A Celtics fan took it to the next level on Wednesday night, painting a white Derrick White jersey onto his very pale skin. ABC cameras caught the extreme Bostonian early in Game 3, shirtless and admonishing his fellow fans while holding a beer.

Celtics fans were on championship form — by their standards anyway — Wednesday, fueling the home side to a scorching start against the Golden State Warriors. “F—k you Draymond” and “Draymond sucks” Singing rang out again and again, as Boston’s Public Enemy #1 was booed at almost every touch. (Celtics fans have spent the long breaks between games trying to convince themselves that Green is an international war criminal because of his propensity to set up moving screens and work the umpires.)

Another white-on-white Celtics fan attracted attention on Wednesday night. A bald man in a shamrock jacket and a massive green Celtics necklace keep pointing at opponents and earned camera time. He’s apparently been making the pointing move since at least that playoff run and has been attending the Celtics’ home game for years.

TD Garden rules require no shirts or common sense.


The Celtics built a lead up to 18 points early in Game 3 thanks largely to 22 points from Jaylen Brown, but the Warriors cut the lead to single digits thanks to hot shooting from Steph Curry.
