#BREAKING: NBA Scouts expect Marquette guard Tyler Kolek to go undrafted after he recorded only a 7% on his Wonderlic IQ test…

Reports surfaced earlier this year that Kolek couldn’t read and now his wonderlic score is the lowest by any NBA player ever recorded

A lot of people in the comments don’t realize it’s a joke.

Also, the NBA doesn’t use the Wonderlic.

Pretty disappointed that Kolek did not go in first round, especially in a weak draft. Does the big boys league know what they are doing, or is the world getting more crazy each day?

Yeah, but the NBA drafts on potential and athleticism. Tyler is already 23 and his height is questionable and his combine measurables did not scream athleticism.

this is the same guy who said Kolek was suspended for failing all of his midterms even though A) MU hadn't had midterms yet, and B) NCAA eligibility isn't impacted by academics during the semester. This guy has a serious obsession with Kolek and giving him clicks only encourages a pos like this.

Of course, few will push back on attacking a player like Kolek these days.

Knicks took a 18 year old who likely will not even be on the team this fall. He is a D league development swing by NY.

Jokic was drafted as a doughy 19-year-old who averaged 11/6 in the mighty Adriatic League. He was very much a big swing.

Kolek plays into it. His graduation post on instagram was captioned "I can read." Don't think we should be taking offense when he personally isn't lol. He probably thinks it's hilarious that anyone believes/believed it

That's because Knicks are now loaded. 

Brunson backed up by McBride
Bridges backed up by Divencenzo
Announby backed up by Hart
Randle backed up by Achuiwa
Robinson and if they sign Hartenstien. 

Once Knicks traded for Bridges, figured Kolek not going there
Once Wizards traded up and got Carrington, figured Kolek not going there with their later pick.
Once Minnesota traded for Dillingham, the same with their later pick.
Phoenix traded back and many felt he was there, but they went with a longer, best defensive guard in draft, Ryan Dunn
Utah needed a PG with next pick and they went with the younger, past #1 high school recruit, Collier.

Kolek is older, not as quick, so-so defender.  I don't think he gets past San Antonio with pick #5 in second round.  Would be a good fit there, even with SA drafting a SG in Castle.  Kolek playing in spots with passes to Wemby, cool.  Many think he is first pick in second to Toronto, but teams can't lose out on Filowposki and Furphy.  Kolek lost some money by not going in first and some can speculate all they want with contracts, so we'll find out soon.  But for a player who started out at George Mason, then went from unheralded to All American, to get drafted is a proud thing for him and family. 

Now Oso, who knows.  For a player that can't shot outside the paint, in an NBA that now relies on outside shooting, who knows where he goes. 

Good luck to both at 4:00pm.

Update ...

The post at the top now has 39k likes and now has a community note.

Readers added context they thought people might want to know

NBA prospects do not take the Wonderlic test. They do take the AIQ test, but the results are not available to the public.

Furthermore, Tyler Kolek is not illiterate. This was started as an online joke by Big East fans & Kolel himself has participated in it:

They probably knew they could let him slip into the top quarter of the 2nd.   Get him cheaper.   All he had to do is get past the Celtics....So essentially your theory was/is FOS......
