(Kiev, Ukraine) -- Following the official news that he's now the tallest man in the world, a terrified Leonid Stadnik was imprisoned in his own Ukraine home Wednesday night as it was quickly surrounded by creepy NBA talent evaluator Chad Ford, big-man obsessed Don Nelson and a curious Jon Amaechi, who at one point were all staring through his living room window at the same time.
Ford was the most persistent of the trio, repeatedly ringing the door bell, at first pretending to be the pizza guy, then the DHL guy, then the FTD florist guy, then the singing telegram guy, and finally dressing up as a French maid. Following several failed attempts of getting into the house, he later held up a sign through the window saying, "Can I please have a piggyback?"
Nelson approached things differently, sitting at a round table in the massive Ukraine's front lawn for hours, arrogantly throwing back Russian vodka and several cans of international beer. After crushing his last can and throwing it on the lawn, he walked through the front door, looked up at Stadnik, poked him in the chest and said...
"You play for the Warriors, I'll also let you compete on the Nelson Family Vodka Chugging team." He then abruptly left to go scout a 4'8 two-guard in Belarus named Mugsky Bogueskov.
The least intrusive of the bunch was Amaechi. After grabbing Ford's marker and sign, he crossed out Chad's question and wrote one of his own, simply saying "Where did you get that fabulous sweater?"
Stadnik declined questions about the three men but did mention that the sweater was homemade.
