A lanky blogger walked into Barclays Center in Brooklyn Thursday night pretending to be an NBA Draft pick—and it worked, Fox Sports reports. The 6-foot-10-inch Connor Toole first posed for photos with fans outside the Center, then sauntered inside and got right out on the floor. "It turns out if you wear a suit, act really confident and are also 7-feet tall, it’s real easy to get on the floor of the NBA Draft,” says Toole in a YouTube video [WARNING: RACY CONTENT]. He even donned a Utah Jazz cap and went out in New York City, where he sprayed champagne, got flashed by women, and made out with one before heading home. "All around, it sounds like a great life when you’re in the NBA," he says. "Can’t wait to wake up at 9 o’clock and go to work.” See his account at Elite Daily. (More blogger stories.)
