It started with a (hopefully) innocuous request four months ago:

And even though she came a few hundred RTs short, Andre Drummond still took her to prom, because that's the type of dude he is. And it's not like the Pistons would be doing anything in late May anyway.

Here's a few pictures of the couple that are equal parts endearing and sweet (and also kind of weird, right?):

If you're a guy at this school let us know how you feel. We mean, she opted to campaign for 12,000 freakin' retweets rather than take any of you...

Got to sting a little.

As for the faculty, here's what the principal of whatever her school is called said (according to the Detroit Free Press):

Watson said the school knew for months Drummond would be accompanying Smith. But officials were insistent that the high-profile date not overshadow the prom.

“He was absolutely amazing,” Watson said. “He stayed at prom almost two hours, was social with everyone, he was very nice. Of course even the adults wanted pictures and he was very accommodating. He was just an unbelievable.”

All in all it sounds like it was a good night.

Though, no word on whether he got her home on time.
