Fan, who says he is better than 'Kobie,' writes letter to Pelicans asking to play for $1 million.
By SHAWN RAMSEY FS Southwest
Ever wonder how to get on a NBA roster without playing college ball? Or any level of basketball for that matter.
Well this fan may have the answer for those wondering.
The nameless fan, whose poor penmanship and grammar isn't exactly up to par to say the least, sent a letter to the
Pelicans states that for the low price of $1 million for the year, he will play for New Orleans.
But what makes this guy think he has what it takes to take a NBA court?
In case you are having problems reading the scribble, here is a transcription:
How would you like a 1 mill a year superstar better than KD LeBron James MJ Kobie Bryant. I am serious Im top notch. I haven't played in 5 years and can do it all. Need to practice I am rusty. I am 6'3 to 6'5 can do shot's block post pass defend rebound steal run do it all. Come get in touch I'll be top of the nba in two years. Im want only 1 mill for like a year. At least come get me trian me one year. Phone (redacted) ??? (redacted). Im what you need for toatel suscses. I play hurt sick and still win. See ya.
There you go, sign this man to a contract. You never know when this kind of talent will come around again.
Even if the Pelicans did consider signing the outgoing fan, it probably wouldn't be the worst contract in NBA history. Right, Gilbert Arenas?
