Celebrities showing their allegiances in the NBA is not rare. Eminent personalities like Drake and Snoop Dogg openly admit their love for their favorite teams. In one such instance, Spiderman star Zendaya revealed her favorite basketball player to be Stephen Curry.

Interestingly enough, a fellow Golden State Warriors star asked her out. It is none other than the latest Warriors superstar, Jordan Poole.

Poole used his friendship with Klay Thompson to ask out Zendaya. All the way back in 2019, Thompson dated another Spiderman star, Laura Harrier. Harrier tagged Thompson in a post that drew a comment from Zendaya herself, and Poole used this opportunity to shoot his shot at her.
