Jarrod Polson wants LeBron to text him

polson-tweet

We have a nominee for tweet of the century. Last night, after LeBron James stopped by the Joe Craft Center to scrimmage with the Cats, Jarrod Polson sent a tweet to LeBron asking the NBA superstar to text him because he lost his number. That means two things, both of which are awesome:

(A) LeBron James gave his number to Jarrod Polson.

(B) Jarrod Polson forgot to save LeBron James’ number.

This could be the biggest recruiting tool Kentucky has to offer. Think about it, a walk-on is playing pickup games with the best basketball player in the world on a Tuesday night in September, and exchanging phone numbers with him after the game. Name another school with that kind of connection.

I like to think these two will maintain a texting relationship once LeBron goes back to Miami.

    Is it illegal for a college player to have a pro player’s telephone number?

    If his nickname is Pole Cat, then LeBron remembers him when he calls.

    I wonder if Peyton Siva has T-Will’s phone number? On second thought, who gives a sh*t.

    So Matt, you say if UK continues to be incredibly boring, goes 3-9 and the stands are half empty for home games, Joker still stays?

    What is the biggest recruiting tool? UK can’t rely on history, tradition, 7 championships, historical domination of the SEC, the Craft Center, Rupp Arena, Calipari’s ability to put players in the NBA, a sparkling new Wildcat Lodge? We have to rely on LeBron giving his # out to a player? That’s what is gonna make players commit to UK? Getting the # of the biggest underachieving choker in the NBA? “Tweet of the Century” — I think not.

    Saw quite a few of the players at halftime of the game Saturday. They were being asked for pictures and autographs, but all of Polson’s were from the ladies. Boy gettin it done

    Good call #13. Seriously, guys, lighten up. Yes, we all know about the school’s rich basketball history and tradition, and No, I don’t like Lebron James that much, but celebrity sells. Its cool that even the little guy at the end of the bench is texting with Lebron James.

    When he is wearing “The Ring”, he will enter the competition for the best player. Until he wins, he is just really good.
