Celtics Rookie James Young Has His Own Logo


Tom Brady isn’t the only Boston athlete (though he’s definitely the hunkiest) to have his own logo.

Celtics rookie James Young has his own, personalized logo. Young wore the U-shaped symbol, which spells out JY-1, occasionally during his freshman season at the University of Kentucky. Young wore the uniform No. 1 at the school.

According to SB Nation, Young has expressed interest in having his own clothing line in the future. The No. 17 pick in the 2014 NBA Draft sported the logo on a shirt when signing on with Jay-Z’s management company, Roc Nation. He joins Kevin Durant as Roc Nation’s only other NBA client.


The logo is not new. Young debuted it when he committed to Wildcats out of high school. The rapper Drake, an undisputed huge Kentucky fan, wore a shirt with Young’s logo on it to the national championship game between Kentucky and UConn.

Unfortunately, Young will have to wear No. 13 for the Celtics. No. 1 is retired in honor of the team’s first owner, Walter Brown.
