NBA Draft reveals a surprising, cold hard fact about one player — and Twitter has some questions

Luke Kennard can’t let go of his ‘Frozen’ love

Posted on

Luke Kennard is about to be a millionaire NBA player, but he can’t let go of his love for Frozen.

During Thursday’s NBA Draft, ESPN had a handy guide to help fans learn more about their newest players. Upon Kennard, a 20-year-old Duke guard, being drafted at No. 12 by the Detroit Pistons, among the facts flashed onscreen were his impressive high school career statistics and the more important tidbit that he knows every word from the Oscar-winning Disney feature Frozen.

But “let it go” wasn’t something viewers could do so easily. The revelation delighted and confused many on Twitter. J.E. Skeets, a member of NBA TV’s The Starters, shared a screenshot and tweeted, “We’re callin’ this dude Olaf.” Meanwhile, another Twitter user wrote, “Luke Kennard knows every word to the movie Frozen… the whole movie?! All of the dialogue?!”

For Kennard’s sake, let’s hope the Pistons don’t have a game scheduled on Nov. 27, 2019 — the date Frozen 2 will be released.
