Teen lands prom date with Nik Stauskas’ girlfriend

The Detroit News

A request once interrupted with a stammer and punctuated by an awkward pause has been replaced by a simple tweet.

A teen asked Sacramento Kings and former Michigan player Nik Stauskas how many retweets on Twitter would it take to have girlfriend Taylor Anderson be his high school prom date.

The Twitter account is listed to Jaime Guerra, a senior at Woodhaven High.

The Kings guard replied 10,000. Anderson signed off on the deal.

Two hours later, through the help of other NBA players and athletes enlisted by the teen through social media pleas, he had the requisite number of retweets.

No word on if Stauskas will drive.
