Young Fan Pulls Prank on Knicks’ Shooting Guard
By Tommy Rothman
A couple days ago, I got a message from a fan by the name of Brian O’Grady who told me he was an avid fan of Knicks Shooting Guard JR Smith. After taking a look at Brian’s twitter (and his desperate attempts to get acknowledged by Smith), I felt a bit bad, because I knew the odds of J.R sending Brian a tweet were rather low.
However, while Brian may have been facing an uphill battle in trying to get noticed by Smith, one of the things he tweeted struck me as rather true.
Brian was spot-on, but unfortunately, he is not an attractive woman of hispanic descent, and he is too big of a fan of Smith to insult the Knicks’ star Sixth Man.
But as Clyde Frazier would say, Brian “would not be denied”. Brian changed his twitter profile— the header, the picture, the bio, everything— and took on the role of a stunning young hispanic woman named “Marissa Prejano”. He (she?) then sent J.R a tweet, and Smith promptly responded.
Brian then changed his profile back, but the evidence of Smith’s tweet to “Marissa” remains
Well played, Brian. And as for you, Mr. Smith, I hear there is a certain Chargers Linebacker who wants to be your friend.
So in conclusion, if there is anyone out there who wants to have a chat with JR Smith, you better be prepared to “edit” some of your background info first.
