Boston Celtics reserve point guard Terry Rozier has built a following from his latest playoff performances. Rozier's emergence from reserve role to starter made the Celtics get by without star point guard Kyrie Irving, especially in the first round against the Milwaukee Bucks and the second round versus the Philadelphia 76ers. He put up 16.5 points, 5.3 rebounds, 5.7 assists, and 1.3 steals per game during the playoffs.
Now a household name due to his playoff heroics, it is safe to assume Rozier's career is on an upward trajectory. His newly found fame and attention has been an avenue for other platforms besides NBA basketball. For example, Drake brought Rozier on stage at his concert on Saturday night:
Drake brought Terry Rozier on stage at the Garden last night to get buckets. Terry’s mom @GINATUCKER1 sent me this cool vid of it. Must have been those shady state fair rims, ha, but still cool. pic.twitter.com/LaRGgvEndf

Rozier represented a girl named Anna Oliviera for a $25,750 half-court challenge. Rozier attempted a free throw for $250, a 3-point shot for $500, and a half-court shot for $25,000, but unfortunately there just wasn’t anything going for the Celtics guard this time. Despite the missed buckets, Oliviera still got an OVO jersey as a consolation prize.
As funny as this was, fans aren’t going to be worried about the new season looming with the Celtics nearing full strength as Kyrie Irving and Gordon Hayward return to the fold from their respective injuries.
