Watch these NBA fans uncomfortably interact with their team's newest draft picks via Google Hangout

Friday June 27th, 2014

As evidenced by Extra Mustard's amazing new draft game, there is a large cross-section of nerds and people who love the NBA draft. And thus it was kind of inevitable that the NBA's video chats between fan's and last nights draftees might be a little uncomfortable.

The uncontrollable yelling and the players trying to remember all their PR training combined with the inevitable lag of a video chat leads to some of the most delightfully stilted conversation you will ever see.

Congrats to Jabari Parker for doing his best to match the fans enthusiasm, and to Julius Randle for just getting the hell out of there as fast as possible.
