Colorado University alum Derrick White and Boston Celtics teammate Jaylen Brown took in a close game between the Buffaloes and USC Saturday afternoon. They enjoyed each other’s company and more, meeting up with Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce, and even actor Will Ferrell in Boulder.
Brown first shared a picture of a smiling White on his Instagram story. The 2017 Colorado grad is shown pointing at the camera and donning a CU hat.
Before heading upstairs to meet up with Brown and White, 2008 NBA Finals champions Garnett and Pierce walked around the Buffaloes’ stadium together wearing sunglasses. Colorado State head coach Jay Norvell famously took a shot at Colorado head coach Deion Sanders ahead of their Sept. 16 matchup for wearing a hat and sunglasses during interviews, prompting CU supporters to do the same.
Garnett shared a video of him and Sanders sharing a few laughs together on Instagram Friday. The NBA Hall of Famer announced that he and Pierce, a fellow Naismith enshrinee, would be in attendance for the game.
Once the pair of Boston legends made their way to Brown and White, the four of them were filmed intently watching the game on the gridiron. They can be seen reacting to a play on the field and laughing together after Pierce thought the ball was intercepted.
Although White’s alma mater made it a close game in the second half, USC came out on top 48-41. The 29-year-old Celtics guard still clearly had a good time throughout the game surrounded by Boston basketball stars.
Brown and White even met up with a non-basketball celebrity while in Boulder. The two snapped a photo with actor Will Ferrell, who can be seen wearing a Trojans jacket. Ferrell is smiling big, but not so much White in his Colorado hat.
Brown and White are getting their off-the-court fun in ahead of the Celtics’ training camp kicking off on Saturday, Oct. 2.
