It’s the first time I’ve used the words “impressive” and “airball” in the same sentence, but I’m not sure how else to describe this.
The Brooklyn Knight — the Nets’ mascot — was in preseason form when his squad hosted the Boston Celtics Tuesday. The Knight went for the trampoline dunk over the dance team and…. as the announcers said, if you tried you couldn’t get the ball stuck like that in the rigging.
Apparently I need to watch more Nets mascot action.
