On Tuesday, in the afterglow of Duke's title victory, we wrote about how Jon Scheyer apparently tweeted his phone number so fans could get in touch with him. ↵

↵As it turns out, that phone number wasn't Scheyer's. The Chicago Tribune has the details on a well-executed practical joke. ↵

↵⇥ Scheyer played a prank on high school teammate Zach Kelly by tweeting Kelly's cell phone number to his more than 6,700 followers, who assumed it was Scheyer's number. ↵⇥

↵⇥As of Wednesday, Kelly had received more than 2,000 text messages and several hundred calls. Scheyer's latest tweet begs his fans to stop texting and calling his friend. ↵⇥

↵Hopefully part of Scheyer's first professional check goes to covering this poor guy's cell phone bill this month. Here's hoping Kelly has unlimited text messaging. ↵
