Now here is a guy with an epic plan. Writer Connor Toole pretended to be a future basketball star, fooling people into believing he was picked in the 2015 NBA Draft. Watch the hilarious video here!

Well, here’s a cunning trick for any man who’s incredibly tall and looking to score free drinks and his pick of women. Connor Toole, a 6’10 writer for Elite Daily, pretended to be recruited in the 2015 NBA Draft on June 25 with hilarious consequences. He was treated like a king by fans who thought he was the NBA’s next big star!

In the funny clip, Connor posed for pictures with a number of fans heading to the draft at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. Connor somehow managed to trick staff at the Barclays Center and made it right onto the floor of the draft! Incredible.

“It turns out if you wear a suit, act really confident and are also 7 feet tall, it’s really easy,” Connor says in the video. And it looks like all those things make it easier to attract girls, too! After the draft, Connor hit Manhattan bars where he was treated to drinks by bar staff and customers. They clearly wanted to make their new best friend happy, especially after he claimed to have been picked by the Utah Jazz. If that’s not enough, Connor even swapped numbers with a host of ladies, even playing tonsil-tennis with one — all for the cameras!

NBA Draft: L.A. Lakers Pick Ohio State Guard D’Angelo Russell

The most exciting event in basketball, other than the NBA Finals, took place June 25 with the L.A. Lakers shaking it up the most. Instead of choosing potential franchise center Jahlil Okafor from Duke, they selected Ohio State guard D’Angelo Russell second overall.

Incredibly, D’Angelo is only the 6th Ohio State freshman to be selected in the common draft era since 1966.

But what about Connor, HollywoodLifers? Are you impressed he pretended to be a future basketball star? Let us know!
