The Girlfriend Of Projected First Round Pick Denzel Valentine Is Cuter Than A Litter Of Pomeranian Puppies In Heat

We’re all familiar with former Michigan State hoop standout Denzel Valentine, considering he was seemingly on the team for a decade and has that signature tooth gap that you could drive a Buick through.

Valentine’s spectacular senior season when he averaged 19 ppg, 8 assists, and 7 boards earned him a well deserved AP Player of the Year Award and catapulted him to be a mid-late first round pick in tonight’s NBA Draft.

Denzel is widely viewed as an over-achiever on the court, and from the looks of his off the court acquisitions, he carries that trait into other facets of his life. Insert: Alexis Akers. According to Busted Coverage, Alexis graduated from Michigan State this year and earned a Communications degree.

Since Denzel was chosen as one of the 19 players who’s been invited to sit in the green room at tonight’s draft, you’ll likely see Alexis in the building as well. But, if you have better things to do tonight than watch a draft, allow me to introduce you to Alexis. Like I know her. Shut up, Matt.

Welp. It’s never too late to change your look and wife up a first round draft pick.

Matt’s love of writing was born during a sixth grade assembly when it was announced that his essay titled “Why Drugs Are Bad” had taken first prize in D.A.R.E.’s grade-wide contest. The anti-drug people gave him a $50 savings bond for his brave contribution to crime-fighting, and upon the bond’s maturity 10 years later, he used it to buy his very first bag of marijuana.
