Celtics Rookie Robert Williams Has Lost Wallet Twice Since Being Drafted
Robert Williams is having a rough go as he transitions into NBA life.
The Boston Celtics rookie missed his introductory conference call with reporters after he overslept, and if that wasn’t bad enough, he then was absent from the team’s first summer league practice after missing a flight, and just to make matters worse, he misplaced his wallet, not once, but twice.
According to Mass Live, Williams left his wallet at his hotel while attending a Celtics Shamrock Foundation event, but staffers were able to locate it and return it to him. 24 hours later, the rookie big man was preparing to leave for the airport to hop on a flight back to Boston, but realized he had misplaced his wallet once again.
This time around, former Texas A&M forward D.J. Hogg had it, but he was three hours away in Dallas.
“I was like, ‘Yo bro, I can’t get my wallet. D.J., send me my wallet,'” Williams said.
But Williams said Hogg told him overnight shipping was too expensive.
“I was like ‘Bro, you have money bro,'” Williams said. “But he just brought it out here (to Las Vegas).”
Williams is currently trying to figure out ways to keep his wallet on him.
“I got to start gluing it to my phone or something,” he said.
