Sacramento Kings rookie guard Ben McLemore is a bit of a jokester.
The former Kansas star has spent a good portion of his offseason posting relatively funny videos of him pulling pranks on people, say like putting snakes in a Taco Bell bag that he handed to his Mother.
Yesterday, during the Kings’ media day, he was at it again, this time with the assistance of forward Patrick Patterson.
Patterson, equipped with a full Nerf basketball hoop attached to him, quietly lurked around the Kings’ practice facility until he found an unsuspecting Travis Outlaw, just waiting to be abused. Patterson motioned for all in the area to be quiet and he tried to sneak up behind Outlaw, but the fellow Kings forward began to notice everybody looking and felt Patterson’s presence behind him. Figuring something was out of order, Outlaw turned around – but it was too late. Coming into the picture was a full sprint McLemore who posterized Outlaw, sending him to the ground.
Media day, everybody. Media day.
