Photo: Former Kentucky G James Young Is Wearing The "Succeed and Proceed" Tee At Celtics' Practice

James Young took John Calipari's "succeed and proceed" mantra to heart, as the talented guard spent one season at Kentucky before leaving for the NBA. The 6-foot-6, 215-pound shooting guard went No. 17 to the Boston Celtics in the 2014 NBA Draft. 

So it makes sense that Young, who averaged 14.3 points a game for the Wildcats in 2013-14, would sport one of Kentucky's famed T-shirts

Here's the shooting guard wearing a Kentucky "Succeed And Proceed" tee at a Celtics' practice.

Young's team, the Celtics, could stand to do some more succeeding in the NBA Playoffs. Boston currently trails Cleveland, 2-0, in the first round.
