James Young also made the rounds at the Draft Combine today, and predictably, was asked about sitting next to Rihanna at an NBA Playoff game a few weeks ago. The pictures are well-known by now, particularly the one in which James seems to be staring at her…tank top. Young swore to reporters that he was actually just looking at the ground:
“It might have looked like I was looking, but I was looking at the ground,” Young protested. “They made it look like I was staring at her, but I wasn’t.”
Sure…anyways, James said that he didn’t want to bother Rihanna too much. “I talked to her a little bit,” Young said. “I didn’t want to sweat her too much with everybody around her talking to her and stuff like that.” However, when they did speak, James said she was “real nice” and “real sweet.”
Because that’s what all sweet, nice girls look like.
