Batman in peril? C's coach shares his thoughts on Grant Williams nickname originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston

Grant Williams can do no wrong with his play of late for the Boston Celtics, especially when it comes to his defense on Milwaukee Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo.

His self-anointed nickname, however?

Celtics coach Ime Udoka doesn't seem to be buying in on the Batman.

"That's his own nickname he's given himself," Udoka said during an interview with Abby Chin during halftime of Game 3. "Grant likes to do all that. If he can produce on the court, we'll live with it."

It seems as though Williams is going to have to continue to produce like he has been -- if not an even higher level -- if he wants Batman forever.
