Memphis Grizzlies' Quincy Pondexter Asks Out Miss Tennessee on Twitter

Though his team was swept by the San Antonio Spurs in the Western Conference finals, Quincy Pondexter of the Memphis Grizzlies enjoyed a very successful series, averaging 15.3 points, 3.3 rebounds and 1.0 assist. 

His performance off the pine was impressive, but he trumped it by scoring a date with Miss Tennessee with a little help from Twitter.

Pondexter started out with a simple inquiry, and the situation escalated from there.

Miss Tennessee herself, Chandler Lawson, caught wind of Pondexter's question and gave him one back:

Pondexter saw his opportunity and skipped all the small talk, boldly asking out Ms. Lawson. 

Let that be a lesson to all the guys out there (and ladies too, I suppose). Don't be afraid to tweet that special someone and ask him or her out for a date, regardless of what beauty contests he or she might have won.

Apparently, that approach totally works. Excuse me for a second while I send a tweet to the 49 remaining Miss (insert state name here) titleholders.

I suppose it would help if I go 12-of-25 from beyond the arc in the Western Conference Finals first.

Sometimes, it can be a good thing for a basketball player's season to end slightly early. Now, the only thing Pondexter has left to decide is where to take his new lady on their first date.

I'd say go with a Chuck E. Cheese's—that way, he can show off how good he is at Pop-A-Shot. Or just take her to a park with his ridiculously cute puppy.

My final request it that they somehow get Metta World Peace to live-tweet their date, which seems to be his profession of late.
