‘We’ve had as much of a back-and-forth as you can have off the court,’ says Boston Celtics forward Grant Williams of being roasted by Steph Curry

·2 min read

Boston Celtics forward Grant Williams is known for being talkative, and sometimes his loquacious nature can get him into situations like the one he recently found himself in at the 2022 ESPYs. The Tennessee product was being roasted by the Dubs’ Stephen Curry after Williams suggested the Golden State Warriors were not the better team despite beating Boston in six games.

Asked by Bryan Kalbrosky about the roast in a recent interview on our sister site For The Win, Williams shed some light on how he was taking getting cooked by Chef Curry. “I was laughing,” claimed Williams. “Steph is a fellow Charlotte guy. It was funny and goofy.”

“We’ve had as much of a back-and-forth as you can have off the court,” he added. “I feel like that’s my thing.”

“It’s good but you have to compete as hard as you can when you see each other,” noted the Celtics swingman, acknowledging it’s not enough to say things, but that they also need to be backed up by excellent play.

“It’s been a fun summer,” offered Williams, probably smiling.
