    <a href="http://www.draftfeinstein.com/process.php">.... even if your name is Zach Feinstein and you're a junior at Washington University in St. Louis who only has played pick up basketball. And the NBA bought it, apparently.</a>

    This stuff happens every year. There were nine people listed on NBADraft.net last year who did it, and a kid on SI.com did it the year before.

    Ho-hum.

    Maybe, but the guy's Web site is pretty effin' hilarious.
     
  6. This reminds me of a college friend who sent a letter to the New Jersey Nets when they were looking for a head coach in 1999 or 2000. He sent them a serious letter telling them his qualifications, experience, etc. Best part is that he actually got an official letter back from the Nets GM at the time.

    A buddy of mine from high school was the first ever, I believe, to do this.

    He sent a letter to David Stern back in 1991 announcing his early entry. The NBA actually called our junior-college coach to get info on him for the draft info they sent out to the teams.

    He was included on the same list as the likes of Billy Owens and Anderson Hunt, and got a ton of local press after he did it.

    Some kids did this a few years back for the NFL and showed up to the combine in jeans.

    If that kid is from Western PA, I know him as well. He played ball for a community college if I remember correctly.

    Actually, it was in the Midwest.

    I know the idea caught on over the following year or three after my buddy did it...we kept an eye on the lists specifically to see if he'd started a trend.

    Either way, it was some funny stuff, and got my buddy on TV and in the paper a few times.

    Good for him.
