Getty Jayson Tatum and Grant Williams of the Boston Celtics.

Over the past few seasons, the Boston Celtics have had a lot of players come and go from the roster. In some cases, such as big man Al Horford, some have even left the team and returned at a later date. The point is, plenty of players have passed through the organization.

During that time, those players have formed close relationships with one another. Guys like Kemba Walker, Kyrie Irving, and others are still close with some of the core members of the Celtics. And the other day, one former Celtics got into a funny Twitter argument with forward Grant Williams.

Williams has begun streaming on Twitch, and in turn, he gets the chance to speak to a live audience. Well, on a recent stream, Williams called out former Celtics guard Josh Richardson, challenging him to a game of FIFA. Richardson didn’t take kindly to the call-out, though.

“PIZZA.?!?!? Nah no way he can’t be talking about me . We can put a thousand on it right now @Grant2Will,” Richardson tweeted.

It’s clear that it’s all jokes between the two former teammates, but it was still funny to watch the interaction unfold. Richardson was responding to Williams’ challenge because he didn’t think the wager was fruitful enough.

Williams’ Original Challenge for Richardson

While playing a game of Fall Guys on stream, the topic of FIFA came up. Williams called out Richardson, who was his teammate on the Celtics earlier this past season and also attended the same college as Williams, as both are Tennessee Volunteers.

“Celtic, Dallas Maverick, Philadelphia 76er, Miami Heat, and Tennessee legend. Anytime you want to play FIFA, hit my line. Simple and plain. Because, at the end of the day, you will get pizza,” Williams proclaimed.

Where the pizza came into the equation is unknown, but Williams is fairly confident that he can take down Richardson in FIFA. But once Richardson responded to his challenge on Twitter, Williams saw it and complained that the veteran wing always needs to bring money into the equation.

“???????????????????????? d*** why it always gotta be money with you,” Williams responded.

???????????????????????? damn why it always gotta be money with you https://t.co/jeUDW2Nry9

Maybe sometime soon we’ll get to see Williams and Richardson battle one another in FIFA for… a slice of pizza? Or, if Richardson gets his way, they could be playing for a thousand dollars. Regardless, the match would undoubtedly be a fun one to watch.

This isn’t the first time Williams has called out a fellow Celtic on Twitter, either, as he seems to enjoy causing a ruckus on the internet.

Williams Calls Out Jayson Tatum

After recent photos of Tatum working out at the gym went somewhat viral on Twitter, Williams made sure to give his input. In one of the images, Tatum was seen using 75-lb weights, which Williams quickly pointed out to be light numbers.

 “75 ???????????? @jaytatum0,” Williams tweeted.

75 ???????????? @jaytatum0 https://t.co/QoKhZZRuxU

— Grant Williams (@Grant2Will) August 3, 2022

Tatum quickly responded, claiming that it was just a warm-up set, but regardless, seeing Williams relentlessly troll his teammates and former teammates on Twitter is hilarious to watch.

The only question is, who will be his next target? Keep an eye on the Celtics forward’s Twitter feed to find out.

Bears Starter Calls Out NFL, Team for Reckless Choice

The Chicago Bears won their preseason debut against the Kansas City Chiefs, 19-14, but the team wound up going viral for all the wrong reasons.

Well before the game began, photos of the shoddy conditions of Soldier Field made the rounds on Twitter. It’s no secret that the Bears are likely planning to leave the stadium in favor of a new one that has yet to be constructed in Arlington Heights, Illinois, but that’s years down the road. In the meantime, they still have to play their home games at Soldier Field, and that could prove dangerous.

The week leading up to the game, singer Elton John held a concert at the legendary venue the week before the game, and it left the field in glaringly bad conditions.

After the game, Bears kicker Cairo Santos had some words about the condition of the field.

Santos: ‘It’s a Reckless Thing’

“It’s reckless that we have … big-time players on both teams out there, and it’s too bad if the field becomes an issue where there’s an injury and that star is out for the season,” Santos told Jason Lieser of the Chicago Sun-Times. “It’s a reckless thing that they’re not taking care of it.”

“It’s better for me to just accept it and learn how to overcome it, which is what I’ve done, versus whining and making excuses about it,” Santos added. “It hasn’t been something that’s concerned me. … I don’t think that field could cause me to miss kicks.”

Bears K Cairo Santos, to the Sun-Times:
“It’s reckless that we have…big-time players on both teams out there, and it’s too bad if the field becomes an issue where there’s an injury and that star is out for the season… It’s a reckless thing that they’re not taking care of it."

— Jason Lieser (@JasonLieser) August 13, 2022

That’s true. Santos made 15 of 16 field goal attempts at Soldier Field in 2020 and last season, he made 9 out of 11. But his point about safety is a strong and important one.

Most Bears players seem resigned about it — they know they have to play on the shoddy turf, so they’re not complaining.

“It’s kind of always been like that,” quarterback Justin Fields said after Chicago’s preseason win over Kansas City, noting the field was in better condition during the team’s first preseason game than it was during family fest on Tuesday, August 9. “I’m just glad it was better than it was earlier this week because it wasn’t the best. The grass could definitely be better, for sure.”

Others Call Out Poor Quality of Soldier Field

Former Cleveland Browns center J.C. Tretter, a free agent who is currently serving as president of the NFL Players Association, also chimed in on Twitter:

“The NFL said that this field met minimum testing standards. We clearly need to re-evaluate what is an acceptable surface for players to compete on. We need new testing metrics looking at the performance and safety of every field. The NFL can and should do better.”

NFL agent David Canter, who represents three Bears players (safeties DeAndre Houston-Carson and Dane Cruikshank, along with defensive lineman Khyiris Tonga) also shared some critical thoughts on Twitter:

Game should be postponed. Player safety should he tantamount to everything. We know it’s a pipe dream but this isn’t safe https://t.co/NevN7G3q7b

— David Canter (@davidcanter) August 13, 2022

Chiefs coach Andy Reid chimed in, too:

Andy Reid on the state of the Soldier Field turf: "It's better than my high school field. Not much."

— Matt Derrick (@mattderrick) August 13, 2022

For his part, Bears head coach Matt Eberflus played the diplomatic newbie card. “I’m new here so I don’t know the situations, but I know the guys are trying to do their best, and the playing surface was passed by the NFL for us to be on,” Eberflus said after the game. “I thought it was firm and it was good, so that’s where we’ll leave it at.”

Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune noted that while more concerts are set to be held at the stadium in the coming weeks, the city still plans on getting the field in better shape by the time the regular season rolls around.

Soldier Field will be 100% re-sodded after Rammstein concert and before Sept 11 opener. That has been plan all along. You can’t just go to the sod store and replace your field without pre-planning. Field where stage was for Elton John was replaced before today’s game.

— Brad Biggs (@BradBiggs) August 13, 2022

Based on the attention the field conditions are getting, however, the league could be hearing from the NFLPA. Stay tuned.
