Tobias Harris gets in water balloon fight
By Eamonn Brennan
Tobias Harris has big things popping these days: He's a likely first-round pick in the upcoming NBA Draft, and he's spent much of the past few months working out for NBA scouts and general managers in advance of the big day. But he's also apparently taking time to have some fun in the sun -- and challenge a gaggle of children to a water balloon fight at a Knoxville, Tenn., waterpark.
No, seriously. Apparently, Harris recently called a Knoxville radio station to announce that he would be at World's Fair Park -- and was challenging kids to a water balloon fight in the process. He followed through, passed out some Gatorades to the thirsty park-goers, snapped a few photos and, yes, took a bunch of painful-sounding water balloons to the torso.
Even better? There's video:
See? Those balloons sound like they hurt! The good news, of course, is that water balloons aren't likely to damage Harris enough to hurt his solid draft stock. A slip-up in those flip-flops? Thankfully, Harris won't have to find out.
