On Tuesday night, the Cleveland Cavaliers won the No. 1 overall pick in the 2014 NBA Draft during the NBA Draft Lottery despite being a long shot to win the pick. That left the Milwaukee Bucks with the No. 2 overall pick, but it wasn’t all bad news for the Bucks and their fans because their franchise generated some buzz thanks to Ms. Mallory Edens.
Mallory, the 18-year-old daughter of Bucks co-owner Wes Edens, is a beautiful blonde-hair, blue-eyed girl that got the social media troops rallying behind her. It was a true, “Mericah!” moment.
After being shown on the screen, Edens’ Twitter following skyrocketed.
Prior to the lottery, Mallory Edens was sitting comfortable with a few hundred followers on social media, but as soon as she started generating all of the buzz her account shot to over 34,000 in a matter of hours.
Pretty impressive, right?
Well, not if you are Katherine Webb.
If you all remember, the last time a beautiful woman created this much buzz it was none other than the future Mrs. A.J. McCarron when she was spotted in the stands by ESPN’s Brent Musberger, who instantly gushed over her.
It was during the national championship game and Webb’s following instantly shot up a whopping 100,000.
That just goes to show the true power of college football.
So while Mallory Edens may not have had the boost from the men in Milwaukee that aren’t used to seeing women like her that Webb received from a worldwide audience, it was still a pretty impressive and fascinating rise to Internet stardom.
And while Mallory Eden got most of the praise from Tuesday night, let’s not ignore Anjali Ranadive, the daughter of Sacramento Kings owner Vivek Ranadive.
