Just a reminder, it’s that time of year again, April Fools Day is right around the corner but it came a little early for Warriors big man Festus Ezeli.
The whole operation was ran by teammate Andre Iguodala who had a well thought out plan to trick his teammate. As Festus was picked up by his Lyft driver, he received the very unfortunate news that the Warriors were planning to release him.
What makes this an even greater prank is that Ezeli has been sidelined since January 25 with a knee injury, which had to make him being released feel even more real. Having his teammates text him was just the icing on the cake.
Let this be a learning lesson for us all, April Fools pranks will be in full effect tomorrow. Protect yourself, believe half of what you see and none of what you hear. Everyone is scheming up a prank to get a good laugh at your expense.
