BROOKLYN, NY – Every year people across the world tune in to see which top players go to which teams in the NBA draft.

Thursday night was no different… except maybe a few more people should have tuned in.

If they had watched, they probably wouldn’t have fallen for this man’s charade.

Connor Toole, the Elite Daily’s senior humor writer, decided to see if he could fool people into believing he was just drafted by the Utah Jazz.

Well, guess what… the ill-fitting suit, untrimmed beard and various NBA hats worked.

He was able to convince groups in the streets of Manhattan the Utah Jazz used its second-round pick to take him at No. 42 in the draft.
