Terrence Williams Has Everything to Prove
(Terrence) Williams, who signed a multi-year deal with the team in early March, hopes to remain in Boston. He sees many similarities between Rivers and Pitino — “They are defensive-minded, whatever they say, that’s what goes” — and believes he can benefit greatly from Rivers’ coaching expertise.
He also knows his success is resting in his own shoulders. It always has.
“I have to prove everything,” he said matter-of-factly. “What have I proved? Nothing. I just proved I can wear number 55 and some funny looking shoes. I feel like I’m starting over. I feel like I’m turning 21 again on Draft Night and just getting drafted. To me, to be honest, I feel like I have to prove everything. To me, in my mind, I’m knocking down my shot consistently but I want the world to see that. I want the world to see that he’s improved on his shot, that he can handle the ball.
“Until then, there’s a lot to prove.”
