I don’t know how good No. 2 overall pick Derrick Williams is going to be as a pro. Probably pretty good, especially as a scorer, but we don’t know what his ceiling is.
Timberwolves fans, this however is a good sign.
First of many workouts with the Black mamba today.. Learning experiences.
If you’re wondering how that comes together, they share the same agent, Rob Pelinka.
Not to sound like his old Nike ad, but go ahead and hate Kobe. You still have to respect his game. More than that, you have to respect his work ethic on his craft and his desire to be a student of the game.
That is a good mentor for a rookie. If Williams keeps his eyes open, he can learn a lot.
