Mason III gets asked morbid question at NBA combine (0:22)

Kansas' Frank Mason III tells Jeff Goodman that an NBA team asked him how he would prefer to die. (0:22)

People have varying opinions when it comes to the NBA combine. Most of those have to do with whether it's a good use of time for serious pro prospects.

But a new controversial subtopic arose out of the combine on Thursday, when Frank Mason III was asked by a team how he would want to die.

The question is odd in any context, but it's especially hard to see what the inquiry has to do with basketball.
