Grant Williams found an interesting way to pass some time during NBA hiatus

It looks like Grant Williams fancies himself as somewhat of a casting director.

Listen to your team news NOW.

The Celtics rookie broke out Space Jam on Saturday, and he decided to do an “If The Boston Celtics Were…” with the cast:

Taz — Marcus Smart

No-brainer. This might be the easiest casting decision in the history of film.

Lola Bunny — Jayson Tatum

Best player in the movie besides Michael Jordan. That’s not up for debate.

Daffy Duck — Grant cast himself

Self-deprecating, I can appreciate that. Not sure who else on the Celtics would fit as Daffy, if anyone does.

Bugs Bunny — Jaylen Brown

Outside of casting someone as MJ in this movie, this is the greatest compliment that can be bestowed upon anyone.

Michael Jordan — Kemba Walker

Move over LeBron James. (His Space Jam 2 is supposed to come out in 2021.)

Granny — Gordon Hayward

Hopefully, Hayward takes this the right way. “What’s the right way,” you ask? Good question — I have no idea.

Tweety — Tremont Waters

Never underestimate the little guy.

Stan Podolak — Brad Wanamaker

This is cold. Wayne Knight might be more of a nuisance as Podolak than he is as Newman in Seinfeld. 

Monstars — LeBron James, Anthony Davis, Dwight Howard, Rajon Rondo and Kyle Kuzma

I would’ve cast Javale McGee over Dwight Howard, personally. Otherwise, his lineup of forwards is solid — especially the Kuzma casting.

And for some reason, there are times I forget Rondo is on the Lakers. So hearing his name caught me off guard. That being said, definitely the right pick.
