Louisville guard Terry Rozier was selected a little earlier than widely expected in Thursday’s NBA draft, so how did he celebrate?

Why, just a little jump into the pool—with his draft suit on.

The Boston Celtics drafted Rozier with the No. 16 pick, slightly higher than many experts expected.’s Chris Mannix was surprisied as well.

“Wow. Didn’t see this coming,” he wrote. “Rozier drew praise during pre-draft workouts and performed well as the Cardinals' primary ballhandler last season. He’s a defensive-minded guard with great length, but it’s hard to see how Rozier fits in Boston, which is loaded with young talent in the backcourt, a group headlined by Marcus SmartAvery Bradley and Isaiah Thomas. Danny Ainge is a trade-happy GM, who tried hard to get into the top 10 tonight. He likely has to make a move now to clear some minutes.”

Rozier has plenty of time to warrant the Celtics’ pick, and if he continues to exhibit this kind of enthusiasm, it feels safe to say he’ll be able to do just that.

The suits at the NBA draft did not disappoint
