TL played mostly mop up minutes, but his Block% would have been the highest of all time for a rookie if he played enough minutes and blocked shots at the same rate. Of course, many of those blocks were in garbage time.

TL blocked a higher percentage of shots than MR, 12.5% to 10%, and blocked shots at a higher rate, 5.1/36min to 4.3/36min for Robinson. Williams' 1.3 bpg would have tied for 17th most in the league, and he got them in 8.8 mpg. I'm looking forward to him blocking a ton of shots if he can get on the floor for 20 minutes a game this season.

I'm looking forward to him blocking shots without automatically trying to send them into the fifth row. He would benefit from studying film of Bill Russell's defense.

Yeah, Williams obviously only played under 300 minutes, almost all in garbage time. His block rate was good, although the Celtics recovered fewer than half of them. Robinson played five times as many minutes, and the Knicks recovered 60% of his blocks (though I'm not sure how meaningful this stat is regardless).
