Boston Celtics veteran guard Derrick White recently participated in an event to get local Roxbury seniors playing basketball for fun and exercise. The Colorado native showed off his roundball abilities to get the crowd engaged according to a recent report from WCVB Channel 5 Boston’s Bob Halloran.
Said White at the event “that’s the thing about basketball. You can be a kid, you can be older, you can be my age, you can always learn something.” White, whose star has been rising this season with his best campaign yet as a Celtic unfolding, took an afternoon to give back to the community event.
One attendee voiced some concern over Boston’s recent play, but White reassured the camera that he didn’t think the concern was warranted.
“I think we’re going to be alright. We’re going to bond together, a close-knit group,” he added. “We’re going to have to stick with it and keep getting better.”
Take a look at the clip embedded above to hear the rest of what White had to say.
