The Boston Celtics landed a lottery-type talent with the 27th overall pick when they took Texas A&M's Robert Williams. The kid can play.

Judging by one of his tweets from a couple of months ago, Williams should be a good fit with Celtics point guard Kyrie Irving. A little too good in fact.

In a tweet from April, Williams declared that the Earth is flat.

Just in case you were wondering how that relates to Irving, the All-Star point guard has expressed his belief that the earth might be flat on numerous occasions.

Yikes. If Williams is serious, come on man.

The Earth is not flat. Period.

At least this should make for interesting conversation between him and Kyrie next year.

Oh, and the responses to the tweet from other Twitter users were money.
