WATCH: Nets’ Mascot Butchers Attempted Slam Dunk … Badly
NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Who says that NBA preseason games aren’t exciting?
Well, many people would say that they aren’t exciting.
But as is always the case with live entertainment, you just never know what you’re going to see.
That logic applied on Tuesday night at Barclays Center when the Nets hosted the Celtics.
Brooklyn’s mascot, the BrooklyKnight, attempted a trampoline dunk over the dance team. It didn’t work out so well.
The mascot ran from one end of the court to the other, jumped off the trampoline and proceeded to lose control of the ball while in midair.
The result? A basketball stuck under the shot clock. Ever seen that before? We didn’t think so.
The BrooklyKnight better get his act together before the Nets make their regular-season debut on November 1 against the Heat.
