One of the best gags in a long time came Thursday night when a nearly 7-foot tall blogger for Elite Daily went down to Barclays Center in Brooklyn and pretended to be an NBA draft pick. The fans surrounding the arena ate it all up, and so did plenty of people at the club scene later that night.
How dumb do those folks feel now?
Connor Toole, who is 6-foot-10, headed to Brooklyn for the NBA draft dressed up in a suit. Between his full beard, solid build and earrings, he easily looked like the next Kevin Love, so it’s easy to see how fans were duped. It was even better when Toole went out to the NYC clubs later that night to celebrate, all while wearing a Utah Jazz hat. Yup, he had people convinced he was a second-round selection by the Jazz. They totally bought it.
As the video shows, girls were just falling all over themselves for him, leading him to the dance floor, trading shots, giving out phone numbers, flashing breasts, and even making out.
Now you have a little taste of what it’s like to be a young stud in the league and probably have a little more empathy for guys like this.
