It’s a tale as old as time: you have to shoot to score. And maybe no athlete knows that better than the basketball player. That’s why UCLA Freshman TJ Left shooting his shot at Taylor Swift, while futile, is still commednable. So what she’s got almost a decade on him? So what she’s won 10 Grammy’s and may be the most recognizable pop star in the world. TJ Leaf has not one, but TWO Pac-12 Player of the Weeks under his belt goddammit.
