Video: The Nets new mascot — Brooklyn Knight. Um, okay.

Nov 5, 2012, 5:07 PM EDT

That was the rather ridiculous entrance of the Nets new mascot opening night — meet Brooklyn Knight.

You see what they did there: Brooklyn Knight, Brooklynite. Get it? Really clever stuff.

I’m not sure there’s a good way to introduce a mascot, but whatever it might be that wasn’t it. I guess the Nets worked with Marvel Comics to come up with the mascot and he has some…. interesting super powers (according to the team):

 “He is equipped to handle almost any threat with a protective metal B on his chest, metal knee, elbow, and face coverings, defined muscles, including a six-pack, and a multi-functional cape.”

I wanted a multi-functional cape with a six-pack, but not quite how they intended it.

Maybe he grows on everybody. If you tried to explain the Phoenix Gorilla to people it would sound stupid, but it just works. We love him. But this guy….

    Haha… that’s funny cause around me office we thought the Brooklyn Nets was a terrible name… and so we tried to come up with a better one, and we ended up settling on the Brooklyn Knights

    Come on, this is corny. What were you thinking Jay-Z? This had to have your approval. Gonna have to let it go for now but it might be time for a new marketing Dept.

    Hey! Look up Darren Stevens and see what he’s up to!

    Maybe British Knights will now supply the team’s official footwear?
