GAINESVILLE -- The Florida men's basketball team had its preseason media day today. It was great fun. From Chandler Parsons to Walter Hodge, there are some real characters on this season's team. The funniest player, however, gets laughs without even trying. His name is Erving Walker, he's a freshman guard from New York City and he looks and speaks just like former Saturday Night Live star Tracy Morgan.
Good thing for you, Gator Clause has the audio to prove it. Warning: this is pretty funny. Click the play button.
Like me, UF senior guard Walter Hodge noticed the similarities between Walker and Morgan the first time Hodge met the freshman guard. This audio interview of Walter also has a pretty funny reference to UF quarterback Tim Tebow.
More on hoops (including an interview with Miami Pace guard Ray Shipman) and football coming later. Sitting outside the football stadium right now waiting for practice to end.
