The NBA has a storied history of fans impersonating current stars. Recently, we've seen fat Klay Thompson, fake James Harden and faux Kawhi Leonard.
However, we haven't really seen a former NBA player mistaken for a current baller. But that all changed on June 22, as a fan mistook former Sacramento Kings' center Scot Pollard for the Oklahoma City Thunder's center Steven Adams.
Pollard wasted no time, quickly trolling the fan by telling him he's going to join the Kings. Considering the Kings are likely losing Willie Cauley-Stein in free agency, this objectively fake rumor actually makes a lot of sense.
While Pollard was likely just giving his former team a shoutout, NBA rumor season never sleeps. Just don't get your hopes up, Kings fans.
