Rivers: Williams is 'Terrific'

Twice, the Boston Celtics had a chance to take Marcus Williams in last June's draft, but passed on him at #7 and again at #21, trading for Sebastian Telfair and picking Rajon Rondo. Williams himself thought he would wind up in Beantown, even said so in his NBA Draft blog. Now, Celtic Coach Doc Rivers comes close to admitting his team made a mistake, calling Williams "terrific" and saying he's the reason the Nets are in games. Meanwhile, Rondo is in Rivers' doghouse.
