Frank Mason III asked how he'd prefer to die at NBA Draft combine

NFL prospects are not the only ones to get asked ridiculous questions at the combine. 

College basketball's player of the year last season, Kansas guard Frank Mason III, said he was asked about his preferred method of death at the NBA Draft combine in Chicago this week.

Mason, who swept the player of the year awards for his senior season, revealed his answer to the bizarre question by telling ESPN: "I said in my sleep because I wouldn't want to suffer from any pain or anything.

"So I'd just rather be sleeping around my son and my family."

Who knows how NBA teams would evaluate the answer of, "I'd like to die in my sleep so I wouldn't feel any pain."

Maybe the person who asked the question would have preferred, "On the court after hitting a game-winning shot." 

Questions like that are used to figure out a player's personality, but there have to be better ones to ask.
