‘Time Lord' or ‘Lob Williams'? Robert Williams picks his preferred nickname


Has the Robert Williams nickname debate finally been put to rest?

Celtics fans have been referring to the rookie as "Time Lord," but Danny Ainge weighed in with a nickname idea of his own: "Lob Williams." Even Williams' sister contributed to the debate by submitting a nickname for the Celtics rookie.

Before Friday night's game vs the Hawks, Williams decided which nickname he preferred. "Time Lord" fans, block your ears...

Unfortunately for Williams, it doesn't seem like the "Time Lord" craze will end any time soon. The big man may even end up getting a fitting sponsorship out of this whole thing.
