Williams doesn't say anything controversial. He's laid back and careful with his words. But he has his own style. He a fun loving kid who's having fun.
Here's some of Sean's group sitdown with the media yesterday, the day after his bust-out block party against the Hornets:
What's been the feedback from teammates and coaches?
"It’s all love. All love."
What's the best advice he's gotten?
"Be a professional all the time."
What's that mean?
"I don’t know, man. I just try to follow their lead, ya know?"
You look tired?
"My head hurts, I didn’t eat nothing this morning. I caught traffic. Usually I’ll get Dunkin' Donuts or something."
You didn't want to be late?
"Nah, I don’t wanna be late noooo moooore."
How many calls did you get after the Hornets game?
"Man, my people don’t like me because I don’t answer the phone or return phone calls or nothing. They just send me text messages, be like, ‘We love you, man.'"
Did you hear the crowd?
"When I’m in the game I don’t hear too much of anything. My AAU coach came down to watch me play last night and I’m glad that was the game he came to see. He was like when you step on the court and you do some things they get really krunk out there."
They were krunk?
This is the beauty of the blog. We get to use the word krunk.
If we put that in a story, a desk guy would ask if he meant drunk or is there another word we could use. Then you would see it like this, "they get really [excited] out there," or "they get really [pumped] out there."
No. They got krunk. We like that. That's off the hook. We can still use that expression, right?
Never mind. Krunk is the word. We're going to try and find a way to use that somewhere.
Williams is back in Boston and looking forward to the game, more so since he's in the rotation. The former Boston College skywalker was asked this morning about it. He's giving out about 10 tickets.
"I just can't wait to play the Celtics," he said. "Boston fans, they know me here, watching me in college and whatnot. it's a new level and I can't wait to play."
Williams recalled one of his last games here before being thrown off the time for violating team rules:
"We played Duquesne and I had like a triple double," he said.
In that Dec. 28, 2006 game, Williams had 19 points, 13 blocks and 10 rebounds.
Just before we got on the plane, we noticed "U.S. News and World Report" in the magazine store with the cover story: "America's Best Leaders 2007." To our surprise, Jim Dolan, Isiah Thomas and Stephon Marbury didn't make the list.
Jamaal Magloire is rarely quiet, but he had little to say about being benched for the first time in his career in the last game against the Hornets. Our guess is he's not happy but not ready to blow up - yet.
The amazing stat of the day and you can credit Williams for some of this: The Nets began Wednesday tied for second in the NBA at 6.29 blocked shots per game. They were 27th each of the last two seasons, swatting 3.33 and 3.39 per, respectively.
Here was a surprising exchange: Got in the cab outside the hotel and asked to be taken to the TD BankNorth Garden. He asked if the Celtics were playing tonight? We said yes. He asked how they were doing, how many wins they have? So the Jersey guy told the Boston resident how the Celtics are doing.
Always thinking of the fan, the Nets are coming to the rescue of would-be theatergoers who can't see any shows because of the Broadway stangehand strike. They're offering a 50 percent discount on select tickets to Friday's game against Orlando and Saturday's against Miami.
