We can’t tell if this is a prank, a serious inquiry, or just something that a fourth grader wrote for homework that wound up moving far to high up in the ranks. It could be from Stephon Marbury, for all we know.
Whatever it is, it’s here, and it’s hilarious. Apparently, someone penned the above letter to the Pelicans front office. In it, the man claims to be better than LeBron James, MJ and Kobie (although we’re pretty sure he meant Kobe) and only asks for a mere $1 million salary – this in spite of the fact that he admits to not having played basketball for five years.
Pride goeth before the fall, but we’ve got to admit, we’re liking the confidence. Here’s the transcription of this bad boy, as far as we can tell:
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.
Could Crescent City have the league’s next, 6-foot-3 to 6-foot-5 superstar on its hands?
