The NFL combine is notorious for asking some strange questions when teams are interviewing potential prospects. Apparently the NBA is the same way. Former Kansas guard, Frank Mason III, was asked in an interview “What was one of the questions you were asked during the NBA draft combine?” You won’t believe how ridiculous the question one team asked Mason. Some team thought it was important to ask Mason how he’d prefer to die. What?!!!? Come again?
Let’s see what Twitter thought of this crazy question.
Didn't see that one coming. 😳 https://t.co/wmK1jZV8xT

I'm assuming they were looking for Mason's response to that question to be something along the lines of "I want to die on the court playing the game I love." But seriously. Don't you think there is other questions you can ask to determine how much a potential prospect loves the game of basketball. After hearing about questions like these, there should probably be a universal human resource person who examines all the questions the teams are wanting to ask the players before they ask them. This way ridiculous questions like these can be avoided in the future.
