MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A Champlin Park High School senior has high hopes for prom.
Eighteen-year-old Georgetta Wuo is trying to get Timberwolves point guard Ricky Rubio to be her date. She posted a YouTube video asking the 21-year-old Spanish basketball star to prom last Friday. The video has more than 18,000 views, and Rubio’s teammates have seen it, too.
J.J. Barea, Rubio’s fellow point guard, said Rubio should go.
“I don’t think he’s ever been to prom, so I think it’d be fun for him,” Barea said.
Kevin Love also said Rubio should go, since he can probably make the date.
“There’s no game that night,” Love said. “If Ricky’s in town, I think he should go.”
Anthony Tolliver noted that since Rubio is recovering from ACL surgery, he’s got some time on his hands.
“Heck yeah, he should do it,” Tolliver said. “Why not? He’s not going to be doing anything!”
