Shattered backboards are always awesome, right? Here is the Pacers’ mascot, Boomer, rocking the rim during a halftime performance at a local high school game over the weekend:
Way to go Boomer, eh? Well, yes, everyone in attendance loved it, but it wasn’t quite as awesome as one might think. You see the New Palestine HS gym they were playing in doesn’t have an unending supply of basketball backboards, so the game had to be moved elsewhere. Fortunately they have an auxiliary gym, so everyone moved over and the game resumed from there.
So, they don’t have any backup backboards, but they do have a backup gym?
