James Young shows his off-court game.

hegotgame

If you didn’t like James Young before, first of all, I don’t believe you.  And secondably, he’s giving us even more reasons to think he’s going to be a ton of fun to have around campus.  I know, the McDonald’s All-American game is over, and the Jordan Brand Classic hasn’t been played yet, but in between those two, Young has showed off a completely different kind of game.  The only thing even close to being as important as awards season for a high school ball player is prom season, and he’s trynna make sure he’s got something to show for both.  Check out this exchange with the 2012 Miss Kentucky:

 

 

 

It’s hard to say if Young’s gamble will pay off, but at least one person is already impressed:

 

Can we somehow swing it where all our recruits end up at the same prom?  That sounds like a movie plot waiting to unfurl, complete with all kinds of shenanigans.

Good luck, James.  Hope it works out, but if it doesn’t, respect for going for it right off the bat.  Either way, enjoy the springtime; there’s romance in the air.  I guess that’s why they call it “Twitterpated.”  Although maybe a DM would have sufficed.

    I know Jessica has a boyfriend, but I think it would be a great gesture for her to fulfill his dreams LOL

    Thought-provoking, poignant this has to be the greatest use of Twitter since the Arab Spring.. Simply don’t do any real investigation or diligence check a handful of recruits’ twitter accounts and see if you can squeeze a post about it. Nice work and nice example set for all readers.

    These tweets are awesome for two reasons: 1. He is showing that he’s got swag, and 2. He is already repping BBN by asking Miss Kentucky. Well played young sir. Well played…

    I just noticed that before he tweeted her he had to ask who Miss Kentucky was. Makes it even more awesome.

    James, feel free to call me any time for some advice on boating this bass. I’m an expert on it! Hint – offer her a ride, and take her to Taco Bell for some late night Cool Ranch Doritos Locos Tacos.

    I know Jessica very well. Very involved with her boyfriend who is a very high member of McConnell’s staff in D.C. Plus she has appearences scheduled every weekend.

    She won’t be attending the prom with Mr. Young.

    17) I don’t think he was seriously looking for a romantic date. But it would be rather swag to show up to Prom with Miss Kentucky on your arm for an allstar show.

    If does Proms, maybe she’ll do Fetish Balls too. hmmmm

    17) Well she is a great and fun kid so who knows? She received both a full volleyball and acedemic scholorship to Georgetown. Chose the acedemics. To fulfill her obligations to her Miss Kentucky crown, she put off studying at Oxford for a year. A really, really smart kid. She finished top 15 at Miss America.

    @2014 Champs: Seriously? Andre Dawkins? That’s hardly an impact move. Where the f was he going to go? I’m more concerned they have Rodney Hood eligible. Dawkins is garbage – ask any Duke fan.
