Irish Coffee: James Young’s love of cheeseburgers, other things we learned from Celtics rookie photo shoot

New Celtics  Marcus Smart and James Young participated in the NBA’s rookie photo shoot over the weekend and neither of them collapsed into a folding chair  a la Fab Melo, so there’s hope for them yet.
Once you’ve digested the photos above courtesy of the league’s various social media channels, let’s take a look at some of the highlights from Smart and Young’s contributions to the rookie class AMA on Reddit .
In an interview with SiriusXM NBA Radio , Smart reiterated his excitement about developing under Rondo, calling him “a premier point guard.” Smart also said he didn’t get comfortable in summer league until the penultimate game. In his final two summer league games, he shot 34.4 percent from the field. Don’t get too comfortable, apparently.
Speaking of comfort, the photo shoot marked the first time Smart donned an official Celtics  jersey. It felt good.
“You’re not used to hearing Boston Celtics  in the lottery, but it worked out perfect for me,” Smart told SiriusXM NBA Radio. “I’m able to go to a franchise that is at the top when you speak about basketball — 17 banners , the most retired jerseys — and it’s an honor to put on this Boston Celtics  uniform.”
Enough about cheeseburgers. Let’s watch Smart and Young dunk and dance.
