How the NBA Grizzlies’ Pondexter Scored a Date with Miss Tennessee on Twitter

After a disappointing end to his third NBA season and a long summer ahead, Quincy Pondexter decided to go directly from the court to courtship. Apparently in 2013, chivalry is still alive and well via Twitter. And being in Memphis, where better for him to start his quest for love than Tennessee?


 
Well Quincy, it turns out that would be Chandler Lawson:

Almost feeling sorry for the guy, Chris Vernon — host of the midday show on 92.9 FM ESPN in Memphis, offered to set up a dating show for the swingman. Pondexter instantly agreed and things started to get out of hand fast until Miss Tennessee stepped in.

And you’re probably thinking well sure he’s a 6-foot-6 pro athlete pulling in $2.2 million next year, this would never happen to an average Joe, right? Well, apparently he’s not the only one on Twitter with a bit of swag, meet this scrawny little college freshman, Spike Albrecht, long shot looking to holler at another model Kate Upton:
“@KateUpton hey saw you at the game last night, thanks for coming out! Hope to see you again”


 
But what do Pondexter’s teammates and boys think about his prospects?


 
Ouch that’s harsh, but good luck!
