The Office’s Toby Flenderson court side at a Utah Jazz playoff game???

We are living in the best timeline. Paul Lieberstein, the actor who played Toby in the office, could be courtside in Utah.

If Toby Flenderson is sitting courtside ... does that make Joe Ingles the Scranton Strangler? Or does that make Joe Ingles Toby Flenderson and Paul Lieberstein the Scranton Strangler?

It’s been a running gag that the Utah Jazz’s Joe Ingles has a striking resemblance to that one guy who plays ball on Saturdays at the Y Toby Flenderson from the Office. The SB Nation account has had A LOT of fun with this gag.

Utah Jazz fans might have to figure that out soon as The Office’s Paul Lieberstein has set his terms and availability to be at the next Utah Jazz game: Court Side Seats.

This is a no brainer. When you have a chance to bring the most intimidating man in sitcom history to troll your most hated rival, you do it every time. EVERY DAMN TIME. As of writing this the Utah Jazz have not responded with a court side ticket, but if they were willing to give Mitt Romney a ticket you have to give Joe Ingles’ twin a chance to see his own family play.

Also, in case you missed it ... we have Toby Flenderson JINGLES! T-Shirts now available.


Whether he’s making seven 3-pointers in a playoff game or flashing a thumbs up in a photo op, Joe Ingles has become a Utah fan favorite.
