6’10” Blogger Successfully Pretends To Be Drafted By Utah Jazz
If you were a 6’10“ man in a suit on Thursday at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, odds are you were there to get drafted by an NBA team.
But unlike the two Waterloo Black Hawk players who actually were drafted over the weekend
Conor Toole fit all those characteristics in finagling his way onto the floor of the NBA draft--only Toole isn’t a basketball player. Instead, he’s a blogger for Elite Daily.
After the draft, he hit a slew of NYC hotspots wearing a Utah Jazz ballcap, sticking to the story that he’d been drafted by that team in the second round. He proceeded to get VIP treatment, as well as an unusual amount of attention from women.
As far as pranks go, this ain't half bad.
