Coby White has been an amazing ambassador for the University of North Carolina, and his infectious celebrations of all his teammates accomplishments were one of the trademarks of his freshman season at UNC.
That attitude was on display once again Thursday night when Coby was meeting the press after being selected seventh overall by the Chicago Bulls. His teammate, Cameron Johnson, was selected by the Phoenix Suns while Coby was talking to the media and his reaction was absolutely adorable.

I’m sure fans of other teams may feel like the whole Carolina Family thing is a lot of lip service, but there are moments like these that remind us that it’s very much something these guys legitimately embrace. White’s overwhelming joy for Johnson is unmistakable.
This is what it means to be a Tar Heel. We couldn’t be happier for both these guys getting to live out their dreams at the next level.
