High schooler asks to take girlfriend of Kings' Nik Stauskas to prom

Publish date:

How many hypothetical retweets on Twitter would it take to have Sacramento Kings guard Nik Stauskas' girlfriend Taylor Anderson accompany you to the high school prom?

Apparently, the answer is 10,000 ... and it's also no longer hypothetical.

After tweeting at Stauskas, who then OK'd it with Anderson, the number was set for the young man who boldly asked the NBA rookie. Just two hours later, after fellow NBA players and other athletes retweeted the request to help make his wish come true, he hit the magic number. He was even trending on Twitter at one point.

Now the onus is on Anderson, and whether she actually follows through with the agreement remains to be seen. Who knows, maybe Stauskas will chaperone.
