And with the 61st pick in the 2015 NBA draft, the Utah Jazz select...Connor Toole of Elite Daily.

No, the 6'10" writer wasn't actually selected in Thursday's NBA draft. But between his suit and height, he certainly fooled fans standing outside Barclays Center—and the arena's security.

Yes, he got onto the floor of the draft. Because, as he said, "It turns out if you wear a suit, act really confident and are also 7 feet tall, it's really easy."

It's also apparently really easy to get free drinks and, uh, other things (warning: video NSFW).
