Photos: North Carolina F J.P. Tokoto Brought A Giant Teddy Bear Named "Gerry" To His Press Conference This Afternoon

Press conferences can be boring, especially when they occur before or after a practice. Sometimes, there's just not much to talk about. 

J.P. Tokoto decided to spice up his session with the media Friday afternoon. The North Carolina forward brought a giant teddy bear to his press conference in Chapel Hill. 

We're not really sure why he brought it, but it made for some pretty great photos.

Everyone should bring stuffed animals to press conferences.

North Carolina (15-4, 5-1 ACC) is set to host Florida State (10-9, 2-4 ACC) at the Dean Dome Saturday at 2 p.m. E.T. The game will be televised on ESPN.
