NBA Draft prospects star in TGIF parody song on ‘Tonight Show’
The NBA Draft is finally here, and the whole country is feeling the fever of one of the most anticipated drafts in recent memory.
Last night on the Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, numerous draft prospects including Deandre Ayton participated in the parody called ‘Play-by-Play’.
The song was written by Jesse Frederick, who most notably wrote the theme songs to “Full House”, “Family Matters” and “Perfect Strangers”.
Ayton was the first of the prospects to be shown in the video, seen dribbling and then passing a basketball before bumping his head as he walks into a room with a lower ceiling.
Other prospects in the video include Marvin Bagley, Mikal Bridges, Wendell Carter, Jr., Collin Sexton, Mo Bamba, Trae Young, Miles Bridges and Jaren Jackson, Jr.
The Suns hold the first pick in tonight’s draft, with Ayton being touted as the No. 1 by many.
