Boston Celtics rookie Romeo Langford is still progressing in the right direction from his thumb injury.  With all of the excitement in the off-season, have Celtics fans forgotten about the 2019 first round pick?

The Boston Celtics selected Romeo Langford with their first pick in the 2019 NBA draft.  Sometimes I think Langford is often forgotten about, partly because of his injury, but also due to the early success and love from the fans that the other rookies in his class are receiving.

Putting the rookie class aside for a minute, the Celtics have had a busy off-season.  The singing’s of both Kemba Walker and Enes Kanter, and also the emergence of Tacko Fall, certainly take the attention away from everything else going on in the background.

Langford is still recovering from his torn ligament surgery on his thumb; an ongoing injury that happened in college.  Even with the surgery the Boston Celtics still wanted him, and think they “stole” him at #14 in the draft.  His draft class that includes Grant Williams, Carsen Edwards, and Tremount Waters, seems to look like one of the best in a few years.

Not being able to see Langford play during summer league has made it difficult to see what he brings to the table.  If you’re Brad Stevens, Danny Ainge, or just a fan of Indiana basketball, then you’ve probably heard of Romeo Langford for a long time now.  He is a legend in the state of Indiana, and Brad we all know how much love Brad Stevens has for Indiana basketball.

With a pretty stacked team, there is really no need to rush the process on Langford’s thumb injury.  Giving him time to learn how to shoot again, is going to be key in this process.  At 6’6” and 215 pounds, Langford has great NBA size for his shooting/wing positions.  It’s going to be exciting to see what Langford can do for the team!
