Athletically Williams has few peers with his leaping ability and quickness. Extremely mobile player who runs the court with ease and has no problems getting out on the break. One of the best shot blockers in college where he has great natural instincts. Possesses all the physical tools to excel, long wingspan, quick hands, timing and the ability to produce multiple jumps in succession. Offensively Williams has improved greatly adding a solid jump hook and decent turnaround with his back to the basket.
His work ethic and commitment to basketball are very much in question, and his dismissal surely cost his draft stock consideerably ... Doesnt always play the game with intensity often its not uncommon for him to get out worked by players with lesser talent
