Ainge seemingly feels Langford could have made an impact against Miami, though. “Going into the season, we liked our bench,” Ainge said. “Going into these big playoff games, were always going to have three of the five main players on the court at all times. We were going to play center by committee, and we liked our core players opposite them. “But because we had injuries with Kemba, injuries with Gordon and injuries with Romey, that hurt us. And that exposed our bench a little bit at that point. ” … He gets hurt the first game of the playoffs, and that set us back a little bit.”

While fellow rookies Grant Williams, Carsen Edwards, Tremont Waters and Tacko Fall earned headlines at the NBA Summer League, Langford was sidelined by offseason surgery on his right thumb. Now, months later, Langford is nursing a tweaked left groin that has kept him out of live action during the first two days of training camp. Neither he nor the Celtics appear to be very concerned with the most recent setback. Langford told Celtics.com that he “should be fine coming up here pretty soon.”

During a recent appearance on the Knuckleheads podcast with Quentin Richardson & Darius Miles, Kemp recalled a meeting with Bird that has stuck with him to this day. “We were playing the Boston Celtics, so the great Larry Bird. I’m from Indiana and Larry’s from Indiana,” Kemp said. “I knew about the history of Larry but I didn’t realize how he really got down. Larry gave me 50 [points] in three quarters. And he talked to me the whole entire game. He asked me at the jump ball, ‘You’re the one that broke all my records in high school right?’ and I said ‘Yeah, that’s me.’ and he said ‘I’ve got something for you tonight.'”
