ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — A few weeks ago we saw the Charlotte Bobcats, as part of their rebranding into the Charlotte Hornets, say goodbye to their mascot, Rufus. It was a sad, bittersweet farewell, one that won’t soon be forgotten.
Turns out, Rufus was not the only one. Earlier this week, Grantland’s Zach Lowe broke news that the axe was dropping in Brooklyn.
We only had two seasons to get to know BrooklyKnight, the oddly named, superhero-themed mascot. Which, to be fair, was longer than any Brooklyn coaches have lasted.
And now BrooklyKnight is gone.
Goodbye, dear friend. We hardly knew ye.
