By now, you know we love/pride ourselves on the latest NBA mascot news around these parts. The preseason has 10 days left in it and teams are working out the kinks, tightening the rotations as they getting ready for 2015-16. The same can (mostly) be said for the NBA’s mascot friends.
At last night’s Pistons-Pacers game from Bankers Life Fieldhouse, a smaller version of the Pacers’ Boomer — called ‘mini’ Boomer — lined up to do a trampoline dunk stunt. As he made his approach (he’s the guy that hits the trampoline second in the video) to flip off the trampoline and catch the ball and dunk it … well … his head fell off.
Points to ‘big’ Boomer for playing off the mishap with a bit of levity.
