The Bulls spent a lot of time in Los Angeles this past week. After playing the Lakers on Friday, they stuck around until Monday when they played the Clippers. That left a lot of time for the players to just hang out.

Doug McDermott took some of that time to wander the streets of Beverly Hills. That’s where he encountered something he’s probably not all that used to – paparazzi.

A TMZ cameraman found the Bulls swing forward and started asking him, of course, about the Kardashians and Jenners. As it turns out, McDermott’s knowledge of the reality TV family went pretty deep, but he specifically wanted to reach out to one family member.

“Hook it up man”

McDermott said the 20-year-old model was his favorite of the family and, with a smile on his face, asked the TMZ reporter to “hook it up.” He then went on to let Jenner, four-years his junior, know he was in town and could get her some tickets if interested.

It’s tough to see McDermott, who was born in North Dakota, grew up in Iowa and went to college in Nebraska, having much in common with the reality star. But who knows, stranger things have happened. Although McDermott’s first celebrity crush didn’t work out all that well.

Maybe a certain Chicago rapper and Bulls fan who is pretty intimate with the Kardashian/Jenner family could help him out.
