Getting drafted into the NBA is a dream for many aspiring young athletes, and this week the dream became a reality for many young men. Then there was this guy, who blurred the lines between dream and reality. Connor Toole of Elite Daily, who is 6-foot-10 got dressed up and decked himself in a Utah Jazz hat at the NBA Draft, projecting the illusion that he was just drafted.
He fooled fans outside the Barclays Center in Brooklyn and even got in the arena past security. He then enjoyed other perks of being an NBA Draft pick while out in Manhattan.
"It turns out if you wear a suit, act really confident and are also seven feet tall, it's really easy," said Toole.
