ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — Finding a date for prom can be nerve-wracking, but Raquel Smith, a high school student in Michigan had a great idea: Ask Andre Drummond from the Detroit Pistons. Drummond agreed on one condition: She needed to get 12,000 retweets.
She ended up just a few tweets shy of 12K, but Drummond went along anyway…
According to the Detroit Free-Press, Drummond’s footwear was more impressive than his car…
“He was absolutely amazing,” Watson said. “He stayed at prom almost two hours, was social with everyone, he was very nice. Of course even the adults wanted pictures and he was very accommodating. He was just an unbelievable.”
Still, Drummond’s Porsche had some stiff competition.
“He didn’t even have the nicest car there,” Watson joked. “We had a couple of Bentleys. My favorite was a convertible Rolls-Royce with Illinois plates. We had three students who came in Tesla cars.”
But Drummond’s Louis Vuitton footwear? That was a thing to admire, Watson said.
“All the kids were talking about the shoes,” he said.
