Williams’ $947,907 contract becomes guaranteed.Follow Jordan on Twitter: @HiggsOnHoops
