Ladies love Blazers' Rudy Fernandez - Ball Don't Lie - NBA Blog - Yahoo! Sports
The 12th Man hits the sexy nail on the sexy head: "Whether it's the un-tameable curls, the perma-five-o'clock-shadow or the Spanish mystique, Rudy Fernandez(notes) has been a favorite of the ladies since debuting with the Portland Trail Blazers last season."
But don' think for a second that Fernandez's sex appeal is only isolated to the cougars of Oregon. No, ladies love "Cool Rudy" all over America — especially in Dallas, where two females recently approached him during the game, whispered sweet nothings in his ear, and then returned to their seats as though nothing out of the ordinary had happened. Swoon!
Jason Quick of The Oregonian reports:
"During a timeout with 41 seconds left in regulation, two women walked onto the court and into the Trail Blazers huddle. One woman wrapped her arms around the waist of Blazers guard Rudy Fernandez from behind. Fernandez, who was not in the game but focused on the plays being diagrammed by coach Nate McMillan, was stunned.Shockingly, the ladies were believed to have been drunk.
'I was surprised,' Fernandez said. 'I was listening to the coach on the bench and behind me, she touches me and says, 'Rudy, I love you. Nice to meet you. Good game.'
'I said, 'What?'' [...]
The women were ushered away from the huddle, and amazingly allowed to return to their courtside seats under the basket and watch the remainder of the game, which went to overtime."
Liquid courage, man.
