Derrick White deserves his flowers for how well he has played for the Boston Celtics of late

There have been moments when Derrick White wasn’t just unfairly dinged, but the Colorado native also was downright disrespected by some in the wider Celtics media sphere.

Now, it is clear the White trade was far from a disaster. He has been playing at an All-Star level in recent games just as the club needs him to do so. Finally, White is getting some love from fans and the media a little more than a year after being dealt to the team at the 2022 NBA trade deadline.

Among them is NBC Sports Boston’s Chris Forsberg, who recently gave him his flowers for how well White has been playing for Boston of late.

To hear more of why Forsberg is so enamored with how White has been playing for the Celtics, watch the clip embedded above.
