  • Skinny white guy declares for NBA Draft; not European, won't get drafted.

    A gentleman by the name of Zach Feinstein decided to test the powers that be at the National Basketball Association. With just a letter and a few forms of information the 5'8", 130 pound Junior at Washington University in St. Louis (double majoring in Systems Engineering and Applied Mathematics), is officially a candidate for the NBA Draft......
    At this point I was unsure what would be needed next, so I waited to be contacted.

    Finally on April 1, I got a reply - a letter in my mailbox from the NBA. But this was no April Fools' joke. They were letting me into the NBA Draft.

    All I needed to do was fill out 3 pages. I faxed those forms in on April 2nd.

    Since I had waited and heard nothing back from the NBA in terms of confirmation, on the morning of April 14th I decided to call up the NBA. This conversation went quite well as Erika Ruiz quickly confirmed that all my papers were in order and no further steps needed to be made by me. And behold as of May 1 I am able to find myself on the Early Entry List at draftexpress.com and nbadraft.net under "unknown players".
    How awesome is that? Even more how great would it be if a team completely f'ed up and took the kid?! Good work Zach and good luck in New York on June 26th!

    Fucking awesome. I've always wanted to do something like this, but probably for the NFL. Think they invite everyone to the combine?

        Charlie Tuna has stated in the past that if you are white and too skinny, you won't get drafted....

              It's actually pretty tough to get to the combine. There are a bunch of guys from major colleges who end up getting drafted who don't receive an invite.

                    Shit, I should declare for the draft.

                    I'm reasonably sure that I'd instantly be compared to Steve Nash, once the scouts saw me play.
                    “I’ve always stated, ‘I’m a Missouri Tiger,’” Anderson said March 13 after Arkansas fired John Pelphrey, adding, “I’m excited about what’s taking place here.”

                    Asked then if he would talk to his players about the situation, he said, “They know me, and that’s where the trust comes in.
