TJ Leaf has been great for UCLA during his freshman season so far. While the 6’10” forward hasn’t garnered the national attention teammate Lonzo Ball has, he’s still a huge part of the Bruins’ 12-0 start. On Saturday Leaf — perhaps overestimating his newfound fame — took a shot on Twitter and asked Taylor Swift when she was going to come to a game.
Look TJ, I appreciate the effort, but you’re like the third most famous guy on a college basketball team and Taylor Swift is one of the most famous women in the world. You may have gone in for the kill a bit early here kid. You’re a 19-year-old college kid, she’s a 27-year-old 10-time Grammy winner. Maybe keep your head down for a few years, make it to the NBA, then take your chance.
Leaf is averaging 17.8 points and 9.3 rebounds per game through 12 contests.
