Perry Ellis is only 22, but he's been playing college basketball for what feels like 37 years and looks decidedly not 22. For that reason, the Internet has been fond of making jokes about how old the Kansas forward is. On Saturday, Ellis got in on the action.
The fun didn't stop with Ellis saying he had gotten to play with Danny Manning and Wilt Chamberlain. His teammates and coach all got asked what their favorite jokes about the senior's age are.
Of course, the Internet always has the best jokes, though.
