Terrence Jones may be the most interesting player in the NBA Draft. Off the court at least. Jones raps, makes nice with rival cheerleaders and signs pregnant women’s stomachs. All of that stuff is cheap though. For Jones latest noteworthy deed, he helped a Kentucky superfan get his smile back. From Kentucky.com:
With the aid of the former Kentucky forward, William Bolden — a 22-year-old UK basketball superfan who has developed a bit of a YouTube following with Wildcats-oriented videos posted under his nickname “Stone Cold Willow” — got extensive dental work at no cost to him.
Included over the course of eight dental appointments were two teeth pulled, 12 cavities filled and three new front teeth installed.
Bolden lost three teeth in a fight when he was 13. Since then he had been covering his mouth when he smiled. Jones met Bolden on campus and often saw him dancing in the student section during games. The team even got a “Stone Cold Willow” fathead to hang in Rupp.
“Being around (Bolden), knowing what type of person he is, it’s only right for him to be able to smile,” Jones said. “As much as he makes us laugh, to have him be smiling back at us is just great.”
Whoever drafts Jones tonight will get a good basketball player and a good kid.
