Maybe it's because their names are so unique and end with with an "e." Or maybe she just thinks he's cool. Hey, it could even be random. But Beyonce' made a statement two nights ago at the Tidal concert when she got into the Nets locker room ... and had this photo taken in front of Rondae Hollis-Jefferson's locker! It wound up on the Instagram.
Andy Vasquez recorded the moment for The Record...
After the show, a photo began circulating on social media: It was Beyonce, posing in front of Hollis-Jefferson’s locker, nameplate and all.
After Wednesday’s practice, when a reporter showed Hollis-Jefferson the photo, he immediately said "Oh, my God!" and started looking for teammates to show. Minutes later, the 20-year-old rookie still was grinning.
RHJ also commented on Instagram. "When the Queen B takes a pic in front of your locker... #CHAP #BrooklynTakeOver #GreatLockerChoiceBey."
There are many "Welcome to the NBA" moments in a player's first year. Most involve another kind of image, a poster perhaps. This one, however, will be cherished.
