Hey! No more terrifying mascot
Right. So, first cab off the rank, the Nets have taken one important step in improving their fan experience: they got rid of one the world’s finest examples of ideas gone horribly, horribly wrong. Who knows what pushed the Nets to realize the Brooklyn Knight was a bad idea. Crying children? Non-responsive, snickering adults? Nonetheless, it’s clear that dumping him (it?) was the correct decision.
BrooklyKnight was like your creepy uncle Jeremy. No one knows why the grown ups don’t talk about him much, and when they do, they worry about what the kids think of him, and why he still has that creepy van he bought in college.
Anyway. The Nets won’t have a mascot this year, relying instead on putting their faith in the existing and excellent entertainment crew to keep fans engaged during timeouts and game breaks. That’s the best option heading into future seasons, unless they resurrect Sly the Silver Fox.
Actually, that’s an idea; zombies are cool — Zombie Sly, anyone? No? Ok, I’ll show myself out.
Because your mascots should be…
