The Kings Helped Play Match-Maker For A Fan By Drafting De’Aaron Fox

The Sacramento Kings were rumored to be enamored with Kentucky point guard De’Aaron Fox throughout the draft process, and on Thursday, the organization landed the player they desired. That, of course, is a fantastic basketball scenario, and when coupled with a strong draft elsewhere, the Kings drew rave reviews throughout the NBA world. However, it was a particularly great night for one member of the Kings’ fan base.

The young fan in question was banking on the Kings drafting Fox, and he put forth a proposition on Twitter that included asking his crush on a date following the draft if it came to pass.

From there, the Kings got involved, asking the fan for updates on what transpired after they selected Fox on Thursday.

In beautiful fashion, the fan posted screenshots of the exchange between he and his crush, and in the end, it worked out splendidly.

Obviously, the fan was thrilled beyond measure that he picked up a lunch date with his crush, but for good measure, De’Aaron Fox himself stamped the exchange with his personal approval.

It is probably too early to call this a love story for all time, but the Sacramento Kings brought a couple of crazy kids together by simply adding their favorite NBA Draft prospect to the fold.
