Here's a random fact: law schools have proms. What do you know? Another fact: Steven Adams has agreed to go to one—sort of.
The Thunder big man on Tuesday agreed to accompany a fan to her law school's formal event... three years after she asked him to do it. Here's the original tweet from the fan, posted in Jan. 2015:
And Adams' belated response, posted early Monday evening:
Absolutely— Steven Adams (@RealStevenAdams) February 19, 2018
It's unclear why Adams responded so late—did he just randomly remember the tweet? Did someone just draw his attention to it? He's pretty active on Twitter, so it's not like he had just logged in for the first time in three years.
Adams is certainly aware of the weird timing. He retweeted an ESPN post that called attention to the lateness of his response to the fan.
One Twitter user asked an obvious question: is this still even a possibility?
Real question is are you still in Law School?!— Keith Jack Da🔌 (@iKeithDJack) February 20, 2018
Apparently the fan is out of law school, but she's still hoping to take Adams to some sort of formal event—like a wedding.
Or maybe he will just be my date to your wedding?— Lo (@itsloyo) February 20, 2018
She also went on TMZ to talk about the viral moment:
We're pulling for the fan. Do it, Steven.
