Even if he can't dribble, shoot or jump, this NBA aspirant and jokester got our attention with a recent posting on Imgur. User Nemoran wrote, "After a few drinks three weeks ago, I declared myself eligible for the NBA Draft. Completely forgot about it until I got this in the mail today."
Here's what appears to be a genuine response from the NBA's Office of the General Counsel. It's addressed to a Mr. M (with the rest of the last name redacted) in Hoboken, N.J.
The letter was met with more than a few kidders vying to represent the free agent hopeful. Mixed in were several references to Jerry Maguire, the fictional sports agent agent played by Tom Cruise in the movie of the same name. Lots of catch-phrases from that 1996 classic, too.
Gamejinni summed it up in one response on Reddit: "You need an agent. That's where I come in. I have a cellphone, a bank account and a desire to deposit your money in my bank account. Help me help you. Show me the money. You had me at hello."
The NBA didn't immediately respond to The Huffington Post's request for comment. But, really, what is there to say?
Even if our Hoboken hotshot never makes it to the big-time, he'll always have a big-time letter to show off.
