Basketball player Andre Drummond has found love and it all started on Instagram.
Drummond set his sights on former Nickelodeon i Carly star Jennette Mc Curdy.
This past weekend, the duo was seen with friends going to the movies, visiting Disneyland, and playing Laser Tag.

Sam and Jodie Russell are the masterminds behind the two-month-old dating website, Where White People The way we conduct ourselves each and every day proves it.” The billboard caused such offense that the city made them take it down.
Hwang argues that this phenomenon is caused by stereotyping of Asians in Western society.
In 2007, economist Ray Fisman, in a two-year study he co-authored on dating preferences among Columbia University students, did not find evidence of a general preference among white men for Asian women.
Furthermore, the study found that there is a significantly higher pairing of white men with East Asian women because East Asian women discriminate against black and Hispanic/Latino men.
