The NBA's response to this drunk draft hopeful is really excellent

“As an upstanding young man who is 25 years young…” Thanks for resisting the urge to bin this, NBA.

SO, A 20-SOMETHING New Jersey resident sent the NBA an e-mail on 19 April  declaring his eligibility for the 2013 NBA Draft “after a few drinks.”

A fellow Reddit user left this comment speculating on how the night went down, and nemoran called it “scarily accurate:”

“I bet I could play in the NBA…”

“What? Dude, you’re sh*tfaced…”

“Nah, dude I averaged like 15 my senior year and we went to state. I bet I could play in the NBA.”

Much to his surprise, this dead-serious letter appeared at his doorstep a few weeks later. It says that he’s no longer eligible for the draft, but ends on a hilariously hopeful note:

“As a result, you were eligible for the draft immediately following your senior year, and are now a free agent who is eligible to sign with any NBA team.”

The letter in full:

So, we guess he could sign with a team any day now.

Here’s the e-mail he sent in a few weeks ago:
