There are many ways that young athletes react to getting drafted in their respective sport. Some laugh, some cry, and then there always seem to be hugs, handshakes and high-fives. As of last night, former Louisville point guard Terry Rozier has raised the bar in terms of celebration.
Apparently, at a draft gathering with friends and family in Cleveland, Rozier received the call from the Boston Celtics, who drafted him with the 16th pick, and then jumped into the nearby pool while still wearing his suit.

While some may be shocked that Rozier would jump fully clothed into a pool after getting drafted, cut the kid a break.
It was a once in a lifetime moment and emotions were running high, especially since the legendary Celtics were the team that took a flyer on him. That said, he can do as he pleases with regards to how he jumps in a pool.
Oh, and with an NBA contract headed his way, he’ll easily be able to get the suit dry cleaned, or even buy a new one. Or two. Or five.
