NBA legends didn't stop roasting Derrick White for his hairline

During this year's postseason, the Celtics were a must-watch team as they went all the way to the Eastern Conference finals against the Miami Heat. Before that, they met the Atlanta Hawks in the first round, with Derrick White having some decent games.

After his postgame interview, Shaquille O'Neal and Charles Barkley couldn't help but make fun of the defensive guard. Barkley even went as far as comparing the guard to ESPN's Stephen A. Smith due to his hairline.

"Is that Derrick White or Stephen A. (Smith)?" Chuck laughed. "Stephen A. playing for the Celtics."

Following their postseason run, White finally shaved off his head and went bald.
