Well, the deadline has come to submit my official letter of intent to the NBA for my entry to the 2018 draft. As you’d probably expect from my original announcement of declaring for the draft, I pulled no punches in my official letter.
I took this opportunity to give Mr. Adam Silver and the rest of the league executives on notice that Mr. Buns was coming. They might think they can contain me, but that just simply can not be done.
Many predict Luka Doncic, Deandre Ayton, Colin Sexton, or Michael Porter, and Marvin Bagley to be the top draft picks this year, but I can’t wait to see the looks on all their faces when the TV cameras roll into my living room to see my reaction to getting drafted #1 overall.
They’re gonna have some great content when they come in to find me a 30-rack deep eating chicken wings and going absolutely bananas because I am the newest member of the Phoenix Suns.
Although being drafted is very exciting, I’m glad the season ends in June and even earlier for the Suns. I don’t do well in the heat, to be honest, I hate the heat, anything over 80 degrees is just too much and we should all stay inside in the air conditioning on those days. Luckily its a dry heat in Arizona and I won’t be a sticky puddle from the damn New England humidity.
Anyways, without further ado here is my official letter to the NBA:
April 21, 2018
To Whom It May Concern:
My name is Thomas ********* aka. Tommy Buns. I would like to express that it is my full intention to declare for the 2018 NBA Draft. I am incredibly excited to be considered alongside players like Deandre Ayton, Grayson Allen, Trae Young, Luka Doncic, Mikal Bridges, and Colin Sexton. Although I don’t believe they are ready to be devastated when teams select me ahead of them.
I’m sort of like lightning in a bottle and come out of nowhere, extremely fast. Sticking with the light references, I am no flash in the pan type of player and consistency will surely be key in my game. I think it would be best if you put the entire league on notice that Tommy Buns, aka. Tommy Forced Turnovers, aka Tommy Euro step, aka. Tommy Tomahawk 360, is coming for the crown. Even your golden child Lebron “Blame my teammates” James isn’t ready for the hellstorm of a defender coming his way. It might hurt your “Lebron is the greatest player alive” narrative, but I’m sorry it just has to be done, my ferocity is undeniable.
My playing experience has been at Blackstone-Millville Regional High school, home of the Chargers, as well as the University of Massachusetts – Amherst Intramural “Top-Gun” League. I am currently a Junior at the University, but ready to put that life behind and take my talents atop the Association.
My date of birth is February 12, 1996 (22 years and 69(nice) days). My daytime contact info is (***) ***-
****(mobile). My mailing address is: *********** ********** ** *****
I can not wait to join the rest of the world’s best player in the best professional sports league there is come June.
Thomas G******** aka. Tommy Buns
